A verdant mountain paradise, Boquete a prized destination. Lush rainforest, filled with flowers, fruits and the sounds of wildlife; rivers, rainbows and rock beds; coffee farms and creeks: the list goes on. Our prime picks for Boquete hotels incorporate these magnificent and healthy surroundings, whether deep in the cloud forest, flush to the resident Barú Volcano or a pedal away from the town’s center.

Panama City residents and a growing number of baby boomers have sought out Boquete for its cool temperatures, quaint nature and rich highlands, both for short retreats and as a thriving retirement location for foreigners. The result has been a harmonious community of locals and expats that work together to make Boquete a great place to live, one of the best in Panama. Boquete hotels, along with its service and activities, are a reflection of this group effort, fueled by the area’s natural and holistic beauty.

Relaxed and intimate, hotels cater to these year-round spring temperatures. Leave your balcony doors open to enjoy a soft breeze as you sip on locally-made coffee on two adirondack chairs. Dine alfresco on local ingredients to the sounds of the rushing, trout-filled streams and zipping hummingbirds. Snuggle up with a good glass of wine to a luxurious stone fireplace. On a chilly mountain night, a six-man jacuzzi can be just the ticket, as you take in the starlit sky and completely detoxify.

For those truly longing for a cleansing escape, Los Quetzales Ecolodge offers a unique experience.

Soak in the scenery and wildlife: these chalets deep in the cloud forest are famous in the birding world, with opportunities to see the cherished resplendent quetzal, the Western Hemisphere’s most beautiful bird.

Charming boutique hotels located close the town center have a New England B&B touch: handsomely furnished guestrooms, Victorian charm and cute gardens. Pedal around to pick up the local bilingual paper, hot pastry and fresh flowers: a stroll around Boquete is as pleasant as you imagine it.
