Once upon a time, a Dutchman built this castle to pay homage to his beloved. Now it's a surreal fun center with an indoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi, onsite bar and gardens overlooking the hills. There's three dorm rooms but the most sought-after lodgings are fiberglass hobbit holes out back, though budding Rapunzels could opt for the two-story tower.
The owners, Tom and Dan, are two Canadians from Alberta who aim to please. It's a US$3 taxi ride from the center.
Bambuda Castle is a hostel located in Boquete, a small town in Panamas coffee region. The property features a bar, swimming pool and a hot tub. The hostel has both dorms and private rooms that all include linen and safety boxes. The private rooms have both a private entrance and a private bathroom. There is a terrace that overlooks the Volcan Baru, the highest mountain in Panama. At Bambuda Castle you can book all of your tours and transportation. An array of activities can be enjoyed on site or in the surroundings. Boquete has some of the worlds best coffee plantation and is the perfect place for all outdoor activities including hiking, zip lining and river rafting.
