Top 5 Things To Do You Can’t Miss During Your Boquete Vacation

Posted by |


Known for its coffee, hiking trails, rainbows, mountains and "eternal spring" climate, Boquete is where you go to be one with nature. Surrounded by lush greenery with the sound of birds chirping and the smell of flowers blooming, Boquete is enchanting in every way.

2017 is for spending more time outside! 🌲 🐵 🌞 🌬 🌈

This quaint mountain town was first settled by indigenous Ngöbe-Bugle people thousands of years ago and artifacts are still found in farmer’s fields to this day. It’s now also a favorite amongst snowbirds, those looking to relocate in the tropics in a fresh mountain climate, and adventure-seekers alike. If you’re making your way to Boquete, here are the things you must do and see:

5. Enjoy the Food

Boquete provides everything from cheap street food to fine dining experiences (click here for a complete list of restaurants). I like eating lunch at El Sabroson for no more than $3 a meal for a wide variety of local Panamanian dishes. Later in the day, happy hour at Mike’s Global Grill from 4 - 7 p.m. is the perfect place to unwind and chat with the locals. However, one of my favorite parts of Boquete is the endless number of bakeries! One that you cannot miss for a mouth-watering dessert is Sugar & Spice Bakery. There, everything from chocolate chip cookies to delicately buttered croissants fill the air with heavenly aromas. The prices are a splurge compared to the local bakeries, but Sugar & Spice provides a great variety of freshly baked goods and cozy atmosphere that make you feel like you’re in your grandmothers kitchen.

In case you need any further culinary inspiration, we've already covered a couple of Boquete dining experiences here:

4. Swim in the Lost Waterfalls

Take a hike to the three waterfalls within the Falling Waters Nature Reserve via the breathtaking three-hour trail forest trail. The trail retraces the steps of the Pre-Columbus indigenous communities that ventured deep into the forest to pan for gold in the river and extracted the red clay to make pottery. Hidden by a canvas of trees so tall and thick that a path through them is scarcely visible and enveloped in lush mountains painted every conceivable shade of green, each waterfall is breathtaking- and more exciting than the last. Bring a bathing suit because you will surely be sweaty and dirty enough to take a leap into the icy cold waters to cool off!

3. Visit a Coffee Finca and Try Geisha Coffee

Be the ruler of your own life!

Panama’s coffee- specifically the kind grown in Boquete- is considered some of the best in the world. The mountainside is dotted with coffee farms, large and small which you can tour to learn more about the process from bean to cup. A personal favorite of mine is Sr. Tito’s small and quirky 5-hectare farm called Finca La Milagrosa. This farm produces 100% organic specialty coffee, including the famous Geisha coffee- a brand of specialty coffee prized for its delicate tea-like smooth taste and hefty price-tag ($9+ for a small cup). The process for going from coffee bean to coffee mug is laborious. It requires harvesting, drying, and processing before a single bean can be roasted. This fact that this entire process is organic, and that the coffee is grown under perfect conditions is what distinguishes a cup of coffee from Panama from Starbucks or Nescafe. The best part of the tour, however, is when the beans are roasted right in front of you so that you can try a cup of the very coffee that you’ve learned so much about!

2. Catch the Sunrise Atop Volcan Barú

2017 = LIVE, TRAVEL AND LEARN!!!

You certainly cannot leave Boquete without hiking to the summit of Volcan Barú. At 3,474 meters (11,398 feet), the active volcano is the highest point in Panama. It is also one of the few places in the world where you can see both the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea at the same time. Many people choose to start climbing around midnight and reach the summit in time to catch the sunrise. Another option is to make the 6-hour hike in the morning, returning to Boquete before dusk. The most adventurous hikers choose to climb in the afternoon to enjoy the sunset, camp at the top, and then catch the sunrise in the morning. How ever you choose to make the hike, make sure to dress for cold temperatures, hire a local guide to show you the way, and stop to take in the beauty of nature along the way!

1. Go Whitewater Rafting

With so many pristine rivers nearby, Boquete is fun for experienced rafters and novices alike. Newbies and families with young children can enjoy the tamer Esti River or the Gariche River, while thrillseekers will love the challenging rapids of the Chiriquí Viejo River. Although parts of this river have now been dammed, the parts that remain untouched will still provide you with the experience of a lifetime! As you float by, keep an eye out for elusive spider monkeys, otters and rare species of birds in the lush tropical rainforest. Along the journey, take the time to admire the breathtaking waterfalls pouring into the river. Rafting tours usually last the full day and require a minimum number of people accompanied by a professional guide.
