Boquete condo description
Your vacation spot is as beautiful as Hawaii at a fraction of the cost! Our condo is located in a hidden valley [Valle Escondido] within a tiny multi-cultural town. You will develop deep sleep patterns during your stay due to the sound of rushing water over rocks just outside your windows. The resort of which our home rests provides a healthy and peaceful environment better known as 'tranquilo' according to the natives. The climate in Boquete is 16-29 C [60-85 fahrenheit] year around. Words cannot explain the beauty of the mountains, wildlife, native people, the town and the overall resort of Valle Escondido.
Many activities are just minutes away! Some examples: take a full day excursion to your private Pacific island with white sandy beaches on both sides. All details are planned out for you via the Boquete Outdoors Adventure. In addition, Boquete Outdoors Adventures offer many other thrilling activities such as whitewater rafting and zip-line tree-trekking for your needs ranging between 30-70 dollars per person depending on the package you select.
Though the tourist activities are fun, we enjoy the small-town simple activities where you can take a 5-minute walk to get a 25 cents ice-cream cone or a pastry and visit the markets where the natives offer a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. Taxis run around a dollar during the day and two dollars at night in the Boquete area. Buses from Boquete to David begin at 5:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. every 20 minutes which cost $1.45 each way. Movies in David are $2.50 per person and the combo popcorn drink snacks range from one to four dollars! Coffee tours cost a couple of dollars per person and Cafe Ruiz offers a free coffee tasting workshop and gives you coffee gifts afterwards FREE! And the gardens....most tours are free and words cannot express the beauty of the birds and the flowers!
We will hook you up with locals (bi-lingual) to help you make the most of your vacation. We will provide our personal contact information should you need us during your stay. We will leave a notebook on the table with explicit information of local restaurants and contacts for your adventures during your stay. Also, you might want to consider investigating on your own the area of Boquete, Panama via the Internet. We are down to earth friendly people who have developed a 'tranquilo' (calm) attitude from living in paradise!

ReviewsWrite a review
We highly recommend this location. The condo is very well situated and convenient to the facilities that Valle Escondido has to offer and a short easy walk into the town of Boquete. The unit had lots of room, was very well equiped and had great views of the river, flora and fauna from the back. For a small fee access to the facilities at Valle Escondido resort, particularly the pool and spa facilities were a bargain. Only one of the three restaurants listed in Valle Escondido was actually open but this was minor as it was very easy to find great food at great prices in Boquete. We typically ate out once a day and then ate other meals at the condo. There are several supermarkets for groceries etc. We spent 2 weeks here and did not rent a car, simply walked everywhere. Explora Ya, a local tour operator provided very informative (ask for Erick as your guide)) local tours at reasonable prices. We took the public bus from Panama City to David and back and found the service to be cheap ($10), comfortable and safe. We will definitely visit Boquete again. The weather was perfect.

We rented this very comfortable unit in the Valle Escondido community from Jan. 9 to Jan. 13. Our communication with owners prior to arrival was lacking a bit, but we felt pretty secure going there. When we arrived we found the unit had not been cleaned after the previous renters. It was not a pretty sight. We were able to contact the owners through the help of neighbors in the community. We had to find a place to stay the first night while the owners got the cleaners lined up for the next day. We were able to move into the unit for the last three nights. Due to this, the owners ( Steve and Joanie ) graciously refunded all of our rent money. Obviously, we were very pleased about that gesture. The condo is very nice and Valle Escondido is a great area. We did not use the facilities of the community but rather used the condo as a base for our excursions in Boquete. Would recommend this condo and would be happy to stay there again.

Everything about our experience was excellent, not a single thing to complain about. The owners are great & easy to work with - Valle Escondido is the best place to stay in Boquete, too. It's safe, gorgeous and great food at the restaurant. Highly recommended over any hotel options in the area, as well.

My wife and I stayed in this condo in Valle Escondido, Boquete, Panama for one week. This was the highlight of our month long vacation exploring Panama. The condo is well appointed and wonderfully located within the storybook setting of the gated community of Valle Escondido. The owner's were very helpful and accommodating to our every concern. You could not find a more beautiful and safe place to stay in this friendly community while you enjoy near perfect year round weather. We will certainly return in the future.

