About Javier Romero

I am the founder of Aventuras Panama, the adventure outdoor country pioneer, in business since 1994.

I grew up in Casa Romero when my grandpa, Aristides Romero, use to live there. It is not only beautiful but it gathers family memories of 4 generations now.

My parents purchased it from the Romero Family when it was put out for sale. For me, it is exciting to keep a property with so much history within the family, and simultaneously use such an incredible property to expand Aventuras Panama adventure trips within the area.

I am also involved with a Destination Management Company, Experience Panama, and remaining real estate business of the Romero Group in Chiriqui.

I graduated from Purdue University, Indiana as a Mechanical Engineer and from INCAE as an MBA

Javier Romero purchased this chateau / country house in 2011

Why Javier Romero chose Boquete

Besides the family connection, Boquete is the most beautiful mountain town in Panama.

Due to its nice weather and fertile soil, Chiriqui higland is traditonally devoted to grow vegetables, coffee, and dairy farming among other agro industries. But recently, due to its topography and well preserved cloud forest, it has also evolved as an adventure destination.

Boquete has something for everyone. For 3 years it was choosen by International Living has the best place to retire worldwide.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The property is very close to town but out of town congestion. The Caldera River will play its music providing you with a very relaxing enviroment.

You will be able to see, still in their plant, coffee beans and oranges.

The house, built in 1950, has the form of an arch with a terrace all along it facing the backyard, toward the Caldera River.

The master bedroom and petit room have interconnecting doors. Each room also has its own independent door to the terrace.

The Hatillo room, has three twin beds in its upper level and a 3 stores bunker bed on the lower section.

The whole house is only available for rent when independent rooms are not already rented.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Casa Romero. It is a renovated old house with a beautiful balcony that opens to the river and the mountains, where you can enjoy the cool Boquete nights with a good glass of wine and a cigar.

Through Aventuras Panama we booked a rafting trip to the Chiriqui Viejo river. They picked us up at Casa Romero and drove us to the river, where we enjoyed the level 3 and 4 rapids for 2 hours, surrounded by walls of lush tropical forest. We also toured coffee farms where the best coffee in the world is grown
