Panama’s highest peaks, its only volcano, Baru volcano, and some of its longest rivers are found in the Chiriqui Highlands, a two-hour drive from Panama’s northernmost city, David.

One of the main attractions is the cool climate: a welcome respite from the hot and humid lowlands.

Boquete is the main town with the best accommodation options and is a great base for exploring the area, known for its orange and coffee plantations.


The surrounding countryside is stunning and we can offer a number of superb activities for all tastes such as birdwatching, walking, mountain biking and horse riding excursions as well as trips to the family-run Café Ruiz coffee plantation. For the adventurous, the Chiriqui River offers some of the best white-water rafting in Central America.

If you prefer staying in the peace of the countryside Finca Lerida is a lovely working coffee farm offering simple but comfortable accommodation.
