Pamana Adventure: Coffee Country

Are you addicted to daily roasted Coffee and Adventure??

If so, head to the hills:

To the beautiful town of Boquete, Pamana:

And to the Coffee Estate Inn to be exact:

I don't know where to start with this adventure because it was beyond what we could have ever imagined. I really can't recommend the Coffee Estate Inn enough; Jane and Barry, the owners, have truly set up a mountain paradise. You arrive to fresh fruit, flowers, coffee and scones waiting for you in your room:
Here's the view from the porch:

Where you can check out the ridiculous amount of all the flora and fauna on their property:
And I can't begin to tell you about all the butterflies:

And all the exotic plants:
Next, you explore the surrounding area by hiking near the volcano:

To be surrounded by such greenery was amazing:

The best part was the beer and local 'mexican' fare waiting for us at the end:

After all that, you better rest up so you'll be ready for your next adventure. Does Mr. Peep look worried here?

I told him that we were safe since we had helmets, right?

But really, how could he be nervous with views like these:

After a quick hike:

Our zip line adventure began:

Yep, that's me in the pic above.

And if you really want to get a feel for our honeymoon adventure:

Does anyone know what he's saying at the end? Who knows. Hopefully it is PG rated, but I can't be sure.

Despite Mr. Peeps misgivings, we both survived; here he is accepting a certificate of completion to prove it:

Truly, a beautiful adventure:

We followed that adventure with only the BEST 'date night' EVER. The owners come and set the table in your room with fresh flowers from the garden just for you, and they cook you up one ridiculously good meal (sigh, I wish I was there right now):

And if you are lucky you get some coffee liquor made on site:

Don't forget to ask for them to set up in-room massages.

And to have Barry take you on a tour of their 'gentlemans' coffee farm.

Where you get to watch the beans roast:

And at the end they package up the coffee for you to take with you.

But don't fret, you too could have your own piece of paradise:

Next up, we head off to a Caribbean adventure.

How adventurous were you on your honeymoon?
