Located approximately 10 mins from the center of Boquete, Finca Lerida Ecolodge is nestled in the middle of its own coffee plantation and surrounded by a private natural forest reserve with over 550 different species of birds which makes it the ideal place for bird watching in the Highland region of Chiriqui. The property is also bordered by the VolcanBaru National Park - which has the only volcano in Panama. Further afield lies the La Amistad International Park, a UNESCO designated World Heritage site. Wake up to the symphony of birds and to the aroma of our home grown “Finca Lerida” Estate Coffee brewed specially for you! Each of the 21 rooms with private bathroom offer satellite tv, safe, deluxe toiletries, wi-fi and phone service as well as having an independent porch, and a beautiful view of the valley and surrounding mountains. All the rooms are individually decorated and named after birds found in Finca Lerida Highlands. At the heart of the coffee plantation, you'll find the restaurant complete with wooden deck and surrounding gardens. Imagine breakfast here...amidst flowers and hummingbirds, breathing in the fresh, clean morning air with the mountain range in the background resembling a beautiful landscape painting. What is not to like with a place like this?!
Panama is one of the favorite destinations for birding, but birding in Panama is not complete unless you visit the Boquete highlands. As suggested in Robert S. Ridgley's A Guide to The Birds of Panama, Finca Lerida is a place to go "searching for quetzals and other specialties". Located in an exclusive private nature reserve at an altitude ranging from 5,000 to 10,000 feet above sea level, Finca Lerida is a unique and prefered destination for people interested in exploring its rich flora and fauna, for bird watchers, nature photographers and eco-tourism in general.

This is only the beginning of the High Altitude cuisine experience at Finca Lerida.
In this little paradise, the Hotel has designed a classic menu enriched with its own creations. The fine cuisine has a fresh and crunchy taste. Seafood, meats, pastas, soups, gourmet sandwiches and local dishes can be enjoyed along with the songs of birds and the astounding views of the beautiful historical Coffee Estate.
The trails of Finca Lerida are ecological paths that lead you through the coffee plantation and tropical forest of Boquete.
This is the most accessible region of Chiriqui’s High Lands where the beautiful Quetzal bird can be seen thanks to the conservation of the forest and the “Aguacatillo” tree that provides the Quetzal with its favorite fruit.
Most of these trails go deep inside La Amistad International Park where more than 500 species of American Tropical birds can be found.
Finca Lerida borders Amistad National Park (PILA), a natural reserve protected both by Panama and Costa Rica that has been declared a World Heritage Site. The professionally designed trails are surrounded by primary and secondary forests, where a variety of exotic animals and vegetation make their home.
