We hiked to the waterfalls with our guide Williams Hammeth. Williams was a great guide. He shared a wealth of information about the flora and fauna of the area. He is passionate about his work and the environment. I recommend you request his services if you visit the Boquette area.

We took two tours with Explora Ya during our stay in Boquete - a coffee tour and a waterfall hike. Both were generally good, and our guide Jose was very friendly and knowledgeable. Prices felt a bit high, even after a bit of negotiating (we had a large group) and an off-season discount, but seemed to be in line with... More

We visited the Coffee Tour and did the Mini-Canyoing. Both tours are very nice. Even though I am not a fan of things like Coffee tours, I really recommend doing it. It was VERY interesting and the guide explained everything very well. Couldn't imagine it better. Do it! The mini canyoing tour was nice too. It's not too much of... More

We went on a day tour with Explora Ya and it was a wonderful experience. From Boquete 26 people boarded 3 vans and headed to Boca Chica where we transferred to three boats to go whale watching and go spend a wonderful day on an island with a great beach. We swam, we snorkeled and, yes, we did see whales.... More

We visited the Finca La Milagrosa coffee farm and had a great time with tour guide José. Got to see the different coffee plants and the production facilities (buzzword: MacGyver) and tasted some of the coffee. You can also buy some. Even though we had visited a coffee farm before in Costa Rica, we still learned new stuff.
