The Coffee Estate Inn
The Coffee Estate Inn
Boquete is situated in the mountains of north western Panama in the province of Chiriqui, 90 kilometres from the Costa Rican border (1½ hours driving) and 450 kilometres from Panama city (6 hours driving). The closest airport is in the city of David, 40 kilometres south of Boquete.
La Montaña y el Valle - The Coffee Estate Inn is situated at 4,200 feet in Jaramillo Arriba. The best way to enjoy your stay with us is to fly from Panama City to David, rent a vehicle and drive up here.Renting a vehicle is the difference between staying in the mountains with us on a private estate and renting a room in town. Taxis are not readily available to come up here at exactly the minute you want one, if ever, as they have more lucrative fares downtown. There are good restaurants downtown and beautiful driving loops and areas to explore. You miss a lot if you don't have your own vehicle.
We are 700 feet above the town of Boquete up a steep road and less than a seven-minute drive from Boquete. We are three kilometres from the centre of town of which 2 1/2 kilometres are newly paved. The last 1/2 kilometre of our road is rock-gravel. Although you can drive up here in any vehicle, a higher clearance (not necessarily 4X4) vehicle with automatic transmission is more comfortable.
The flight from Panama City to David is about an hour and then another hour by vehicle from the David airport to Boquete on an asphalt highway. We provide detailed driving directions.
There are many scenic routes on paved and gravel roads once you are here and it is safe to drive. We provide you with good maps of the area and will explain all of the driving routes. Our guests regularly take advantage of our reservation service to arrange for a smaller higher clearance vehicle from a reliable car rental agency at the David airport.
If you are coming from Bocas del Toro, Costa Rica or elsewhere, there are different transportation options that we can discuss with you at such time as you guarantee your reservation.
