Adventure Days The Haven Boquete

tripadvisor-logo5 of 5 stars
After a long drive to Boquete from San Carlos it was truly a delight to find & check-in to The Haven! We were greeted by a friendly, English speaking, receptionist who efficiently checked us in and showed us to our room and pointed out all of the nice amenities included with our stay. The daily fresh fruit and fully stocked refrigerator was great. Loved the clean modern bathroom; the large shower head was wonderful. I would like to recommend Arelys to anyone looking for an excellent relaxing massage. I was remiss in making an appointment ’til the last minute and Arelys was so very kind and thoughtful to fit me into her busy schedule at the last minute. I was given an excellent leg & foot treatment. A big Thank You to The Haven and the excellent staff. I highly recommend the spa for a true heavenly & quiet retreat.

As guests of The Haven Spa and Hotel Boquete we are very happy to help you with any advice, information or reservations for trips, tours, transportation, taxis, and restaurant bookings at reception between 8.00 and 7.00

The slope allows gravity to pull you downhill while attached to a harness, and a handbrake – allowing you to slow down as you reach the next platform. At Boquete Tree Trek Adventure, they use heavy-duty cables, world-class safety equipment and well trained guides to ensure your safety at all times.

The last major eruption of the volcano was about 500 AD. There are reports, and some evidence, of a minor eruption around 1550 AD. However, deep in the earth, beneath your feet, the molten rock of the earth’s interior still transmits heat upward through sold rock to ground water which has penetrated to that depth. This extremely hot water then forces its way upward through fissures and fractures, warming rocks and water as it goes. Where the hot water can escape at the ground surface, a hot spring is formed. The Caldera Hot Spring is produced by the emergence of geo-thermally-heated groundwater from the earth’s crust. $35 Per Person for Half Day Expedition Hotel pick-up at 8:00am or 1:30 pm (2 person minimum) or call: 6627-8829
