Perched in the serene hills of El Santuario, Boquete, just 6km from downtown, the hotel is a great base from which to explore the region. Partake in the many activities available from white water rafting and the thrilling canopy zip line to coffee tours or relaxing spa treatments.
With the popularity of specialty coffee and the fact that Geisha coffee from Boquete is perennially ranked as some of the best in the world (and the most expensive), you could say that Boquete is to coffee as the Bordeaux region of France is to wine. For the past 3 years, Panama's coffee has been ranked as the best in the world, so when visiting Boquete you really should visit a coffee plantation and see what the fuss is all about. Prepare to taste some of the best mountain grown coffee to be found anywhere.
There are several options when it comes to visiting these world class coffee producers who provided you with an insight into this different world; allowing you to see their farms, processing plants, the roasting plant and finally - their tasting facilities. Café Ruiz offers their tour at their coffee farm in Palmira, Kotowa Coffee is located in the Palo Alto region and the Café Suárez and Finca Lérida farms are up at Alto Quiel.
At any of the coffee tours in Boquete, you will see the complete coffee process; from planting the trees, how the berries grow and are picked through to tasting freshly brewed coffee. The local indigenous people, the Ngöbe Buglé play a very important role as they hand pick the coffee berries at the peak of ripeness. You will also see the different techniques used to allow just the right amount of sun to reach the coffee trees and other organic methods that help protect the environment. At the end of each tour you will have the opportunity to taste these great coffees in a procedure known as cupping - allowing you to sample different roasts and the different flavors.
We can arrange tours with different operators who we know will take very good care of you. Prices range from $25 to $30 per person.
