Recommended: A TOUR OF REPROSA’S FACTORY AND HANDICRAFT SHOW ROOM

TAKE A REPROSA FACTORY AND HANDICRAFT SHOW ROOM 

When if comes to a unique and beautiful gift that showcase’s Panama’s culture, history and natural beauty- most everyone goes to the REPROSA’s stores- the  one in downtown Panama City and one in Casco Viejo. In addition to their unique jewelry, REPROSA  is the place to find the finest tagua, carabola carvings and Embera baskets .

Now you can enjoy REPROSA another way.  Treasures of Panama Tour at the REPROSA award-winning factory, just minutes away from the ruins of Panama Viejo.  We just took this tour and loved it. 

An informed guide will demonstrate how the fabulous gold artifacts of Panama’s Museum of Anthropology are reproduced, using virtually the same method as the ancient goldsmiths.

(You can even try your hands at the process!)

 Their showroom also includes some of the best examples of local handicrafts and their reasonably priced jewelry is highly recommended as the “perfect gift” by major guidebooks.

$10 admission includes refreshments and “goodie bag”.

 Tours are daily Monday thru’ Friday at 9.30a.m. and at 2.00p.m.

A Napa Valley style Coffee Farm Tour in Boquete

Boquete offers amazing coffee farm experiences.  We just went with  Boquete Safari Tours on their  a new Three Coffee Estates tour, which perfectly  showcases the Boquete coffee experience. The tour takes you to three very different estate coffee farms to taste three kinds of coffee and experience three uniquely Boquete coffee farms. One farm is a simple one by a humble  farmer who is a kind of local genius, another a more sophisticated farm by a longstanding Panamanian grower and finally a  small totally organic farm run by an American couple who grow and harvest according to the lunar cycles just Latin America’s ancient civilizations have. At each farm you do a professional tasting to savor the different coffees and take short farm tour.  The tour takes you all around upper Boquete and the mountain views and scenary are beautiful. Highly recommended.
