A Waterfall by the River

Yesterday, we went a little ways up the Via Boquete to a spot on our list of places to explore. It’s by the river and there is a great waterfall. It looks like someone in the past had made it a fun place but now it is uncared for and run down. But, the river sure is beautiful. It’s so lush and green, and there is moss and other plants on all the trees. We saw a blue morph butterfly and two blue and black poison dart frogs, but they ran off too fast for us to get photos. We did get photos of the area though, so scroll through the gallery.

I also took some video.

    I always enjoyed passing that spot on the bus when I lived up in Potrerillos Arriba. I did my own post on it back in 2010. http://onemoregoodadventure.com/2010/08/09/ovecoming-inertia/ The waterfall, though small, is spectacular in its own, quiet way.

      So, the place was in business when you were there? Now it looks totally abandoned. I agree, it’s a beautiful waterfall, and so close we can easily enjoy it.

        Part of it was…the jardin. I stopped there and had a beer and chatted with the young guy working there. He said they had dances on the weekends. The rest of the place had the same neglected look to it then as in your pics.

      ha! LOL We didn’t even go in the water, and we’re definitely too old to be diving off of rocks. I was just thinking that I’m glad I wasn’t the mother of those guys or I’d be having a heart attack.

    Beautiful spot! We are finally going to be in Panama. We will be in Boca Chica from July 23 to 25 and in David from 26 to 30. We would love to get together sometime to meet if this will work for you.

  5. Beautiful spot. I think we passed it once on our day long bus ride. We got on the bus in David and spent the entire day riding the bus around the mountains. It was a cheap tour and the bus driver even took us to his house for lunch. 🙂
