  • Our stay at the River Inn in Alto Boquete

    "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."

  • Felt right at home.

    "We loved our stay at Casa Valhalla! The 3 bedroom unit is roomy and comfortable. The kitchen and baths are new and modern. The beds were comfortable and we slept better than we had in months. The back yard is a beautiful place to enjoy playing with your kids. The house is in a great location between town and hiking trails. It was so nice to feel like we were at home instead of in a hotel or hostel. I say book it while you can!"

  • A (paradise) home away from home!

    "Myself and two friends were making our way across Panama. In the middle of our trip, we were treated with our stay at Bob and Ann's place here in Boca Chica. It was perfectly timed to give us a few relaxing nights in paradise. They have thought of everything to make it extremely accommodating for their guests. Also, I can say (and did when we arrived), the pictures truly don't do it justice. The views are breathtaking, the property is immaculate, and it truly lives up to the hype of a paradise retreat. Hope to come back again!"

  • Oasis in a Jungle

    "We spent a month this past June 2014 in Panama, and we stayed at El Rio Encantado. We arrived late in the afternoon and Frank, the owner, showed us the way to our cabin, which was cottage 2 where we stayed for the first two weeks, then we moved to cottage 3 for another two weeks and on our last day, we stayed at the guest house. There are 3 cottages, a Guest House, the owner's house and a beautiful tree house (Frank's pride) under construction, which when finished, will have a zip line to cross the river. All cottages were clean and well-equipped. The Guest House is the smallest of all the units. This property is located on the road to Caldera and the river of the same name runs through it. Frank did a good job turning Rio Encantado into a civilized jungle complete with electric gate at the entrance, private roads, lit up pathways and stairs, a big swimming pool and manicured gardens turning a rugged terrain of land, river, waterfall and swimming holes into a designer jungle. What is amazing is that depending on where you are within this property, you can experience different micro climates. Frank's house and the Guest House sit at the entrance of the property with a lookout overlooking his resort and the swimming pool below. The climate there is warm and dry as it is at the highest point in the property. The climate in cottage 2 is warm and humid as it sits half way down the valley and it is under a dense canopy of trees. Cottage 3 is all the way down on the river, the climate there is dry and fresh as the sun comes through the foliage together with a gentle breeze. We were lucky we got to stay in different cottages except for cottage 1 and experienced these subtle but different micro climates, all within walking distance of each other but far enough to allow for privacy. The place was an oasis after a busy day out in town. Frank invited us for dinner in various occasion; once for BBQ hamburgers, the meat was good but the bread was burned. Later on, we learned that he never cooks because he doesn't know how to. So we thank you Frank for trying. On our last day, Frank invited us for a wonderful three course dinner prepared by Pablo, who is Frank's personal chef. Frank and his staff ( Jose and Rebecca) are excellent hosts. We enjoyed our stay and their hospitality. We would definitely recommend Rio Encantado to our friends."
