Volcan Baru

Boquete Outdoor Adventures:

volcanbaru2The dormant volcano called “Volcan Baru” can be seen from anywhere in the town of Boquete. Boquete is at more or less an elevation of 4,000 feet. Volcan Baru tops off at an elevation of 11,000 feet. The climb is a challenging 6-8 hour ordeal but we feel that it is all worth the effort!  The great thing about the view at the top is that you can see both the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean from that elevation. The Volcan Baru can also be accessed via all-terrain vehicles. There are tour operators in town that can assist with either a hike or an ATV climb to the top of the volcano. Here’s one of our favorites:

Boquete Outdoor Adventures:

ZipliningIn our opinion, Boquete has the BEST zip-line in Central America.  The tour guides show you the native plants of the cloud forest as you walk up to the top of the zip line track. You can see the flora and fauna and if you are lucky, you can even see a rainbow! A stream runs right below you as you zip down from one tree to the next! Don’t forget to spend some time hanging out at the lodge!

Coffee Tours

Most of the world famous Panamanian coffee comes from the Boquete and surrounding areas. There are dozens of world class coffee plantations. Many of them offer coffee tours. A visit to Boquete is not complete without visiting at least one of these coffee plantations!  Café Ruiz is only a few doors down from our bed & breakfast.
