It’s 6:45 am and my arm is stretched as far as it can go over my head. I can hear the birds chirping, laughing at me as I attempt to follow the instructions of the smallest, meanest yoga teacher with the cutest accent ever.

Sure, I was able to find a little bit of information in guide books and look at a few pictures on Google, but for the most part what awaited us when we arrived…

The one thing we did know we wanted to do, however, was to take a Boquete coffee tour. Although neither of us are big…
