"There is no question that that everyday is a beautiful day in Valle Escondido.
From the first morning when we awoke to the birds chirping and the sun shining to the last night when they set off fireworks just for us as it was out last night - OK apparently there was a wedding happening - it was a wonderful experience.
We spent 5 weeks here and loved every minute. Boquete is a small town so do not expect fancy stores or a lot of tourist things to do. It is a place to just enjoy life and the wonderful surroundings. Everyone is very friendly and it is a very safe place to be if you are at all worried about travelling in Central America.
The casa is comfortable, well equipped with everything you will need to cook your own meals, and the huge patio is furnished with comfortable seating to enjoy the view and birdlife.
It does not get much better than this."

"We stayed in Cottage 1 for 10 days at the end of January into February. The weather was perfect, warm and sunny, with no rain but nice breezes at all times. The cottage had A/C but we never needed it. The location is excellent and is on 90 acres on both sides of a scenic river. It's quiet and safe at Rio Encantado, yet you are only 20 minutes from Boquete for shopping and cultural interactions. The weather in Boquete is cooler, rainy or misty much of the time, and quite windy, so we found Rio Encantado to be just right for us. The cottage was beautifully appointed and well made with an excellent kitchen and a gorgeous hand-built shower. The patio had a direct view of Volcan Baru, and we spent many mornings and evenings watching the changing light, rainbows, and stars above the volcano. The pool at Rio Encantado is stellar, clean, with no smell of chlorine. It's big enough to swim laps, yet has a shallow end where you can relax and sit. Walking paths are throughout the property which is beautifully landscaped with many mature tropical beauties. The owner, Frank, is thoughtful, interesting, and just a fine person who loves Panama and cares about the people and culture. We've stayed in many VRBO homes in other Latin American countries and this place is by far the best. Some days we stayed at Rio Encantado and others we drove up into the mountains to hike and it was all just fabulous. You can't go wrong at this place."

"We loved the place. Its halfway to Downtown Boquete and to David.
A full cabin for ourselves, with a driveway. Very private
I loved the pool and the backyard... with chairs for you to delight on the amazing view!"

"We had 3 couples staying in the home and the layout was perfect for our group. The home is beautifully decorated and all of the bedrooms were very large. We spent a lot of time on the outdoor patio which overlooked the river and had plenty of seating. Although we had a car, you could easily walk to town if you wanted. Valle Escondido is definitely an upscale area and we will definitely stay in this home again on our next visit."
