In the western-most Province of Chiriquí, just a few short miles from the Costa Rican border lies the delightful village of Boquete. Nestled in Panama’s mountain highlands and following the Caldera River, Boquete’s scenery, location, and natural environment make it a popular destination for locals and tourists alike.
Due to its elevation—approximately 3,900 ft. above sea level—Boquete’s climate is cooler than that of the lowlands. This makes the picturesque town particularly attractive to those looking for all the delights of a colorful, exotic locale without the temperature extremes of a lower altitude.
Just as in Panama proper, Boquete offers a multitude of adventures. There’s hiking, zip line canopy tours, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, garden tours and fascinating hot springs. Boquete also features the world’s absolute best coffee tours!
The Chiriquí Gulf—just a short 90 minutes away—offers soft, sandy beaches and lush turquoise waters. Spend the day relaxing in the sun or exploring the beautiful islands, then return to the fresh air of the mountains for the night.
Not only will the gentler temperatures delight, but Boquete’s accommodations are world renowned. Revel in luxurious resorts and delight in a variety of gourmet restaurants, all from the glorious heights of Panama’s highlands.
Boquete is, literally, a bouquet of eco-tourism delights, so don’t hesitate. Book your Boquete adventure today!