We recently stayed in this wonderful villa and had a very pleasant experience. Joanie and Steve were very easy to work with on arranging the accommodations and making sure we were comfortable. It was like staying with good friends who really cared that we had a great time visiting their special part of the world. Would definitely recommend this accommodation to others.

My family of 5 (3 teenagers/adults) were very pleased with the location and adventures of Panama in our visit. While Boquete is not directly on the beach, this location offers a different atmosphere in central Panama right on the side of dormant volcano with lush rainforests and the climate to go with it (cooler than on the ocean due to the elevation with rain or mist from the mountains). The small town of Boquete is wiithin walking distance with convenient and nominally priced local restaurants. Using a local agency we went hiking, white water rafting, tour of coffee plantation and of course one day on a Pacific island for swimming and snorkeling. The condo was very clean and sizable for our family needs and the resort accomondations were convenient with golf course, health club, etc. The valley is very scenic surronded by mountains and rainforest with even a beautiful little waterfalls on one end of the grounds. And yes, vitrually no pesty bugs. The location being a little remote is away from the tourist traps but also a little more tricky to get to. Definitely recommend flying into David on Air Panama to minimize travel. For beach lovers, this is probably not the place with the Pacific about a hour away and the Gulf side 3-4 hours with some mountain roads. The owners, Joanie and Steve, are absolutely fantastic to talk to to and work with you on your plans, very acccomodating and helpful. We will be sure to go back to Panama again!

I am emailing you to thank you again for renting your condo to us over Christmas. We had a great time! We enjoyed the club house on the grounds and the town of Boquette. The area is very beautiful. We spent most of our time on excursions. Jim was a big help planning these and the kids really enjoyed the white water rafting, and trip to the island. He also gave us some good restaurants to dine at. The people were very friendly and helpful. We left you a thank you ornament for your beautiful christmas tree on the table by the door.

About the owner: We are missionaries here in Boquete feeding both the hearts and stomachs of the Indigenous Indians via Home Church Panama. We have 6 kids in the states so we like to travel back and forth to see them often. We are flexible with any schedules so if you want to come, we will pack our bags to visit our children!
Why the Owner Chose Boquete:
We purchased this location because unlike other subdivisions where the developer sells and leaves the upgrades and such to the homeowners; our owners live here and they continue to add upgrades everyday! Our condo sits in the midsts of a gated community with 24 hour check point of who enters and leaves the hidden valley. This is an active resort of hotels, bungalows, apartments, condos, villas, homes, castles and mansions with owners representing many regions of the world. In addition, the homeowners in Valle Escondido are ones that think outside of the box and have unique successes such as professional ping-pong champs, dancer from the music video 'THRILLER' with Michael Jackson, cancer researcher/author Ty Bollinger, holistic medicine practices, wellness director, inventors, and finally the developers/residents of Valle Escondido LOVE their baby! And the wife/co-owner of VE was Miss Panama before she and her husband made paradise on earth! Nothing passes by their eyes and they are in-tune to the well-being of Valle Escondido and the Boquete area. Wait a minute....I think my husband and I are pretty special too as we work to feed hearts and stomachs of the Indigenous Indians. Yeah, Valle Escondido will be special to you too because during your visit, you will learn a lot from successful people all over the world! The resort spells 'h-e-a-l-t-h' to us! YOU WILL LOVE IT HERE!!!!!! Hawaii at a fraction of the cost!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Some unique benefits you will enjoy while staying at our property is that you can make your vacation packed full with activities at a low cost or you can just putz around the resort and the town at little to no cost. You create your schedule as you go along. Also, medical care does not require appointments so walk into one of the local dentist office and get your teeth cleaned and a thorough check-up for around $20-$30 dollars! Get your blood count checked for seven bucks in downtown Boquete. Affordable massages, pedicures and such right here in Valle Escondido! Oh, and the three restaurants and cantina are very affordable! Vacationing here is like being on a cruise... it is all inclusive! Renting outside of Vale Escondido will cost you more in the long run because you will be penny, nickle, dimed... here you have it ALL for the rental price listed! This is one vacation that you can afford and that you deserve! When you leave, you will feel energized & healthy!
