We have been asked why the butterflies on our web site.  The reason is worth mentioning.  Actually, there are two reasons, one I like butterflies. But the main reason is that butterflies flock around the wet sand piles used in making cement art.  On some days there can be as many as 500 or more butterflies.  Butterflies will also land on wet cement.  The reason is that they are looking for water and can safely land on the wet sand or cement without drowning or being washed away.

Why the Butterflies?

The Space

Black Rock B&B is located high on a hill with incredible views from the huge deck.  Surrounded by 26 acres, it is very quiet with only the sounds of birds and insects.  We enjoy perfect year round temperatures in the mid 80’s during the day and low 70’s at night, almost always a cool mountain breeze.   A spacious studio apartment with full kitchen, microwave, stove with oven, full size refridgerator and plenty of cabinet space  The deck is 12 ft by 34 ft.  The bathroom has a 2 person shower.

Interaction With Guests

Your hosts, Chris and Lorraine, having lived here for over 15 years, can guide you to all the great things to see and do.  They can direct you to the hidden water falls - an easy 10 minute walk, arrange horseback riding and put you in contact with various tour operators.  They balance between being helpful and respecting your privacy.  

The Neighborhood

This is a very safe neighborhood on the outskirts of the small community of Caldera which is part of the Boquete district.  It is a 25 minute drive to downtown Boquete.

Getting Around

Both David and Boquete busses come to the gate at our driveway.  The 1/4 mile long driveway goes up the a hill to the our house and the apartment. There is plenty of parking space for your car. From here it is a 25 minutes drive to Boquete and 45 minutes to David.

Other Things to Note

Our cancellation policy follows Airbnb and Trip Advisor's individual policies.  Lots of friendly animals that you can pet. Great bird watching on the property and in Caldera.

Arrival Information

It is really helpful if we know when to expect your arrival and how you will be getting here.  Please try to check in before dark. Check ins after 9 PM by prior arrangment.  On your patio or deck we ask you to be quiet after 10:30 PM.   You can stay up as late as you want.  This is a non smoking apartment.  Smoking outside or on the deck is OK.  In case you missed it, we have friendly dogs, but our dogs are not friendly to other dogs - so no pets please.

We will pick you up the bus station or airport and give you a little tour of David - take you grocery shopping or stop for lunch or dinner and if needed take you to Cowboy Daves car rental for $60
