I had read in my guidebook that Boquete
is a great place to visit. The cool mountain air was a welcome change after the humid heat of the past four days, but the town itself didn't really have that much to offer. Yes, there are some nice treks that can be down in the surrounding hills (do *not* mention the word trekking to me again for at least the next six months!) and there are several coffee farms which you can visit.
However, carnaval had started and pretty much everything was closed. Both of us were knackered from the previous two days and the hectic travelling we'd done all morning, so in the end we didn't do anything during our stay in Boquete. A bit of a waste of a day really.
The only good memory I have of Boquete is the coffee. Boy had it been a while since I had last had a good brew (has it really been only a week since San José?) so I was sure to sample some of the local roasts.
