Day 2

Sunday, April 15, 2018 CHIRIQUI HIGHLANDS – FINCA CERIANA – MOUNT TOTUMAS

This morning you will be transferred to Panama City’s domestic airport to catch a 50-minute flight to David, capital of the Chiriqui province, in western Panama. Chiriqui is the country´s “breadbasket” containing some of the most breathtaking highland scenery in Central America. After arrival to David Airport, you continue for approx. 90 min. to the Western side of the Volcano. Strategically located between the highlands and lowlands of Chiriqui, Finca Ceriana forms part of a privately protected area for the conservation of flora and fauna in the region. One of its unique characteristics is the number of bird species and other animals from the upper and lower mountain areas. The property is part of the biological corridor that hosts the famous volcano lagoons and a large variety of animal and plant species. The total area counts 10 hectares of protected land and nearly 2 kilometers of nature trails, in addition to one of the most beautiful views to Costa Rica's Golfo Dulce, or sweet golf, and Osa pensinsula as well as to Punta Burica in Panama. Once at Finca Ceriana, you will enjoy a nature hike through 3 km of beautiful trails and then you descend to the lower part of the farm, where we will be expecting you for a gourmet picnic under beautiful Cedar trees.

From Finca Ceriana you continue for another 20 kilometers West, and for most part of the journey you will be on a very irregular and rough mountain road which can only be maneuvered by a good 4x4 car until you reach Mount Totumas, the highest eco lodge in Panama at 6,300 feet (1,900 meters). Its mission is to protect and preserve the 400 acres of Mount Totumas Cloud Forest that represent an important buffer zone for the wilderness of La Amistad National Park. Get settled and enjoy a welcome dinner and orientation with Yasmin.
