A small town nestled along the Caldera River, Boquete offers visitors access to some amazing outdoor experiences. From visiting Baru Volcano National Park, to exploring traditional coffee plantations, this particular region really does have a lot of local color as well as nature-inspired adventure going for it.

Perhaps one of the most popular times for travelers to flock to Boquete is during the Festival of Flowers and Coffee—the streets are awash in colorful costumes, music and stunning floral displays.
  • BARU VOLCANO

    The tallest peak in Panama, the Baru volcano is an active one. Those able to summit the volcano can see both the Pacific and Caribbean—the views ever expansive. Part of a national park, the volcano and surrounding area is home to over 250 species of birds.

  • RUIZ COFFEE PLANTATION

    You can’t come to Boquete without experiencing the town’s distinctive coffee culture. The Ruiz plantation offers tours and tastings and is certainly worth a visit.

  • WHITE WATER RAFTING

    The Caldera River presents some pretty exciting rapids. For the more experienced rafter, this river features a few steep inclines that definitely equate to adventure. Most spend a half day on the Caldera enjoying the water and of course the rafting.
