El Explorador in Boquete, Panama

Wednesday I went to Boquete to see Holly and Emma, a couple blogging friends. There is a related post HERE. Our stop at El Explorador was so interesting however, that it deserves a post of its own.

I’m not sure how one would describe El Explorador – a botanical garden? a playground? an inspirational place? all of the above? It is definitely unique. I wish I had learned the name of the lady it belongs to. She was so delightful! She told me that she has been there 50 years. She just loves working outside, and she has made the place what it is for everyone’s enjoyment. She is very happy when people visit and have a good time.

There are 28 pictures, and then 11 flower pictures in a slide show.

Please correct any errors I may have made in the translations!

There were a lot of beautiful flowers so I couldn’t resist taking some photos of my favorites.

That’s just a taste of this unique place. It should be even more beautiful after the rains return. If any of you have a chance to visit, I would highly recommend it!

    Kris got some great shots of this magical place, El Exlorador! We really had a great time just wondering around, time flew by and we felt like we had found a hidden treasure! What a perfect distraction and a place I will be taking many others in the future!

    Hi Kris. Just curious. Having just started conversational Spanish, I’m impressed with the translations. I can pick out words but cannot put together a sentence…Yet. Are you that far along?


    • Google translation is a good thing!
      And yes, I can make sentences. Most of my friends speak only Spanish so I can speak well enough to have conversations, though I still have a lot to learn to consider myself fluent.

        Thanks in fact I’ve copied the one sign down to study a bit. I’ve concluded at my age I’ll never be fluent but conversing is the key. Muchas gracious. David. I’m mean one month! Come on, cut me a break! haha.


        • If you know enough to get things done and make small talk, you’ll be fine. The locals really appreciate that you are trying and will do whatever they can to help you. I’m not fluent either and always carry my dictionary, but the more you listen and talk the better it gets.
