  • Description


    Hi, I'm Luis, a local Panamanian taking care of a family property in Boquete with a very nice and comfortable 3 bedroom house surrounded by nature.

    I'm currently making small improvements to the house and I could really use your help with vegan or vegetarian cooking and some cleaning so I can focus my energy on the work.

    The cooking can be done late afternoons and enough for dinner and lunch the following day so most of the day is open for you to explore Boquete, sleep in, read, or do whatever you want.

    I buy the ingredients for lunch and dinner, we each take care of our breakfasts.

    Please read the profile and reviews to understand better what it's like here because this place is not for everybody. It is super quiet and relaxing, perfect if you want to slow down, disconnect and reconnect with nature.

    You must enjoy hiking and be in good shape. Getting around in Boquete is a workout. From the house it is a 30 minute hike down to town, and 40 min hike up to get back. Town is at 1100 mts above sea level, house at 1300 mts. There are plenty of beautiful nature hikes around to experience the cloudforest.

    What else ...

    Boquete is one of the top adventure travel destinations in Central America. Temperature is like AC year-round, perfect for hiking in the lush green fairy tale looking cloudforest. There are also small farms everywhere producing high quality coffee.

    Most travelers will find it easy to get to Boquete. And once here the town is small and easy to figure out. One important thing to point out is that being a mountain town, there are lots of hills so walking on flat terrain is rare. If you are in good shape and enjoy hiking, you will love it here, if not, then this might not be the right place for you.

    There are stores to buy essentials close to the house, otherwise the town center is 30-40 minutes walking with supermarkets, internet cafes, public library, and farmer market where you can find a great variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, and because it is a top travel destination, tour operators, restaurants, and a few bars.
