Let's run down the list on why staying with us would be a better fit than staying at a hotel.

1. It's less expensive.  You are still offered the services and facilities you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay.  Breakfast is also included in your daily rate.

2. Personalized service with individual attention.  We care about your stay with us as we want repeat customers and word of mouth is the best review.  

3. Staying with us gives you an opportunity to live like a local.  We can assist you with recommendations on restaurants, tours, directions, etc.  Who better to give advice and information about the area's attractions than one of its residents?

4. When you stay with us, you are a guest in a more personal atmosphere.  We are more than a service, we're your hosts/friends and are here to share your memories.

5. Having just a small number of guests to look after, we are much more aware of what's going on on our property. This means that B&Bs enjoy a higher level of security, with issues such as theft, a problem for hotels, are almost non-existent.

We started out hosting couch surfers as we enjoyed having guests and helping out someone looking for a place to stay.  Now we would really like to turn our attention to people who enjoy the B&B 'home away from home feel' and for those considering moving to Panama and they in turn can see how we live and be able to talk to us about what could be a huge culture shock.  

On behalf of Don, Andrea, Joan and Ben - We're looking forward to your stay.

 
 
Boquete is known for it's coffee worldwide.  It's hard to find a bad cup of joe here. 

I had no idea what was involved in making coffee before and now honestly it's hard to believe we can purchase it at the price that we do knowing what goes into it.  If you're visiting and want a true tour - which involves going down to the coffee fields, seeing how it's grown (and how each bean/cherry is hand picked!) - off to tour their processing plant and then tasting the different beans...I would recommend Cafe Ruiz tour  http://www.caferuiz-boquete.com/.  There are many other coffee tours to choose from but Cafe Ruiz is my only experience which was very good!  

Another great website is www.boquetecoffee.com  You'll never look at another cup of Folgers the same way again.
 
 
Probably one of the must sees in Panama is Macho de Monte.  It is located about 12 kilometers south of Volcán at the tiny community of Cuesta del Piedra. Go downhill, the turn is unmarked and will be on the left. The road to Macho de Monte is in between Restaurante El Porvenir and Mini Super Meinor.

Less than 3 kilometers, past the guardhouse for the hydroelectric plant and cross two bridges.  Park your vehicle by the ranch on the right.
 
There is a path near the guardhouse that leads down to the river. Ask the guard to point it out.

Here's an exceptional video with spectacular footage.
