The grounds of the Hacienda are open for guests to wander. We have a small exercise area with a treadmill, stair stepper and weight bench. There are yoga mats in The Breakfast Lounge and we urge you to keep to your normal practice or to start a new routine while enjoying your stay. We have many areas specifically created for reflection surrounded by the extraordinary beauty that abounds in Boquete. There is a mixture of banana plantation, wild jungle and planned garden beds. There are the inevitable suns framing special nooks throughout the property. Colorful concrete benches, comfortable outside furniture, couches, swings and hammocks are discovered as you investigate the grounds. Walk down the colorful steps to the stream area where jungle abundance surrounds you. In certain seasons the small stream becomes a trickle but the path it cuts into the banana jungle is always peaceful and prefect for sharing long conversations, reading that great book or simply sitting in quiet contemplation.
