This years Flower and Coffee Festival in Boquete lasts from January 12 thru the 22nd. So you still have time to check it out and enjoy the scents and colors of this magnificent affair. The expected visitor count for 2017 is over 300,000 people.
Doors open at 10 with an entrance fee of $2.00 for adults, $1.00 for seniors.
If you want to bypass the crowds each day, go early. Some of the booths are not open until the late afternoon but several of the vendors are open for business early and the flowers look great with the morning dew on them.
If you want more of a festive feel to the experience, show up around 5pm. The crowds start pouring in to find their favorite food stalls and coffee tasting places in addition to the entertainment.
At night the crowds are entertained by native dances and Panama music. The fair goes late into the night for those who love to be out and about at that hour.
The Orchid Fair in Boquete is another wonderful event to consider attending. This year the Orchid Fair is April 7-16th.
