We are real close to Panama! The hassle free border crossing at Rio Sireno makes a day trip or excursion to the Chirique province of Panama simple.
From the border, you can be in Volcan by taxi or bus in 1 hour over beautiful roads where you can visit Cerro Punta and the National Park. In Volcan, Jansen’s Coffee Plantation has interesting tours of the farm where you can see how coffee is produced and processed. They also have coffee for sale which we highly recommend.
For orchid lovers, there is a orchid research station, Finca Dracula about 45 minutes away from Volcan. We have completed the tour twice and were amazed at the variety of orchids.
