Just outside Boquete center, our cabins are spread across a 1.5 h (3.84 acre) private, green plateau, 500 m. away from the main highway. Enjoy plenty of space. Relax, take in the views, or wander and enjoy the greenery, and the soothing sound of the Rio Colga rambling below. Amazing 'straight-on' views of Panama's highest point, Volcan Baru. Early a.m. and evening bird-watching. Star-filled skies.

Boquete River Inn features 5 one-level, large cabins, fully equipped for cooking and serving meals. Gas stoves, frost-free refrigerators, microwaves, televisions, toasters and coffee makers. No charge W-Fi. Laundry available.

Cabins feature 2 queen-size beds, one with an orthopedic mattress; the other a very comfortable hide-a-bed sofa. At no extra charge, inflatable mattresses are available, for additional guests. Large bathrooms with HOT water showers. Cars park out of the heat, under attached carport. All cabins handicapped accessible. And, we are pet-friendly.

Off-site, consider a day of white-water rafting, a zip line tree canopy tour, rock climbing, coffee tours, horse-back riding, fishing, or visit the nearby hot springs. The sandy beaches of the deliciously warm Pacific, are just 60 km (40 miles) down the mountain.

WHERE ARE WE?

Boquete River Inn is 29.6 km. (19miles) north of David, the capital of Chiriqui province. Arrive Panama City's Tocumen International Airport.

We knew we had arrived to a paradise

  • 5 of 5
“A True Paraside of Beauty and Peace”
The swimming pool is amazing in between forest and jungle. The central quarters off the pool where Mr. Neal also lives had a beautiful recreational area complete with various pieces of workout equipment. Ken Neal is a visionary and when he first discovered and developed this piece of land starting in 2002 he knew the draw it would have. Ken is a most gracious, wonderful person originally from Canada. We rode with him often into Boquete several times and once into David. He was informative, funny and delightful and always inquired about our needs and comfort. Did we drink the water? Absolutely, and it was wonderful. This was our first time traveling out of the country together as a family and Ken took care of us as though we were his own. After passing many hotels along the freeway on our 8 hour drive from Panama City, then to enter the gates of Boquete River Inn, it took our breath away to see this oasis of beautiful trees and sculpted landscape. We chose to use the taxi service which was VERY reasonable. Ken suggested a certain taxi driver by the name of Ariel and he was spot on for reliability. Ken also loaned us his own cell phone that we just added minutes to, for our convenience. He was truly gracious. Our 15 year old was pleased to have wi-fi of course, but for us... the peace, beauty of the volcano, Vulcan Baru directly in front of us and the night sky filled with sounds of cicada, nocturnal birds, etc. was thrilling. At times heat lightening over the volcano entertained us with magnificent shows. Every couple of days a refreshing downpour in the evening would cool the air and you realized why it's so green and lush. (Very much like the Pacific Northwest where we come from.) This is Panama's winter, so there is more humidity, but the temperature still stays about the same all year long. (Between 78 and 82 degrees F) Boquete is cooler than David and Panama City by far. We experienced that first hand. I have read where some posting their observations about the driveway into the Inn as being too rough. Go slow and steady and you will have no problem. For us it was part of the fun of finding paradise at the end of the road. The price was fantastic. Because it was the slow season and we stayed for 2 weeks we were only charged a minimal cost per day. Thank you, Ken! Boquete is a fabulous place to explore and the food is very cheap and really, really delicious. We got some fantastic bargains there.

Wonderful Stay (almost)

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I loved our stay at the River Inn!! Ken was very accommodating and a gracious host. He is very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. The Casita we were inn was on the edge of the canyon with incredible view across to Volcan Baru. The hole place was very clean and well kept. Now for the almost, I broke my ankle while staying there I was out on a hike. Ken was very helpful, he assisted in getting me back to the property and then drove my wife and I to the Hospital where I had surgery. Ken was very helpful to myself and my wife while I was in the hospital and for the remainder of our stay. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a quiet, peaceful place to stay.

A tranquil oasis away from town

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had the pleasure of staying here for a few days on the tail end of our Panama adventure. We could have stayed longer. The wind, sun, and quiet were the perfect mix for us. The pool was pleasant and perfect for kids. We only wish we had more time to just stay around the cabin and enjoy doing nothing. Nighttime star gazing was spectacular! Our rental car was well used for trips to town for groceries. Our host and his cats were friendly and helpful! We would definitely return!

I didn't want to leave

I didn't want to leave

As soon as I arrived at the Boquete River Inn, I felt like I was home. I stayed in one of the B&B rooms. I had access to a large area just outside my room for exercising and relaxing with a view of the beautiful pool. And Ken made me feel welcome from the moment I arrived until we hugged as I departed. He has a fabulous sound system and let me play my music that I like to exercise to. He also provided some great music while I was there (no one else was in the house to be disturbed).

The views and the open space were glorious. There was no noise except for what we created.

There are a couple of reliable taxi drivers I can recommend to get to and from town, if you do not have a car. Ariel: 6608 2734 and Fernando: 6792 2247. Fernando will also pick you up and take you to the airport in David. He also will take you to other long-distance places. Other taxi's mainly stay local to Boquete.

Peaceful stay! Very relaxing and extremely safe!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at the Boquete River Inn for just over a week. It was extremely relaxing, the owner is very personable and knowledgeable about the area and country. The property is just outside of Boquete town which makes it quiet and peaceful. The other advantage is that is is slightly warmer than staying in town since it's a little lower in altitude. The days are warm and beautiful and nights are cool (which makes it perfect for sleeping). Cab rides into town are fairly cheap and affordable but keep in mind to take a business card with you just in case you forget where you're staying. Also, little tip, many of the locals still refer to this property by it's older name and can sometimes confuse it's new name with another property that is based in town. If you're exploring other parts of the area, a car rental will be needed. And the owner is more than happy to set you up if you come without a vehicle. It honestly, was a great stay. The guests tend to be more mature or with young families. Everyone is respectful of other guests. It's a perfect place to feel at home when so far away from home.

Caution! Keep your valuables close to you

  • 3 of 5
We spent six days at the Boquete River Inn. The cabins and grounds are pretty much as advertised. The view out our door was beautiful. The futon bed was not as comfortable as advertised but I made do. My biggest complaint and warning is that our LOCKED cabin was illegally entered and we had property stolen. I left my Bose headphones in the cabin on our first day there and they were stolen along with a pair of Adidas basketball shorts and a windbreaker. No sign of forced entry and the doors were most definitely locked. We were fortunate that we had decided to take our computers with us. The BRI is off the main road, down a rough unpaved road. A rental car is a must.

No crowds, no traffic, no chaos, only peace. Eight km. before Boquete center, and 250 m. off the main David - Boquete highway, you'll hear nothing other than birds, and the rambling Rio Colga running 100 m. below our property. Your place to relax, play or just kick back.

Enjoy 1 of our 5 cabins spread across 1.5 h. (3.82 acre) green plateau. Soak up the sun around the heated pool, firm up in our small gym, explore trails, both on and off property. Wi-Fi internet throughout. Plenty of birds and butterflies. Nearby coffee tours, adventure expeditions too. Great star-gazing too.
