Boquete: Panama


We are now back in Panama for our last eight days in Central America. We stayed in a town called David for two nights before travelling on to Boquete, for some respite from the sometimes stifling heat and humidity of the lower regions of Central America. Situated some 3900 ft above sea level it’s a much cooler climate. Making it a favourite place for many Canadians and Americans to retire to. The town has plenty of nice restaurants and coffee shops to choose from, the town even has its own micro brewery, called The Boquete Brewing Company. which I have to say serves a decent pint of beer “I did partake in a few one evening listening to a live band”. Boquete is a great place to kick back and unwind. There are a few hikes dotted around town just a couple of miles away. The main one probably is the Volcan Barú Trail which is 17 mile long hike to the top of the volcano. My walking app estimates that it takes around 12 hours. Needless to say we did not attempt this one. Our five nights in Boquete was just what we expected, nice and relaxing . It’s certainly a place that should be on your itinerary if visiting Panama.
