The Breakfast

We shop the local markets daily to bring to our table fresh, natural and organic food whenever possible. Boquete is famous for its coffee and we encourage you to make your own by providing local Panamanian coffee and a French Press. We have instructions if you are a novice or we can bring you a carafe of freshly brewed drip coffee. Either way it is a divine way to begin your day.

A lovely array of local, fresh, tropical fruit starts each day. (papaya, bananas and pineapple). We deliver rich Panamanian yogurt, a variety of whole grain bakery breads, and free-range eggs. There is creamy, grass-fed butter. We are cautious with sugar and use only French “fruit only” jellies, no sugar added orange juice and the only syrup in Panama that does not use corn syrup.  Each day varies. There can be whole hot oats with brown sugar, raisins and nuts, cold cereals, frittatas, quiches, waffles or French toast.

Each morning breakfast is brought to The Breakfast Lounge at a pre-arranged time from 7:00 am to 9:00 am. You can take your breakfast at the dining table in The Breakfast Lounge or fill your plate and take it to your room or to one of the lovely spaces outside in the gardens.

The Gardens and Walkways

The Hacienda is a very lush and you are encouraged to wander the gardens, walkways and stairways. We have a variety of orchids, bromeliads, ferns, cacti and succulents. There are flowering plants and trees that draw in hummingbirds and butterflies. Many avid birders have had a great time discovering new species to add to their lists right in our backyard. As you walk you’ll discover many small niches created specifically for observing the extraordinary mix of wild jungle and manicured gardens that attract the wide diversity of tropical birds that flourish in the Boquete highlands. There is a mixture of banana plantation, wild jungle and planned garden beds. There is an assortment metal and ceramic suns framing special nooks throughout the property. Colorful concrete benches, comfortable outside furniture, couches, swings and hammocks are discovered as you investigate the grounds. Walk down the winding concrete steps to the stream area where jungle abundance surrounds you. In certain seasons the small stream becomes a trickle but the path it cuts into the banana jungle is always peaceful and prefect for sharing long conversations, reading that great book or simply sitting in quiet contemplation.
