This is a beautiful and quiet place to stay. Unfortunately, due to our travel schedule, we were only able to spend one night in the Great Tinamou Cottage. The cottage is very large, clean and has a great view from the balcony. Hans and Terry were great hosts. We arranged the transfer/tour from Boquete to Almirante with Hans. It was... More

We stayed in the Great Tinamou Cottage, which is set in the woods. It is isolated, quiet and peaceful. The only visitors are the hummingbirds and occasionally Hans and Terry's two dogs. The place has everything one needs for a stay in Boquete. It is spacious, has a good, large and comfortable bed, a well-equipped kitchen, a decent bathroom and... More

This was our first visit to the Boquete region and we could not have chosen a better place to stay! Hans and Terry were excellent hosts, there when you needed them but always allowed for the privacy afforded by the layout of their cottages. We had the Great Tinamou for 4 nights and wished we had booked it for longer.... More

Terry and Hans are lovely hosts. We had the Great Tinamou Cottage for 4 nights. We flew into David and rented a car from the airport, then drove the 45 mins to the lodge. We got lost and Hans kindly found us and we followed him back to the cottage. It is out of town and I would highly recommend... More

We had such a great time. Let me start off by saying that I'm giving 5 stars based on an amazing experience. If you are looking for a luxury resort, this is NOT for you. But if you can deal with a few bugs and iffy wifi, you'll have a great time. Hanz and Terri have an awesome thing going.... More

This review is very long overdue. We stayed here in December of 2013 and hope to return again one day to share this place with friends and family. We stayed in Little Tinamou and it was perfect for us! The shower was the absolute best shower I've ever had in a jungle! The kitchen proved very useful when we were... More

We stayed for three nights at the Little Tinamou Cottage and it was the best part of our trip! The cabin was beautiful and comfortable. I think that was the best sleep I have ever had, tucked snugly into the mountainside listening to the jungle sounds. Hans and Terry are wonderful, and they leave breakfast for you every morning. They... More

The Highland Tinamou Cottage provided a comfortable stay for four nights for our family. The cottage is clean and comfortable. The decorative lamps in each room provide warm lighting. Beds were firm with good linens and comforters. Wifi was spotty at best but not our priority. The patio, frequented by hummingbirds, was a refuge as we recovered from some ailments.... More

We stayed for 10 nights in April with our young daughter and could not say enough about Tinamou Cottages. The cottage was absolutely wonderful and had everything we needed. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast basket each morning and the lovely notes from Terry describing the coffee of the day. It was hard to pull ourselves away from the patio every... More

We can't say enough good things about our stay at Tinamou Cottages just outside of Boquete for three nights in February, 2014. Our rustic but well-appointed cottage (including full kitchen) was nestled in the woods, with a large covered porch from which we had great views, excellent bird watching, and a cozy spot to relax. Hans and Terry made us... More
