About Miryam

Greetings!

I'm delighted for your interest to come visit my country, and for the opportunity to introduce you to the lovely town of Boquete and our house, our spot of escape and leisure.

La Luciernaga, our home away from home, is a place of relaxation, happiness and fun , our favorite place in the world. A place surrounded by nature and positive energy, where we welcome and enjoy family and friends as often as work and school schedules allows us.

We are a family of four, an Irish man, two New York boys and myself, born in Panama. Over many years, while living in the USA, we traveled to Panama to visit family and get to know this country. Many trips later, and many places we visited, we concluded that the Chiriqui Highlands was the place for us to built our second home.

The beautiful abundant nature and ideal spring like climate were so inviting. The area's easy going and happy people, whether locals or foreigners vacationing or living here made a decision to Stay quite easy.

About eight years ago we built our house with much love and excitement. One of this years we will be able to spend longer periods of time at this our Firefly House, until that time comes, we like to keep it alive and lit.

Thank you for considering to visit and feed our firefly with laughs, care, good energy and great moments. I am sure you and your loved ones will enjoy those also during your stay. Certainly you will also built and take along with you beautiful memories.

Happy travels,

Miryam

Miryam purchased this house in 2007

What makes this house unique

About Boquete........

Situated in Panama’s highlands, Boquete is nestled into the lush mountains less than 40 miles from the border the country shares with Costa Rica. Located in the western-most Chiriquí Province, the town sits on the Caldera River approx a half hour drive from the capital city of David. Its elevation of almost 4,000 feet above sea level helps to alleviate the sweltering humidity experienced by some of its coastal neighbors.

Boquete enjoys perpetual spring-like temperatures and breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. With a population of less than 20, residents of Boquete enjoy a small-town atmosphere.

The mountains around Boquete are home to the Ngobe-Bugle people. This indigenous group is comprised of farmers and artisans. They fashion chaquiras (bead necklaces), baskets, chacara (woven bags) and nahua (the garments of their native dress).

The mountains around Boquete offer opportunities for hiking, such as the Sendero de los Quetzales trail or the ascent to the top of the Volcan Baru, a dormant volcano that is also the nation’s highest point. Rock climbing, zip lining, whitewater rafting, and horseback riding round out the list of other available action-packed adventures.

For the slightly more faint of heart, the above areas can also be explored by vehicle, although the country’s push for ecotourism would encourage exploration that leaves the least impact on the natural environment.

Also available are more leisurely tours of the local coffee plantations "Boquete is to coffee as Bordeaux is to wine" Panama's coffee has been considered by experts to be the best coffee in the world.

Outstanding Villa and Views

  • 5 of 5

As a Multiple HomeAway Property owner, I was very pleased with the Firefly Villa, it's location, and ownership support. It was very clean, and well appointed. The gardner keeps the grounds well manicured. The comfort factor is great, and the safety scale is great. No issues. The amount of entertainment area on the decks, and inside is very adequate. Outside fireplace for chilly nights, and outside bar for entertaining with Jacuzzi. The views are just great for relaxation and doing nothing. The small creek in the back gives the soothing water noises that adds to the mountain atmosphere. Lots of things to do in the nearby town of Boquete, and the owner is always willing to offer advise and info on the surrounding area. Lots of day tours from this area. We are returning and will schedule this villa again. You won't be disappointed.

John Persad.

Great Home in the Mountains!

  • 5 of 5

The home was fantastic. Its in a great location, central to downtown Boquete, but secluded enough to enjoy the mountains and nature from your back porch. Miryam was a wonderful hostess and made sure we had everything we needed when we arrived and stayed in touch throughout our stay. I highly recommend this home for your next trip!

Una experiencia maravillosa

  • 5 of 5

Es el lugar perfecto para desconectarse y recargar energía. La casa está inmersa en la naturaleza. El sonido del río que pasa detrás, la vista al volcán y el verde brillante que rodea la casa son como bálsamo para el alma. Fueron las vacaciones perfectas con la familia. Miryam, su dueña, una anfitriona de primera. Siempre atenta a cualquier necesidad que tuviéramos, así como los empleados de la casa. La casa es hermosa, amplia, acogedora, cálida y llena de detalles. Muy cerca de restaurantes y supermercados. Como para regresar mil veces!

Gracias Miryam!
