The tour guide was so passionate about sharing his passion of the bees of Boquete. He is very knowledgeable about the many honey flavor components - lavender, turmeric, & cinnamon, for example.

A nice tasting of over 12 honey types, some infussions and a very nice guide, who can explain more about bees, and their process. If you like honey, this is the place for you!
