Touring Boquete: “It’s So Nice I Could Almost Move Here” (Video)

Article Summary:

Andy Browne takes you on a video tour of Boquete, in the green mountain highlands of Panama, in western-most Chiriquí Province, about 60 km. from the border with Costa Rica. Because of its altitude, some 1,200 metres above sea level, its climate is cooler than that of the lowlands. Its scenic location, temperature, and natural environment make it extremely popular with Panamanians, and attracts tourists from all over the world.

    A lot of people would agree with you! Boquete is not only popular with Panamanians: it has a thriving expat community that participates actively in the community and offers a wide variety of social activities. For expats who want to be closer to the beaches and yet still enjoy a laid-back, friendly, small-town atmosphere, I highly recommend Panama’s Azuero Peninsula, which is experiencing a boom in residential communities geared towards expats. Chief among these projects is the Cubitá Wyndham Grand development in the city of Chitre, which offers a luxurious yet affordable lifestyle in a setting that maintains the traditional colonial style of the region. Cubitá is located only a short drive from beautiful, pristine Pacific beaches (including some of the best surfing beaches in the world), and is only minutes away from all of the urban amenities such as banks, grocery stores, restaurants, a mall, hospitals, schools, etc.

    I Have lived in Boquete, Panama for the past 8 years. I have run businesses here and been involved in the local community ( after 20 years in NYC) and originally from Australia. Its a great place if you are willing to be VERY flexible.
    Not Paradise and not for everyone. If you come here, rent first!
    Buena suerte!
