The town of Boquete (pronounced bow-keh-tay) is nestled in the highlands of the fertile province of Chiriquí in western Panama. It is a town of about 6,000 people and a retirement haven for expats. English is commonly spoken.
Flowers of kaleidoscopic colours cover the hills and towering mountains form breath-taking vistas. In the distance you can see the stunning Volcán Barú rising up through the misty clouds while the Rio Caldera flows through the town, soothing residents and visitors with its gurgling sound.
Because of its location in the mountains, Boquete enjoys a cool climate, and this attracts Panamanians and expats alike. Due to the elevation, daytime temperatures are generally in the 70s F and 80s F, with cooler nights. The spring-like weather makes Boquete ideal for full-time residents and snow-birders alike.
Boquete is only 20 minutes from David, Panama’s third-largest city, via a four-lane highway. David is the commercial hub of the region, with many shopping options, all the services you might need, government offices, and medical providers. Two top-rate private hospitals offer affordable and accessible health-care to residents of Boquete and all of Chiriquí Province.
People who live in Boquete also love the fact that the beach is only about an hour away. The Gulf of Chiriquí forms the southern border of Chiriquí Province, and several beach areas beckon those seeking fun in the sun and sand. Golfers can choose from various top-notch golf courses.
As is typical in the Chiriquí region, agriculture remains important to the local economy. Rich, aromatic coffee beans are grown here on farms that dot the hillsides. Citrus is another major crop, with orange groves among the slopes.
Boquete has a well-established expat population and is one of Panama’s top expat destinations. With all it has to offer it’s easy to see why. Near-perfect climate, gorgeous natural surroundings, healthy lifestyle options, and a near-endless variety of social events and activities…it might be perfect for you.
