I stayed with my wife and my parents for three nights and weren't expecting such wonderful views and accommodation. I wish we had stayed longer. We stayed at a one bedroom cabin, with a loft second floor with four extra beds. It also included a full kitchen and a charcoal barbecue. For those who enjoy taking pictures, the cabin's stunning...

A group of six of us stayed for one night on 26th January, 2014. We enjoyed the wonderful views, gardens and hospitality. The owners were most welcoming. We wished we could have stayed longer to go up to the top of the volcano-maybe next time. It was our second trip to Panama and we are sure we will be returning.

We have stayed in Panama many times. The best place by far is the cabanas el parador. The owners are amazing people and very down to earth. Senior Victor helps with everything you might need and the staff are very friendly happy people. The cabanas are clean and have hot water for those who have become accustomed to such things.... More

The property, grounds and location are beautiful and the restaurant there was very convenient. But the inside of our room, the ceiling was unfinished plywood that gave off a smell, the room was so chilly that I couldn't sleep and the curtains in the room were a bit dusty (not good for my allergies). I really want to like this... More

I was with my wife and my son and it was a wonderful and beautiful place. If you want to leave the smoked and noisy city by the peace, the climate, the flowers, the songs of the birds and the most spectacular view of the Baru Volcano, Cabanas El Parador should be your destination place. My wife and my son... More

We stayed at beautiful Boquete in the month of December and we were at Cabanas El Parador for 2 nights. The grounds are very stunning, and the rooms are well kept. You will get a stunning view of the volcano from the bedroom apartment/room. The room had its own mini kitchen. They have their own breakfast cafe which serves some... More

The rooms were spacious and clean. The views were simply breathtaking. The hospitality was stellar!--the owners were so welcoming and kind; they even made phone calls for us to organize our tours/activities. Only a short cab ride ($4) from "downtown", but it was well worth it for the views! Bottom line: there is no better place to stay in Boquete.

The Village of Boquete is lovely but to get a real feel for the mountains of Panama I took the road up the mountain from Boquete Village to Jaramillo Arriba. At the top of the road I found the most amazing place to stay...Cabanas El Parador! Owned by Jose and Griselda, happy transplants from Panama City...this beautiful spot is simply... More

Not only are the views from El Parador spectacular, the ambience is so peaceful and quiet. We awoke every morning to the sight of Baru in the distance and the sound of the morning birds. We made coffee and breakfast in our rooms and eased into the day in peace. Boquete is about a 40 minute walk down a winding... More

Last year while visiting Boquete, I met Griselda and Jose Barcia, owners of El Parador, and knew I had to return with my grandchildren. Today, the dream has come true and my expectations have been exceeded. The casita, the beautiful grounds, the food in the cafe, the service are all exceptional. I look forward to returning each year I return... More
