This family friendly getaway base camp is just a scenic ten minute drive from the center of Boquete town, Panama, on a well paved road. The three yurts are located in the center of the activities that draw tourists and locals to these mountains. The yurts have everything guests will need for a peaceful mountain escape, or as a base camp for access to the exciting activities nearby.

The three unique yurts were designed to be Eco-friendly and do not provide electricity or plumbing. However, they do provide the opportunity for glampers to gain a gentle experience of life in times past and to experience the moods of nature. Lanterns are provided in each yurt. Outside, solar lighting guides glampers to a shared bath house like none other, welcoming and delighting all with colorful paintings depicting earlier times in a tropical setting. The shared bath house was designed to provide privacy, security and is supplied with all essentials. Including, purified running water hot enough for an invigorating shower or relaxing bath!

The glamping yurts have a ceiling dome for viewing the stars and treetops! Screened windows allow the flow of mountain breezes. The France yurt sleeps six, and is furnished in a French style with an antique iron double bed and two bunk beds. The Perú themed yurt sleeps seven, with a queen bed, a twin bed and two bunk beds. The Panamá yurt, with its local adornments, is furnished with three bunk beds. The hosts will happily provide extra quilts upon request. The Panamá yurt has a ramp entry making it easily accessible and is the closest to the bathhouse which also provides ramp access. One bathhouse shower room offers a hand held shower fixture and a free standing bathtub.

Each yurt has a deck and additional seating options just steps away, great for picnics or breakfast al fresco. The yurts sit on a gorgeous grassy slope with a roofed gazebo, a fire pit, and pristine gardens planted with native species. Fruit trees and a herb garden beckon guests to enjoy the hammocks, walking trails, and a water feature all providing guests numerous sites to be alone with nature.

For a gorgeous view of the forest, glampers can drive along the Bajo Mono Loop and the Caldera River, passing the San Ramón waterfall and Los Ladrillos, a climbing site on a unique geologic formation.
