Boquete Multi-Day Adventure Tour
Boquete is a small town in Panama, located in the western-most Province of Chiriquí, about 60km (37 miles) from the border of Costa Rica, and lies on the Caldera River, in Panama's green mountain highlands. Due to its elevation, some 1,200 meters (3,900 feet) above sea level, its climate is cooler than that of the lowlands. Its scenic location, temperature and natural environment makes it a popular destination for Panamanians and attracts tourists from the world over. Flights (less than one-hour in duration) depart Panama City for David and from David it’s about a 30-minute shuttle to Boquete.

Ranked #2 Tour Operator in Panama City by TripAdvisor
"We took two tours with Jeff from Barefoot Panama and they were great. Jeff was an exceptional tour guide. He met us promptly at our hotel to take us to Lake Gatun for a zip lining excursion. While driving, he shared great tips about the area and what to expect on the tour. We also joined him for a walking tour in the evening and customized it to fit our family and our interests. We had numerous great private tours all over the world, but this is the first time we felt compelled to share our awesome experience. If you want to have a wonderful experience while in Panama, book with Barefoot Panama!"
High Praise for Barefoot Panama
“Best tourist guide in Americas. Beer, food and knowledge is super brilliant.”
– Ian Yeoman
“I traveled with Kevin on a small group, 3 month overland trip from San Diego to Panama through all of Central American countries… He was always on top of things and resolved the issues without us hardly knowing they were happening. He was flexible to our needs and requests, whilst ensuring that we saw the best that each country/area had to show. His local knowledge was amazing so that we got to see things and go places that none of the other trips did. Because of Kevin’s skills I think that we saw more of the real country than we would have done otherwise. And he made it FUN.”
