  • Tree trekking

Nested in the slopes of the majestic Baru Volcano (Panama’s highest point at some 10,000 feet above sea level), Boquete offers many faces for the discerning traveler. Reaching the pinnacle of the Volcano can be an exhausting activity, but when you get to see both the Pacific and the Caribbean at the same time, you know it was worth your while.


Coffee plantation tours are among the preferred activities: our coffee production is renowned among connoisseurs as one of the best in the world. Such tours often include the required field trip to the plantations and beneficios (the factories where coffee is processed), but also may include coffee tastings guided by the expert Boqueteño growers.

Birdwatching takes place in the quiet Quetzales Trail and the surrounding mountains. If some luck assists you, maybe you can spot the elusive quetzal.

Boquete is just hours away from interesting beaches and island activities:  The Caribbean Sea  is some 4-5 hours from Boquete, and the Pacific is just 1-2 hours away. You can do island tours, sea kayaking, or just lay back in a desert island that you can reclaim for yourself for a day.

The province of Chiriqui has also been the center of attention to the sports of river kayaking and river rafting. The rivers of the area can give you that extra dose of adrenaline, if that is what you seek!
