Boquete Outdoor Adventures planned a number of activities for our family of four (2 children aged 13 and 11) in December 1994. We cannot speak more highly about Amy and how responsive she was putting the options together before our arrival, and the staff themselves we met during our stay in Boquete - second to none.

We used BOA to coordinate some fun stuff over the 4 days we were in Boquete. Staff was easy to work with and very responsive via email. We did a full day trip with Jim to Isla Bolanos outside of Boca Chica for some beach time and snorkeling. Day 2 we rafted the Chiriqui with Papito and his crew, which... More

I appreciated the swift replies on my questions, the possibility to compile a package of different tours and the frequent e-mails with respect to the last news. Ask is John is guiding your tour since he is the best!

My group of four did several outings with BOA over three days in Boquete. Despite the lower river levels (it was towards the end of their dry season), our favorite was the white water rafting. Our guide, Jesus, was able to give us not only a fun ride, but also a lot of interesting info along the way (although he... More

Thank you for your excellent review. We loved having you group in town, and we're happy that we could be part of the "Birthday Celebration" for one of your friends. The rafting, cloud forest hike, and a cangilones canyon visit are always the highlights of everyone's stay here. Highly recommended. Safe travels, -Team BOA More

During our recent visit to Boquete, my husband wanted to climb to the top of Volcan Baru to see both oceans and Costa Rica from the top at sunrise.

The sea kayaking was fantastic, a perfect day, great conditions and wonderful guides. Jim and Amy made for a memorable experience by sharing their knowledge of the area.

Short version: Minus: Lack of communication about low water levels. The company should have informed about low water levels BEFORE the 2-hour-drive! Bad service on the administrative side. Plus: Great guides - focused on safety and fun. Fabulous lunch. Great nature experience. More details: Knowing it was dry season we called in advance to make sure there was enough water... More

We're happy that you had a great trip with our river guides and stated that "in all a great experience". We try to make it clear that it is the end of the dry season, which greatly affects water levels, and you were also here during Holy Week which poses more unforeseen challenges, but we still made your trip happen...

A recommendation from our dear friends, The Grayson's put us in the hands of John Tornbloom who is the best birder in Boquete and probably in Panama.
