Boquete cottage description

Enjoy paradise in this darling 'casita' situated on the grounds of one of the most admired private properties in downtown Boquete.

The cozy, comfy and convenient one-room guest cottage sits behind a charming wrought iron gate overlooking a beautiful bubbling stream.

The 'casita' is stocked with mini-fridge, microwave, toaster-oven, electric kettle and coffee maker - the basics for preparing breakfast or a light meal.

Walk to language school, restaurants & cafes, shopping, golf course, eco-touring, transportation! Or just hang out in the hammock, listening to the running stream.

The setting is perfect for a romantic weekend, a week of Spanish language immersion, or a longer visit to explore all of the region.

If you are considering a move to Panama, your hosts would be happy to answer questions and give you some 'insider' tips.

If you wish, you can arrange to take a course in silk painting and polymer clay with Barbara, an artist/teacher.

Mort, owner of Morton's Bakehouse, is a well known artisan baker. You may also wish to take one of Mort's artisan bread baking classes.

We and Maggie, our sweet Labradoodle, look forward to welcoming you as our honored guests.


A brief listing of some local festivals and events:

November - a month of celebrations. Panamanian Independence Day Parades. Local celebrations in Boquete are colorful, fun, with parades of darling school children dressed in beautiful costumes.

December - Christmas and New Years celebrations, parades and displays

January - The International Boquete Flower and Coffee Fair. Music events at night are, regrettably, noisy throughout the entire valley - bring ear plugs! The flowers bloom all season! Generally held the third week in January.

February - World-Class Jazz & Blues on the slopes of Volcan , Feb 5-8, 2015. This is a great event - getting bigger and better each year.

March - Orchid Fair in Boquete - professional and amateur growers vie for gold medals. Generally held end of March, beginning of April at the Fair Grounds.
