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.

Wonderful, peaceful and lovely cabins and grounds

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Boquete River Inn for a week in February. Can't say enough about the place -- the views from the cabin were phenomenal. The cabin itself was spacious and in great shape. The grounds are truly lovely and the pool very refreshing on a hot day. Ken was a wonderful host. The property is not right in the town of Boquete - which we found to be an advantage. The weather at this property is actually better than in town, and although the town is certainly nice, we were much happier being outside of it. We had a car, but others staying in the cabins didn't and found taking the bus easy and convenient. If you are thinking about Boquete - definitely think about the River Inn

Home away from home

We were very comfortable here with our family. The grounds and the views are beautiful and the pool is clean and cool. A ride into Boquete will cost about $7. Ken is a great guy and we felt right at home.

Peaceful and relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

We really loved our stay at Boquete River Inn! The setting in the river valley is beautiful and the grounds were spacious. As we were travelling with our dog, we really appreciated having a safe area where he could run free. The huge pool was a nice bonus that we took advantage of nearly everyday of our stay.

Everything was clean and well kept and Ken was friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend.

Our stay at the River Inn in Alto Boquete

  • 5 of 5

it was a great time at the River Inn. The cabins are really beautifull. It´s a very big, clean and quiet area. The pool is big and there is also a gym. Ken is an attentive and very very nice host. If we will come back to Boquete we will stay there again.

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.

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.
