“utopia in the canyon”
We had a wonderful time and can not say enough about this nature retreat. Frank has sculpted a destination location. A true utopia in this river canyon. The sun is always shining ,the pool is huge and inviting & the river wraps around his property like a glove. Weather you stay for a weekend or a month it is hard to leave.
Response from the owner THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR VISIT. WE ARE WORKING HARD TO KEEP IT NATURAL IN THE FACE OF ALL THE DESTRUCTIVE DEVELOPMENT FRANK
“One with nature in the most private and beautiful river setting.”
We arrived in a torrential downpour and received the most warm and personal welcome from Frank and Mo - his German Shepherd. The only noises we heard the whole time we stayed there, were the river and the birds singing. We blended in with nature from our completely private casita in the midst of thick jungle trees, filled with tropical birds and the river just a few feet away. The inside of the casita was very comfortable and was stocked with everything we needed. Frank has done an amazing job of designing and landscaping the grounds around the casitas, pool and main areas, with pre-colombian statues and art. The rest of his property is left natural and can be enjoyed from a wonderful walking path which meanders through the trees and along the river. It was nice to stay in such a beautiful, natural setting, away from towns, yet be close enough to go into Boquete or Caldera, for lunch or dinner. There were more places to explore and see in this area, then we had time for, so we definitely want to come back. We look forward to staying at El Rio Encantado again, this time in the dry season! If you like peace and tranquility, getting in touch with nature, wonderful hospitality, and staying in an amazing nature reserve, that will give you memories to last a lifetime, this is your place! Thanks Frank!
“This is how movie stars vacation”
Small, secluded resort nestled in the hillsides of Caldera with gorgeous views of waterfalls and rivers. Each cottage is unique and very private. The property is secure and we always felt safe. The resort is a nature preserve filled with tropical plants,beautiful butterflies and birds. Frank is an excellent host and has a wealth of knowledge regarding life in Panama. If you are a dog lover, Mo is a treat. My husband loved the rock in the pool, where else will you find a pool built around a rock?
Response from the owner SO, WONDERFUL TO HAVE SHARED MY WORLD WITH YOU AND DO HOPE YOU RETURN IN THE DRY SEASON FRANK, MO AND JOSE
This was our second trip to Panama but the 1st time we have stayed with Frank. From the moment we arrived to our departure we felt we were getting the ideal Panama experience. The facilities are way above average and Frank is the ideal host. Some days were spent seeing the sights (Frank was a great source of information - he has lived in Panama for 15 yrs) and some days were pool days. Some highlights - we ate in Caldera at Melissa's (good food - $3.00 per person), visited the hot springs, spent a day at the ocean, toured Boquette and the surrounding area. We also played in the river which runs right through the property. We were there with another couple and there were times when we felt as if this was our own private resort. The cottages are removed from each other so it is easy to be off by yourself. We enjoyed ourselves so much we made reservations for a week next March. Give this place a try, you won't regret it.
Response from the owner MISS YOU GUYS ALREADY, I,LL SEND INFO ON PROPERTY PURCHASE, CHECK PANAMA WEB PAGE FOR PENSION STATUS SEE YOU IN FEB. 2012 FRANK
“Fantastic place in gorgeous natural setting!”
Rio Encantado turned out to be one of the few places on a 3 week trip through Costa Rica and Panama that totally exceeded our expectations. The grounds were beautifully planted and maintained, the casitas were well appointed, comfortable and secure and the hosts were a wealth of information without being intrusive. I would recommend Rio Encantado wholeheartedly! If you are thinking about staying in Boquete do yourself a favor and stay here instead. It is much prettier and an easy drive to Boquete.
Response from the owner Thanks you for your stay, enjoyed your company, come on back in the dry season Frank
