El Valle, Panama

Panama is the new up and coming vacation spot. I want to show you a little bit of Panama over the next few days. We went zip lining down in the Valley (El Valle) in Spanish. The scenery was beautiful but the winding roads were nauseating...for me anyway.

After a long and winding drive from Playa Blanca we stopped at a local market to shop and then headed to the zip lining place. we are all geared up and ready to zip!

It was mine and my families first time to zip line. There couldn't have been a more beautiful place to do it. Notice the water fall in the back ground?

We are not fond of heights so needless to say we conquered our fear!

We were all having so much fun and were so excited and anxious, we didn't care that we looked like buffoons in these lovely helmets and work gloves!

To reward ourselves we decided to have a nice lunch in El Valle. This was, I think my favorite part of the trip...

The Lourdes House Restaurant was absolutely gorgeous. 

We ate outside. This was the view from our table.

We were a group of 15 people plus our tour guide/vacation house owner and 2 vans. 

Fresh flowers on every table, beautiful chargers and dishes.

This restaurant plays host to many weddings.

The signature dessert, "El Heart Attack".

Brownies, ice cream, chocolate sauce and nuts, yummy!

Next to the restaurant on acres of property, surrounded by mountains, sits beautiful hotel rooms, and a pub. 

Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed it!
