Four of us went on the Agua Tour. Everyone had a great time. It was the perfect way to spend the day. We spent the day swinging from rope vines and hopping off rock ledges into beautiful water. There was a hot springs section too. Restuarnte Melissa's (I think that's the name) was included with our guide price and was... More

Just finished the three hour coffee tour. Wonderful organic plantation. Coffee was fantastic. Even my husband enjoyed the coffee and he is not a coffee drinker. Thank you William and Felix for the fun.

Half day hike with William to White Rock. William was VERY VERY knowledgeable about the trail, the animals, the plants we encountered on our walk. He has great eyes and can see things in the rainforest I would never have observed on my own. William also provided us with local history and context for the Boquete area. Had we had... More

We had a really great time exploring Titos coffee farm in Boquete today. Staff could not have been more down to earth and helpful, we went away feeling really positive about the whole experience.

I've had quite a few tours with Explora Ya, and every single one has lived up to my expectations. I especially recommend the horseback riding, mini canyons and the Jöguäta waterfall (where you can jump from the top of the waterfall). Oscar, and the rest of the team working at Explora Ya, are all super friendly, and helpful! I'm very... More

My wife and I toured Don Tito's plantation at Finca La Milagrosa this past July and have been reformed coffee drinkers ever since--especially considering the fact that we discarded our clothing and packed nothing but coffee to bring home. The tour via Explora Ya was exceptional, educational and informative. Williams our guide was remarkable, patiently explaining the ins and outs... More

We took the hot spring/river tour. David was an excellent guide; he's very knowledgeable and respects wildlife. The springs are on a farm that has some cool animals, including a rescued monkey. The springs themselves are little rock pools and they're really hot! It would be best if you have water shoes because the walk between the springs and the... More
