Perfect adventure in paradise
"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 will be leaving in the morning after a 10 day stay in this beautiful home. All u need is pack your clothes and do your grocery shopping when you get here. The house is spacious and very well maintained. Immaculately clean. Friendly neighbors. Now the best part the pool/hot tub and lanai it's completely private fenced all around we felt like it was our little oasis debated everyday whether to go to the beach or stay at the pool. Beaches are close by short drive Vanderbilt beach but the parking to the beach is a hike! We went to the state park beach parking is fairly close you can rent lounge chairs umbrella they have bathrooms showers and concession. They charge by the car inexpensive. Piero thank you for sharing your beautiful home at a very reasonable rate. It was very good therapy for the reason we needed to get away. I would highly recommend this home to anyone. And plan on returning again."

"We had a wonderful time! This condo has absolutely everything you could possibly want with so many personal touches. It is clean, comfortable, spacious and located near all major attractions. This was our second time staying in this condo and we enjoyed it so much! The owner is so friendly, courteous and responsive to questions. We will definitely return!"
