Top Things to Do in Boquete

Top Things to Do in Boquete, Boquete, Panama (B)

Upon booking my impromptu trip to Panama, I hadn’t even heard of Boquete. After sifting through a Panama travel guide, I ended up in this small mountain town for three days! Boquete is located in Panama’s western-most Province of Chiriquí about 40 miles from the Costa Rica border. At 3,900 feet above sea level, its climate as well as its natural environment attracts locals, tourists and a large ex-pat community. While I can’t claim the town of hodge podge buildings mostly clustered along the main thoroughfare and a small square is terribly pretty, the surrounding area consisting of coffee plantations and the Volcán Barú (11,400 ft) National Park make up for it. Boquete affords its visitors a variety of activities including hiking, fishing, rafting, horseback riding, 4×4 off roading, visiting coffee plantations, and simply relaxing. And during the dry season, the weather in Boquete couldn’t be more pleasant!
