Boquete: Panama’s Perfect Mountain Paradise

Print Friendly


If you’ve visited Boquete, Panama before, you’ll understand why this title’s true. Boquete is one of the true treats of small-town Panama, popular with locals for centuries, and now a hot spot for tourism and expat relocation as well. Boquete is situated about a 6-hour drive from Panama City, tucked away in the Chiriqui highlands. It’s easy to reach from David (Panama’s 2nd largest city) which is a 40-minute drive away. The proximity to David also makes Boquete easy to reach by short drive after a flight from Panama City, which takes about 30-40 minutes. This makes Boquete remote, but still accessible without much hassle to the capital and its airports and bus terminals. Boquete is situated right in the mountains, adjacent to Volcan Baru. It’s got a cool climate (60s-70s F, 20-26 C), which makes it an ideal escape from the heat, and a great location for outdoor activities.

Learn Spanish in Panama!

Print Friendly


Learning Spanish in Panama can be as fun as it is useful, and is easier than ever these days thanks to its popularity. Spanish is an important language to master, even if you don’t live in Panama or Latin America. More and more, multinational businesses need these types of language skills for their employees, making it a high demand skill for both the North American and European job market. Schools weigh language tools upon acceptance. And more importantly, learning Spanish helps bring people in the Americas closer together, and gives us greater empathy towards one another in a growing globalized world.

Retirees heading to Panama tend to find themselves with many types of communities to live in that suits their taste.

If you’re looking for a quiet, natural, upscale beach life that’s about an hour or so from Panama City, this may be your best bet. Here’s why.
