"My family came to Boqerte to explorer and study Spanish at the school Habla Ya. It was a great experience for my grand-children and all the adults. The restaurants were excellent and the tours of Bees, coffee growing and the zip-line in the Mountains were were all great excursions. We hope to return soon."

"This house is amazing! Perfect location and amazing facilities. The indoor pool is perfect for the rainy evenings or days. The steam room and spa are nice especially after hiking. The kitchen has everything you need to feel at home, and the laundry room is a plus. My favorite spot was the terrace with the view, and the fireplace for the cold evenings. This place was perfect for my family. Venizio and Velkis were super nice and helpful. Craig was super responsive, and all the information provided was on point. There are so many activities to do, that even a week was not enough. Boquete Outdoor Adventures is around the corner, and we highly recommend them. Lerida has a nice tour for outdoor lovers to learn about the birds and plants in the area (ask for Cesar). Beach anyone? We drove to Boca Chica and took a boat taxi to Bolanos Island ($120 roundtrip) for 6 people and they stay with you all day until you are ready to come back. We used Elvis Villalobos +507 6816‑7407 whatsapp. Tree Trek it's awesome, and the kids loved it!!! Forget the Hot springs, but visit the cangilones de Gualaca. The lost three waterfalls trail was challenging, and it did not disappoint. Overall, one of the best rentals we have stayed at on our travels around the world. Thanks for sharing with us Stien family."

"Barbara, Mort & Maggie...what else would a visitor to Bouquete need than these people (and yes, the 4 legged Maggie is a person!). They provided every bit of information one would ever need in the 3 ring binder in the cottage + answered ALL of our questions with knowledge....& no question was too stupid for them to answer! Mort's bakery Rye bread along with butter & Barbara's homemade papaya/pineapple jam was waiting for our late night arrival...amazing.Make sure to partake in her silk scarf painting class (check ahead of time for the schedule) & drive down to Morton's Bakery to buy bread, sandwiches & goodies from Stacey....she made/decorated the wedding cake that was in the movie 'Mystic Pizza'! The property is secure & gorgeous with fresh banana's, papaya's & beautiful flowers all around. In fact, they made beautiful flower arrangements for our cottage!"

"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."
