The Ngöbe Bugles Indians (Guaymí) are also responsible for handpicking the specialty coffee of the region during the months of November through March and indigenous families from all over the province of Chiriqui make there way to Boquete during the harvesting season.
Coincident with the coffee harvest is the Flower Festival.
The gardens of Boquete are rivaled only by the great Mediterranean garden centers of California, Italy, and South Africa. This verdant production is best witnessed at the Festival, but can be seen throughout the year in a variety of contexts.
Bromeliads cover the shade trees on the fincas. Deep flowerbeds adorn the inns. And, rated as one of the top three private gardens in the world, Mi Jardin es Su Jardin is open to visitors who are encouraged to wander the grounds, enjoying the vision and hospitality of the owners.
