    The Coffee Estate Inn - A Garden Paradise In Boquete, Panama


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     SherpaKeith says being at the Coffee Estate Inn was like being in the Garden of Eden. 'Pretty much everywhere you looked on the property and in the surrounding countryside was green and lush,' he said. One of the coolest things he saw while visiting Panama was being able to see the blooming of the Stanhopea Wardii orchid because it only happens once a year.

    I'd been hearing about how stunningly beautiful Boquete, Panama is for over a decade, and my girlfriend and I finally made it there. We stayed at The Coffee Estate Inn which was built by a Canadian couple, Jane and Barry, 18 years ago. As you can easily tell by walking around the property they are passionate gardeners. This must be one of the finest small hotels (only 3 rooms) surrouned by lush gardens in the entire world. As you walk around the trails of the property you literally feel like you are in the Garden of Eden. And the surrounding areas of Boquete which are easily explored from the hotel are likewise full of Mother Nature's eye candy.
