Boquete: Other hostels & hotels

It can easily happen that our own hostel is full or that you prefer to stay in Bajo Boquete instead of Alto Boquete where we are located. It can also be that you prefer something different, more private or with more luxury.

For this reason we have selected the best options in the area for you in the three categories: budget, middle-class or luxury.

  • Hotel Isla Verde in Boquete
  • Hostal Refugio del Rio
  • Hotel The Haven - Boquete
  • Entrance Hostel Refugio del Rio
  • Swimming Pool  Hotel The Haven
  • Boquete Rock Cabin
  • Boquete Stone Cabins

You can contact the following hotels yourself or let us do the job for you. If you contact them yourself, we recommend you tell them that Spanish by the River – Boquete referred you to them.

If you can’t find what you prefer, just write us a message explaining exactly what you are looking for and we will do our best to find a good match for you!
