El Rio Encantado is a 100 acre private Eco Lodge/Nature Resort on both sides of the river Caldera on a paved road 15 minutes to the town of Boquete. Set aside years ago to be protected from all the development in the area. Rio Encantado is a special place to spend your vacation.

Four comfortable cottages, and a tree house are scattered throughout the property that allow guests to explore the luxurious gardens on groomed nature trails. All our cottages are self-sufficient accommodations with outfitted kitchens. We have a Rancho, with full kitchen and bar next to the pool. The town of Caldera is only 2 kilometers down the road and here you will find restaurants, grocery supplies, emergency services, police station, the Caldera hot springs.

Enjoy luxurious swimming in our in-ground pool or take a leap into the three tropical swimming holes in our adjacent river. We have our special Tree House completed, located on the river in a very special location. Rio Encantado welcomes nature lovers and birders from all over the world and is for Guests 12 years and up.
