This is a really low-key version of a hot springs destination. As long as you don't expect the Ritz, you will enjoy the experience.
If you lack 4x4, park at the security booth by the canal and walk the rest of the way (20 minutes to the springs) - we saw another sedan get stuck on the road. The walk is perfectly nice, anyway. When you arrive, the proprietress will take $2 and warn you about the monkey. You just need to keep all your knick-knacks in your bag. Then you wander the path between the hot springs.
We enjoyed a quick dip in each of the springs, some of which have benches/flat rocks, others do not. The temperature is warm and it is neat to see the bubbles coming up from the ground. The only downside was that it was a very hot day, so we didn't want to hang out in the springs for too long. Some people were swimming in the river to cool off, but it is downstream of a quarry of some kind, and I couldn't convince myself that the cloudiness in the river was natural...
Anyhow, this is a nice outing from Boquete. I would recommend going very early in the day when the air is cooler to maximize your enjoyment of the warm waters.
