Property Description
DATES AND DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE THIS MONTH. EMAIL OR CALL FOR DETAILS!! Welcome to Hacienda Salsipuedes!! (translates as 'Leave if you can!') Consider that you can reserve this private home with fully stocked kitchen, three bedrooms and huge patio with views in the secure and quiet subdivision of Valle Escondido for much less than the cost of rooms in a hotel. Prepare a few meals instead of dining out and add to your savings. We love to start our day with fresh brewed local estate coffee, toasted bakery bread from the Belgian Bakery, and a fruit salad of sun-ripened papaya, mango, banana, pineapple, with fresh yogurt from the area. Eggs, sausage, bacon, ham as well as lunch and dinner items can be found at one of the several local supermarkets and deli's. Good cheeses, local and imported, very acceptable wines and some spirits are available. A truck brings fresh fish from the Pacific to the local farmers market in big coolers of ice daily.

Boquete and the western highlands of Panama have been a destination for adventurous Europeans and savvy Americans since the 1920's. An agricultural area, the farmers here send coffee, vegetables, fruit and cut flowers from the Chiriqui district to restaurants, shops and homes all over the country. The microclimate and soil on the many fincas near here consistently produce award-winning, delicious coffees. Some growers are under contract with Starbucks, others will give you a tour of their operation from bush to roasting. Fascinating! Tourism and Retirement Living are growing market sectors, but the area is still largely being discovered by visitors. We have found the merchants in Boquete and the larger city of David, pop. 50,000 to be welcoming and courteous, always doing their best speaking English when our Spanish runs out. Our Panamanian neighbors in town are always helpful and enthusiastic about the beauty and history of their Chiriqui home.

Valle Escondido, a gated, 9 hole golf course neighborhood, is just a short walk (15 min) from the small, bustling downtown area in Boquete. For us, a day of hiking, shopping or birding usually finishes up with a cool drink along the river somewhere where we ponder our choices of Italian fare (Il Pianista), American-Familiar (Bistro Boquete), Peruvian seafood (Delicias de Peru / Machu Picchu) or charcoal-seared steak from the Argentine parilla. For fun, add zip-line tours, river rafting (class II up to IV+), horses or rented ATVs to your To-Do list. Or just put your feet up on our large terrace and enjoy a cold, handmade pina colada as you take in the view across the valley with the Quebrada Grande stream chuckling below.

Spanish lessons/tutoring are offered by a couple of small schools who can evaluate your starting point and move your personal abilities forward.

This home is perfect for one or two couples, or a family group of 4-8 as the Master and Guest bedrooms each have a private bath. Traveling with teens? They can have some privacy. Infant? There is a playpen which doubles as a sleeping crib. Close to town, yet away from traffic in a secluded and private corner of Valle Escondido, you will enjoy a nice combination of convenience, privacy and quiet. (The entire hacienda of 6BR/5BA may also be rented-contact us for details, or see VRBO listing #229055).

Email with specific questions and, once you have made your reservation, peruse our orientation guide with info on Boquete / Volcan / David areas, details, photos and activities.

This home was built by us with another couple as a winter getaway, NOT as a rental, but our work schedule intrudes on our traveling this year, so we are sharing it via VRBO. Allow more time than you think you will need. There is lots to do (or not do). We absolutely love it here and daydream often about our next holiday, living in Hacienda Salsipuedes.
Warm regards, Nancy & Bruce, Connie and Jeff, Owners
