Volcan Baru:I will definitely make another trip to Panama, and when I go I will definitely go back to Boquete, and when I get there I will definitely do another hike up Volcan Baru. That hike was by far the best experience I had during my two weeks in Panama, but I will let you browse my Volcan Baru journal for more information on that highlight, and focus on the other reasons to make Boquete a must-see in Panama....Read More

Where It Is: When you get off the bus from David, head towards the yellow bridge spanning the Rio Caldera and turn left just before crossing the bridge. Hostal Boquete is on your right about a block down.The owner of this quiet Hostal speaks English and is very friendly (he also lives in the upstairs room in the front).

The potatoes were a little bland, but a few shakes of salt fixed that. The veggies were of course kille...Read More

Setting It Up: While hiking the Mono trail, I ran into a couple from New York (T.J. and Bonnie) and the three of us decided that we would go white-water rafting together. When we got back to town and went to Panama Rafters to get signed up. As it turned out, there was another couple from Durango, Colorado who were signed up to go rafting, so we had a full boat.Panama Rafters is within walking distance of the main town square, located next to Java Juice on Main street. We got sized for the water shoes and helmets, paid the $90, and signed the "I won't sue if I die" forms. We were told to bring sun-screen, a hat, some dry clothes, water, and our passport/ID.
