At Boquete Tree Trek, they have put a lot of effort into making the grounds beautiful. Not far from our cabin was a little stream where flowers had been planted and there were walkways that made it easy to wander and enjoy the scenery.
The heliconias were really beautiful.
Another beautiful heliconia.
I’ve seen quite a few of these tall, white flowers around Boquete.
There were many beautiful waterfalls in the stream
An interesting large tree covered with vines.
A bromiliad in bloom.
I always love photographing water. This was taken with a slower shutter speed to give a softer effect to the water, but it was so windy the plants also blurred, an unplanned but interesting effect.
As the sun started to set I like the way the light catches these bromiliads in the tree.
Some polar bears (tourists in shorts) venture out for a hike.
Another tree covered with bromiliads, with the zip line cables visible in the background.
We were told that the rocks get red because there is so much iron in the water.

the white calla lilies are so elegant and pristine! i never get tired of tropical flowers! z
Oh yes, I know what you mean. I’m glad you enjoyed the photos, and thanks for confirming that those are calla lilies. I wasn’t sure so didn’t want to label them.
We were just commenting yesterday that there are so many heliconias here but we’ve never seen a true Bird of Paradise. Funny when they are from the same family.
Lovely pics once again Kris!
You’re right, I haven’t either. There were many in Florida, but not here.
Gracias amiga 🙂
Love the pictures Kris, you did a great job taking them. I love Heliconias, I have a lot at home in my garden, but not like the ones you photographed with the yellow. I can’t wait to go visit there someday when we finally live in Panama.
There is a place in Volcan that raises Heliconias and has a sale every year. http://www.heliconiagarden.com/ventas/ I haven’t gone because I’m afraid I would get in SO much trouble and buy everything! Heliconias are my favorite flower too, and this is a great place to grow them.
