BOQUETE

Boquete has grown in the last 10 years in a very impressive way where it’s fair to say “for the greater good of the whole district”… Now there are many restaurants, hotels and many touristic activities such as:

  • COFFEE TOURS
  • RIVER RAFTING
  • CANOPY
  • ROCK CLIMBING
  • BIRD WATCHING

“We could be up in the mountains enjoying coffee right beside the river, and in just 2 hours we could be in one of our favorite islands called Gamez drinking a pina colada, and while we are at it we can “go fishing” and see if we get Lucky!”

If you wish to visit as tourists or investors you can contact us, and we will point you to the right direction – we are very enthusiastic when it comes to showing why these lands are filled with opportunities.

CITY OF DAVID

Surrounded by mountains, and only an hour away, the city of David is one of the fastest growing regions in Panama. As the capital of Chiriqui province, this tropical city offers modern conveniences including a variety of boutiques, restaurants and cafes, as well as vibrant night life. This small colonial town is one of Panama’s three largest cities and is easy to navigate with its grid-like street plan.

Although David is a modern city, developing every week due to an active government, commercial and distribution center, it continues to maintain the feel of a charming provincial metropolis. A short drive away you will find multiple beaches including La Barqueta, Las Lajas and Playa Hermosa as well as the quaint mountain town of Boquete. Boquete is known for its crisp mountain air, fresh vegetables, beautiful views, and mountain grown coffee. Standard of living is high, while cost of living is low. Enjoy fresh fruit, coffee and eggs for about $1 and lunch for $3.
