Caldera Hot Springs, Panama

I know I’m getting really behind on my posting of photos and writeups, but in between Spanish classes (3-4 hours a day), homework and hanging out with Tori, there just has been so little time! But here are some photos from yesterday in the meantime. We went to some hot springs in the town of Caldera, Panama, which is not too far from Boquete, where we’ve been staying for the last week. The owner of the springs really has life good (his property also has a river, ponds, forests, bridges, a bamboo guest house, panoramic mountain views), and yet he was charging just $1 to let us sit in his pozos. Que bueno. Anyhow,

The entrance sign says "please take care of the trees."  Si, se
