Fortunately there are some good near places to do so.
One is a small town called El Valle de Antón. It’s located in the 6 km wide crater of a inactive volcano. It is only 600m above the sea but thats enough to have a cooler temperature than Panama city.
It’s not a place with a wild nightlife, is more a quiet place to meet nature, people goes to do hiking, horse riding and camping but there is a little market where you can buy some souvenirs too. There is also some thermal waters with some mineral properties.
We love to stay in the Hotel Campestre. It’s just a single pavilion building that doesn’t have any amenities but is placed in the best spot of the valley. And for a highly stressed guy like me, this is heaven.
This time Mirai, Melty and Sasara join as.
They were desperate to go out.
We didn’t do many sightseeing this time but we managed to visit the local zoo with Mirai and Melty.
This trip was some weeks ago and it was one of the first times I took courage to photograph the girls in public. It was a fun experience, people get very curious, but what surprised me the most was that the ones who came to ask questions was the guys; They say Mirai looks so real, I think they meant alive.
Mirai posing and posing, she loves to be photographed
this is the smart stand in action, very useful
wife also love to pose and be photographed XD
not like me, I’m too shy
Mirai wants to be in the photo with the iguana, but I didn’t focus well
Mirai makes friends with a Peacock
The zoo is not so big but it has some cute local wild animals, others not so cute and many plant species. Also has nice spots to take photos.
When we got back to the hotel, we found Sasara taking a walk around the yards.
