Villa Marita in Boquete: A Great Place to Stay and What a Host

Every year our family spends a few days  in Boquete during the Christmas break and we usually stay at Villa Marita. We love Villa Marita for a number of reasons- starting with it’s location-  a few minutes from downtown Boquete up  on a mountainside plateau with spectacular views  of Volcan Baru.  I so look forward to every  morning there as  we enjoy a delicious  buffet breakfast and look up at views of the volcano. That terrace has beautiful views  throughout the day rain or shine and usually ends with a  beautiful sunset.

If this is your first trip to Boquete, Villa Marita is a good place to stay because its owner and host is Rodrigo Marciaq is  a very knowledgeable  who is always generous with his time in orienting gueets.   He  is up early  attending to  guests with questions about the anything and connecting them to where they want to go and what they want to see.

Villa Marita has reasonably priced individual chalets  with sitting rooms and a  private terrace  with a view. The grounds are  beautifully landscaped grounds with many flowers and trees. The large social area is comfy, with free wifi and internet, views and free coffee, hot chocolate and teas 24 hours a day.This is the perfect place for families with kids of all ages.

Rodrigo, a Panamanian with impeccable English is a graduate of Texas A & M. He epitomizes the many Panamanians who understand and truly enjoy foreigners. He has also has  a hydroponic farm next door and is  happy to show guests this revolutionary kind of agriculture- so you can throw in  some agro-tourism here as well.
