A collection of my thoughts and photos on travel.

Isla Verde

with 2 comments

November 22, 2009 |  After we arrived in David, we were lucky to find a cab that was willing to drive us to our lodgings in Boquete for $25.  Isla Verde isn’t your typical hotel.  I was a little surprised when the cab driver stopped in front of a house in a neighborhood– maybe he was confused?  I soon learned that the main house is actually where the owner lives (we mistakenly walked in, not realizing that it was her home) and then the roundhouse that we had rented was a short walk from there.  A young German (?) girl escorted us to our roundhouse (She had to be around 21 yrs old? Maybe younger).

I’ll start by saying, the roundhouse was bigger than I expected and super cute! Here’s my family sitting at the dining table (I took the shot from the loft!):

There were a total of 3 beds– a full-sized bed up on the loft, a small twin-sized  by the dining table, and another full-sized bed under the loft.  I, of course, got the small bed as Jennifer quickly claimed the loft as her private haven.

First image is my bed plus dining area.  You can see there’s a tv in the corner of the room but we didn’t turn it on once while we were there!  Second is my parents bed– you can see the stairway on the upper right corner, which leads to the last image– my sister’s bed up in the loft!

For anyone who’s considering going to Boquete, I definitely recommend Isla Verde!  Breakfast is available (made to order) at a cost, as well as laundry services.  The girl in front actually woke up early to make our breakfast so that we could eat before our hiking tour!  The roundhouse also had a kitchenette and bathroom.

  2. Thanks! It was definitely a great home away from home. =) We stayed there for 4 days, 3 nights! It was really nice– we ordered breakfast one morning, but otherwise we ate breakfast together in the morning (cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, bread, and juice/coffee) around that round table.
