Amongst the many attractions of Boquete is the existence of cloud forests. Being a city dweller most of my life, walking into a cloud forest was a fascinating experience. Inside the forest, it was dark, damp, full of bird languages and green, always green in different shades and tones.
Before I continue, I would like to explain what a cloud forest is, if I may. A cloud forest is a mostly tropical or semi-tropical evergreen forest characterized by a low-level and frequent cloud cover at the canopy level. These forests usually show an abundance of mosses covering the ground and vegetation and almost always develop on the saddles of mountains, like the Jaramillo mountains and Volcán Barú in Boquete.
In Boquete, the areas of Bajo Mono, Alto Chiquero, Horqueta and the slopes leading to the Volcán Barú are all considered cloud forests. And, although it can be sunny at times in legitimate cloud forests, you will find all the characteristics of a cloud forest in these areas.
No further talk. It’s time to share with you scenes of a cloud forest in Boquete. Sit down, relax and use your imagination to travel down to Panama and enjoy a forest in the clouds. Here we go.
That’s it for today. My legs are tired and I don’t feel like walking anymore. At least not for today. Tomorrow I’ll take you to a stunning waterfall in the middle of the forest. Please return, I promise you won’t regret it. Total satisfaction or your money back. Good Day.
