Travelling north on the Palo Alto loop from Hotel Ladera you will pass a few different hotels and inns. The first road to your right goes up to Jaramillo. This road will take you to La Montaña y el Valle – The Coffee Estate Inn and Los Estbalos B0utique Hotel. Staying on the Palo Alto loop the first hotel on your left is the Riverside Inn Boquete. Just ahead is the Boquete Garden Inn and if continuing on up and about the half way mark you will come to the lovely Hotel Paradise Boquete. Jaramillo is the mountainside you view from Valle Escondido and the Panamonte Hotel.
This beautiful relatively new Boquete Hotel is actually located among the coffee plants of the former president Mireya Moscoso family coffee finca (farm). It’s a bit of a hike form town so you will want to be arriving by car but that distance puts you square in the middle of some of Boquete most beautiful and tranquil surroundings. A word of caution though – this are is very lush and coffee grows abundantly for a very good reason – it rains a lot here. This is on the edge of the rain/cloud forest of the Chirqui Highlands. That said a trip to the highlands is something wonderfully different and if you’re looking for sun and sand you’re in the wrong place! At the Paradise Hotel you will enjoy beautiful views of the jungle forest, coffee farms and even Volcan Baru towering in the distance. The huge glass balconies aid in the experience and feeling of sleeping in this jungle oasis. Of special note are the immaculate rock gardens in which coffee, orange and banana trees are abundant. The garden court yard is a five sense experience with sounds too from the relaxing waterfall to the flowing Chiriqui river and the symphony of sounds accompanying the birds and animals of this area.
Unlimited free coffee and Internet access are also and added convenience.
Boquete Paradise calls itself a hotel but it is another in the popular ’round house’ configuration you will find in and around Boquete. There are four roundhouses each with a two bedroom suite including a full kitchen. These suites can accommodate up to eight people. Breakfast is included while lunch and dinner service is available by special request. There are 12 rooms in total.
