Boquete Tree Trek Mountain Resort
A rustic mountain lodge offering a good range of outdoor activities.
Boquete Tree Trek Mountain Resort is situated in a national park on a hillside surrounded by tightly packed woodland. It’s a bit of an effort to get there, as the winding access is steep in some places and unpaved, but its lofty location promises panoramic views over the surrounding landscape which do not disappoint.
The accommodation is in cosy wooden Alpine-style cabins which are dotted about the property. There are walking trails from the lodge, and while there are plenty of guided activities on offer in the local area, such as ziplining and horseriding, it is also a great place just to relax. All 13 of the rustic bedrooms have a balcony offering a river, mountain or courtyard view, intermittent Wifi, a TV and private bathroom.
What our clients say
Top experiences in Panama - going through the canal and exploring Panama City and surrounding area. I was surprised to find that Panama is not just the Canal Zone!
We didn't realise the partial canal transit would be in such a big boat with loads of other tourists - not a problem, but would have been good for this to be pointed out in advance.NF, Tunbridge Wells
"Most memorable was watching mother and baby two-toed sloths from bedroom window at Canopy Tower. Early morning on the roof of Canopy Tower listening to howler monkeys as the sun rises over the forest.”NW, Kidlington
Each part of my trip had a special moment. I loved both the new and old parts of Panama city, but my highlight there was seeing sloths while walking up Cerro Ancon. In Bocas del Toro it was being the only person there on a stunning beach. The best moment though has to be staying at the Canopy Tower and experiencing the wildlife. I'll never forget the sound of the Howler monkeys.TF, Wakefield
Because of my interest in shipping, the Panama Canal partial transit was fascinating.JB
Highlights: “Locks on the Panama canal and Panamax vessels up close.”MC, Fulham

Ben Line - Travel Expert
Ben fell in love with Latin America on a six month backpacking trip from Colombia to Mexico in 1995. Since then he has explored most of South America, including living in Peru for a year. He is now Head of Sales.
The incredible birdwatching, coffee tours and soft adventure activities the region is best known for are all offered by Boquete Tree Trek Mountain Resort in their 40-hectare private reserve so staying here was really convenient. The zipline guides were excellent and the gardens teemed with hummingbirds. We were even lucky enough to spot a Resplendent Quetzal from the restaurant veranda!
