Finca Los Monos Jardin Botanico, Bocas del Toro, Panama

I adore botanic gardens, and the one at Bocas del Toro is great. Take a $2 cab right out of town, walk up the hill from the main road, and you’re there. What started as an expat’s private garden now provides two-hour tours that delight the senses. Here are some highlights of the plants and wildlife (frogs, two species of monkeys, and sloths!).

Look at the bi-directional recurved spines on these fronds!

This flower looks like it's reaching out to pinch you

View from the little gazebo where events can be held - lovely!
