Boquete, Panama, is one of the most well-known and popular mountain towns in Central America.
According to AARP, Forbes & other magazines, Boquete is one of the top five places in the world to retire.
Boquete is on the hillside of the extinguished Volcano Baru; more than 2,000 metres above sea level.
The area has pleasant temperatures, beautiful scenery, and a bustling coffee cultivation industry.
Boquete is much cooler than in other areas of Panama.
The daily temperatures are usually in the mid-60s to mid-70s.
It is also rainier than many other parts of Panama.
A bonus of its consistent afternoon rains (locally called, El Bajareque), is frequent rainbow sightings.
Boquete is overflowing with things to do for those who live and vacation there.
- Thermal springs
- Archeological remains of the ancient Indian cultures
- Jazz & Blues Festivals
- Flower Festivals
- Fantastic bird watching
- Zip line tours under the canopy of its jungles.
- Vibrant theatrical community
- Only an hour from the beach
These activities are one reason Boquete is so popular among retirees from the USA, Canada, and Europe.
It has about 20,000 inhabitants, including an ex-pat population which has grown dramatically over the past 10 years.
As a result, the activities and businesses in Boquete are more geared toward the ex-pat community than in other parts of Panama. Boquete
