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.
We found another beautiful spot!
The trees in this spot were all leaning like they had been pushed over by the water many times.
There were amazing bromiliads in the trees
Everything is covered with other things growing!
There were lots of these pretty spiders on the rocks
This is the trunk of a huge tree. I took some photos of the upper part of the tree but they didn’t do it justice.
This is one of the biggest rubber trees I’ve seen.
One of the bent over trees along the bank. They were all covered with moss and other plants.
I’m not sure what this tree is, but the trunk and bark sure are interesting.
Yes, it is what you think! Check out the video.
The back of the big building. Check out the huge cactus plants. There was also a big clump of them along the driveway in.
You could have quite the party in this place!
I’m not sure what these little places were for, maybe covered picnic areas?
This building was behind the big party space, and it was obviously used as an entertainment spot. There were piles of empty liquor bottles.
Some playground equipment, also in poor condition.
The new and improved Via Boquete with smooth pavement, new lines, crosswalks, and arrows for intersections!
I also took some video.
