Moty is one of the best tour guides I've had- and I've booked alot of tours on TripAdvisor from Thailand to Dubai. I wasn't nervous when there was not alot of info forthcoming about where we'd go- as I had read other reviews saying just sit back and let Moty take over. He picked us up at the airport and was prompt and ready to roll. We wanted to meet his wife Rita who had handled most of the coordination so he stopped at home and she made us a papaya smoothie- I mean really- she did that! Just too sweet. Off we went to learn about coffee (touring a plantation and stopping at a center to learn how to brew the perfect cuppa joe- it looked like a scientific experiment with beakers and bunson burners)... he drove us to Boquete where we saw hanging bridges, rain forest adventures, and the best was riding horses through the forest to stop at hot springs swimming holes. Perfect day from start to finish!! Met tons of locals (he knows EVERYONE) and was the best introduction to Boquete and David ever!!

We came in touch with Moty by asking for a tour to a rum distillery. Moty has contacts throughout Panama and has been able to arrange a private tour to Carta Vieja distillery for us. He recommended going to a sugar cane plantation as well, but since that would have been too early (sugar cane plantation workers work very early to evade the heat of the sun) we decided it was not worth our sleep. Moty, however, took us for a short detour to a sugar plantation anyway for no extra costs. He has extensive knowledge on Panama and the way people live in Panama. He took control over arranging meetings and communicates well about the possibilities. He responds quickly on WhatsApp as well. It's been an awesome tour and we learned a lot about rum. He was quite interested in learning about rum himself and took the liberty to ask some clarifying questions himself. It's been a great experience!

If you enjoy being herded around like a sheep then touring with Moti Hen is not for you. But if you want individual attention and the services of a guide who will get you down with everyday Panamanians and their activities then Moti is your man. Yeah, yeah, yeah, everyone wants to visit Boquete, and Moti will take you there. But he will also take you to the forest, a coffee farm and a visit with Los Gatos Solo. See a rodeo, a beautiful beach near David at sunset, a family harvesting and processing their sugar cane, Caldera, a hot spring, a small yuca farm (dig up some yuca roots for dinner), the manufacture of hand made cigars and beautiful Cerro Punta. Stay at Kibbutz de Rita (Rita is Moti's better half) and enjoy a wonderful and plenteous breakfast and dinner before and after a full day of touring Chiriqui Provence. English, Hebrew and Spanish are spoken by Rita and Moti.

We first met Armando last year on the Quetzal Trail hike. He has an incredible amount of knowledge about the plants and animals in the area.This year we also did a waterfall and coffee tour which were wonderful as well. If we go back, we will make a point to find him again.
