Because we are located on a hill above the central town of Caldera, we have much cooler temperatures. Typically day time temperatures are in the low to mid 80's and night time tempurtures are in the upper 60's low 70's. It can sometimes get hotter in the dry season. The bedrooms have split air conditioners but it it rarely used. 


Mague is a very safe neighborhood over looking the small community of Caldera which is part of the Boquete District.

This special home is pleasant 30 minute drive to downtown Boquete. The hot springs and secret waterfalls are very close by.  On the property, during the rainy season there is a swimming hole in a little river.  So you are living close yet very private. Dorado Plus, an excellent super market, is at the junction of the Caldera/Boquete roads. Downtown Caldera has excellent fruits stands and small markets with many staples.. 


Access to the property is through an electric gated entrance off Calle Estrella, a paved road.

The 1/4 mile long driveway winds up the a hill to the house. Plenty of space for guest parking. From here it is approximately a 25 minute drive to Boquete and 45 minutes to David. If you have difficulty walking, this is probably not the place for you.
