Overview

Introduction

Chiriqui Province, The Highlands of Western Panama

 A one hour flight from Panama City, and only 50 minutes drive from David airport, the picturesque mountain village of Boquete is one of the most beautiful, pristine regions of the country. It is situated on the edge of the cloud-forest, at approximately 1,000m, on the slopes of the extinct Baru Volcano, Panama's highest peak.

Boquete is wonderful for those seeking complete immersion in nature. It is perfect for walking or bird watching (the famous and resplendent Quetzal can be seen here throughout most of the year) and generally escaping the oppressive heat of the lowlands.

Thanks to the altitude, it benefits from a comfortable climate all-year-round, with an average temperature of 20°c, cooling off at night. Home to vast coffee plantations producing the country’s finest coffee, Boquete’s rich soil also produces citrus fruits, vegetables and an abundance of flowers which fill the region with colour.  It takes great pride in its fine produce and every January the village hosts a renowned flower and coffee fair.

A scenic 1.5 hour drive from Boquete is the small mountain town of Cerro Punta. Due to it’s altitude being almost twice as high, a plethora of different species of bird can be seen from this area and the near by Los Quetzales trail. This famous and magnificent trail joins Boquete and Cerro Punta and takes approximately 5-6 hours. Accommodation in nearby Cerro Punta is rustic yet comfortable however the major draw for travellers to Cerro Punta is the diversity in bird species and how well combining it with bird watching in Boquete is.
