DUE TO HEAVY RAINFALL, The Medicine Way Trail tour is temporarily closed until necessary repairs on the trail can be completed. Tour Finca Luz, a working organic rainforest medicinal plant and coffee farm in the highlands of Boquete, Panama, where it is always cool and green. Enjoy a 2.5 hour educational, entertaining, delicious tour of a gorgeous cloud forest ecology--from cathedral-like forest to meadow to wetlands to greenhouse...taste, touch, smell and learn about the plants that have thousands of years of healing history...and are being used today by Big Pharma. Finish your tour with organic coffee, herbal lemonade, tropical fruit and our own special goodies. Enjoy the stunning vista out to the Pacific Ocean and towering Volcan Baru. Relax. Breathe. Enjoy.
