Located within the western highlands of Panama, Boquete is a cool alternative to the country’s beaches and islands. Forests, rivers and mountains surround this small town. Travelers can go hiking and bird watching in the Barú Volcano National Park, or sign up for coffee plantation tours. Those looking for adventure may enjoy zip lining or rafting down the Río Chiriquí.
The Riverside Inn offers travelers a relaxing environment from which to explore Boquete. The hotel is set within a wooden house near the banks of the Río Palo Alto. With green grass and a forested backdrop, the setting is lovely and pastoral. The hotel’s small size makes for a pleasant experience.
The rooms are big and classy. Large windows look onto the garden or river and let in a good amount of natural light. The rooms are painted with calming colors and have original works of art decorating the walls. There are both king-size and queen-size beds available, all of which have high-quality mattresses and sheets. All rooms have a private bathroom with a hot water shower (a necessity during the chilly months in Boquete); the master suite even has a Jacuzzi bathtub. Bathrobes come standard, as does a hair dryer. Finally, all rooms have a cable TV, DVD player, stereo, and wireless Internet access.
The hotel’s common areas include a living room with a stone fireplace and a TV room. Both places are good spots to relax and chat with fellow guests. The Riverside Inn also runs the Rock restaurant, which is next door. The restaurant has a large menu that includes delectable items like flank steak, local trout, and vegetarian Thai curry. The Rock’s bar is well stocked with beer, wine, and liquor.
