Area Information 

Escape the heat of the lowlands and head for the mountains.  Panama’s highlands offer lush forests, cool springs and fresh air.  The town of Boquete, nestled in a valley in the Province of Chiriqui, has a perfect, spring-like climate year round.  This historically agricultural community has had a new wave of foreign immigrants in recent years; people drawn by the climate, the people, lifestyle, cost and quality of life. Boquete is 38 km from Chiriqui’s capital of David, a pleasant day trip from the Caribbean Coast and 40 km from the Pacific Coast. There are daily flights from Panama City to David.

Activities in Boquete often revolve around nature.  This area is known as the “land of coffee and flowers”. Birding, hiking, cycling, fishing, river-rafting, horseback riding, jogging, gardening, can all be enjoyed here year-round.  Lucero Golf & Country Club is the only 18-hole Championship golf course in the area.
