New York Times Announces the 52 Places to Go Worldwide in 2023 and Boquete Made the List!

52 Places to Go in 2023

Jan. 12, 2023

Boquete, Panama has been named as one of the 52 Places to Visit in 2023 by The New York Times and we couldn’t be more thrilled!

From world-renowned coffee grown on its slopes to hiking to cascading waterfalls, rafting through white-water rapids and more, Boquete is the perfect place to call home.  Boquete is a true hidden gem.  Described as a slope-side nirvana for coffee geeks, waterfall hikers, and white-water rafters, Boquete offers an unrivaled living experience that combines culture and nature at its best.  Take advantage of this opportunity and own a piece of this slope-side nirvana in 2023.


Geisha, among the world’s most expensive coffee varietals, thrives on the slopes of the Barú Volcano, near Panama’s western border.  In recent years, specialty coffee geeks the world over have gravitated here, encouraging coffee farms around the highland town of Boquete to act more like Bordeaux vineyards.  New cupping rooms and bodega tours have been added at farms like Lamastus Family Estates, Chevas Coffee Estate and Finca Altieri, while coffee-themed hotels — including Finca Lérida and Panamonte — have updated their facilities.

In Boquete’s town center, which acts as a base for adventure activities like waterfall hikes and white-water rafting, the noted Panama City chef Mario Castrellón has opened a branch of the coffee roaster Café Unido, as well as a restaurant and bar with seasonal menus and Geisha-infused cocktails, in the new Selina hostel.  The bold, 60-room property straddles a small river, with rooms ranging from beds in concrete cylinders to luxe suites.
