Fan Sabryna Salazar took the photo with the star in Parque Kennedy En Miraflores, where the pilot looked in good spirits while enjoying a cup of coffee. 

It looks like Peter is definitely recovering from the incident that rattled Bachelor Nation earlier this month.

Peter was reportedly walking on a golf course in Costa Rica with two cocktail glasses in his hand when he suffered a serious facial injury, according to Radar Online.   

'He went to step on the cart but fell and split his face open on two cocktail glasses he was carrying,' a source told Radar. 'He is pulling through.'

He was reportedly driven to a hospital two hours away in order to have surgery performed by a doctor who specialized in his particular injury. 

Peter ultimately received 22 stitches, which have since been removed, according to People.  

Shortly after news of the injury broke, host Chris Harrison assured everyone Peter was doing just fine.

'There's been some wild claims and rumors about Peter today,' he wrote on his Instagram account. 'Peter suffered a freak accident. He got a cut on his head, he did get stitches but he's 100% OK and production is already back underway. He's still the dashing, handsome pilot we've all dreamed of.'

Peter was selected to be the next Bachelor after competing for Hannah Brown's heart on her season of The Bachelorette. 

The Westlake-based star learned he would be the new Bachelor just before he was scheduled to fly a red eye.

'I had to fly a red eye that night from Burbank to Atlanta for my job,' he said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. 'And I was like, "I got to bring this down again, I got to focus." But I was wired for that entire flight. It was crazy!'

Peter will go down in Bachelor Nation history after Hannah revealed they had sex four times during their Fantasy Suite night in Greece.
