We Went from Coast to Highlands

We want to experience it all…

We wanted to explore a 3-week vacation for the two of us, and since we had pleasant experiences with Anywhere for our previous trips to Costa Rica and Belize, planning this getaway was a no-brainer. We wanted to travel the country, explore 5 or 6 areas, and stay at least 3-nights each to experience them in full.

From nature to coffee — the best we’ve ever had…

Harold pulled off the trip perfectly. We started with Panama City and traveled around the country until we made it back to Isla Contadora. We had a nice pace and really enjoyed all the different natural environments each destination had to offer. At Boquete Tree Trek, we participated in a Coffee Cupping tour, and it was the best coffee tour and tasting that we have ever done.

One place I’ll always remember…

One of the places I remember fondly was El Valle de Anton. It's nestled into the valley in Central Panama. At Hotel Valle Verde, we upgraded to a suite which was very roomy and a nice view from the balcony. There were lovely gardens and a pool area which we were not expecting.
