Limon Flower Festival

panama limon campana flores papo

Limon is perhaps the most picturesque community in The Republic of Panama, thanks to its stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and the mountain ranges that include Panama’s first national park, Altos de Campana.

Around 90% of Limon’s residents share a common vocation: the cultivation of flowers, along with ornamental and medicinal plants. Once per year, the town’s people jointly prepare a joyous festival that showcases hundreds of varieties of flowers, plants and baby trees, along with music, dance, food and handicrafts.

Limon is paradise on Earth. It is ideally situated less than an hour from the central hub of the Americas, and just three minutes from the highway that connects every country in North and Central America. Limon enjoys spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and of the majestic mountains that surround Panama’s First National Park. At 500meters (1,600 feet) above sea level, Limon receives a fresh breeze year-round, making it the most comfortable place in the entire region. Limon provides perfect living conditions for humans, and nearly every kind of plant and animal. In fact, several hundred varieties of birds either live here or visit frequently, including some of the rarest Eagles and Toucans, which are a testament to the purity of the surroundings.  Yet Limon is smack in the middle of the country with easy access to the city, the beaches, resorts, shopping and more. Limon is just 15 minutes from the closest beach, and there is a veritable smorgus board of beaches to choose from, literally more than fifteen choices within a one-hour drive. True beach lovers will appreciate having such easy access to such a wide variety of beaches (with any colour sand, and any size of wave) without having to live 24/7 in the scorching heat and salty-humidity that beach-dwellers frequently complain of… the salt in the air destroys their appliances, plus the sand gets all over the home, not to mention the sand-flies… it is decidedly better to visit the beach as often as desired then return home to a comfortable, fresh climate with glorious views.

Limon is Panama’s best-kept secret. Other mountain towns with a similar climate but much further from the City and Beaches have been developed long ago. Amazingly, the closest mountain to Panama City is the last one to be developed. Yes, we have saved the best for last. This mountain may not be the coldest but it is definitely the coolest. It will soon be known by the destinations that are being developed right now: castles, hotels, spas and luxury homes to name just a few of the projects under way.

Windsor-Detroit

Detroit Skyline (viewed from Windsor)

Windsor-Detroit is the busiest border crossing in North America, thus Windsor is Canada’s primary gateway to the United States. In fact, Windsor was originally called South Detroit, as it lies on the South side of the Detroit River. The name “Detroit” comes from the French and literally means “of the straight” or “on the river”. Even with strict border controls, it seems impossible to separate these two cities, which function together like Yin and Yang as opposed to identical twins. Both cities have a prominent manufacturing sector, thanks to the invention of Henry Ford. Windsor factories produce a large portion of the parts for all three major Amercian brands of automobiles. Windsor is the home of the most successful casino in North America, and so many Detroiters enjoyed it that Detroit followed with three of its own casinos. Detroit certainly has the nicer skyline, which is ideally enjoyed from the Windsor side, hence the photo of our American counterpart is one of the most recognizable images for Windsorites.
