    Horse back riding on the volcano and in the mountain topics and through the coffee farms provide a way to see the country side and meet the people who walk the trails.

    Chiriqui provence is where the food is grown and this is what you will have. Fresh fish, organic fruits and vegetables. No excesses, so a perfect spa town on top of being a perfect place to learn Spanish bar none.

    Favorite Dish: Cerviche and corvina.

    People will play the piano for you, or invite you to dinner.
    For me, it was stepping back into a more pleasant period of time when humans used their own talents to entertain others.

    I received a lot of love here as the hearts are pure and open to humanity in the village, and not yet bought and sold like the outside world. To me, it was a fairyland of my childhood dreams.

    Dress Code: No, just look respectable.

    Luggage and bags: Don't bring anything fancy.
    This is not Manhattan, thank God.
    This is real life in a remote village of human interest to those of us who still have our humanity in tack.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Remember, this is the tropcis. Bring only what can be dried on an outdoors clothe lines. Yes, they still have them there. During rainy season, bring an umbrella.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: It is easy to bring what special items you need, so do it.
    Everything can be purchased, but bringing it will save time.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Plenty of hiking near Costa Rican border and plenty of horseback riding also. Bring shoes that work for you.

    Miscellaneous: Drink water often as it can be dehydrating.
