Finca Lérida

Historic hotel in Boquete

Famous for its coffee farm and birdwatching opportunities – it's one of the best places in the country to see quetzals – Finca Lérida also offers classic lodgings with 22 rooms, suites and cabins. Rooms feature comfortable beds with oversized fabric headboards, lovely wood details and espresso machines, each with a deck and outdoor seating for watching the hummingbirds. Suites feature Jacuzzis.

Breakfasts go over the top, with walnut pancakes, honey sausage and fresh juices. Guests and day-trippers (which are legion) can dine at the on-site restaurant, which features excellent salads made with local produce, and favorites such as smoked tomato soup and trout. There's also a gorgeous bar with a fireplace running on chilly cloud-forest days.
