Boquete Panama

Boquete Valley

In a beautiful valley in the highlands of Chiriqui province in Panama lies the village of Boquete. Beautiful mountains surround it and the Boquete River flows through the center of the valley and the village.

Boquete is called the "Valley of the Flowers and Eternal Spring". Beautiful flowering vegetation is abundant throughout the village and in the modest to luxurious home gardens that give Boquete its unique charm and is a favorite vacation destination for Panamanians...we have provided a list of lodging accommodations in Boquete, some with virtual tours, so make sure you have reservations.

 

Boquete highlands waterfallThe land is lush and the weather is pleasant year-round due to its location in the high valley. The people are friendly, amenities are plentiful, the beauty is endless and the serenity is timeless.

Boquete was founded in 1911 and in Spanish, the word ‘Boquete’ means a gap or opening. It was precisely this gap in the Continental Divide that provided travelers, in the 1850’s, a more northerly short cut to the Pacific, en route to the goldfields around San Francisco.

The first explorers, who included the Swiss, Yugoslavs, Swedish, Germans and North Americans returned to settle in Boquete.

A Residential Home on a Boquete Hillside
Boquete is fast becoming a most desirable place to retire. 

Volcanic soil predominates the area, having once emanated from the now dormant, Volcan Baru. Otherwise, the highlands around Boquete comprise colluvial and sedimentary soil.



The indigenous people, the Ngöbe-Buglé, or Guaymies, live in their nearby Comarca and in the hills around Boquete. They supply the low-cost labor required by local coffee farms and plantations.
 

Rio Cochea Boquete Panama
Two rivers run through Boquete; the Rio Cochea, and the Rio Caldera, which flows through the town center. Their waters provide sustenance for an abundance of oranges, grapefruit and other local fruits and flowers, including the ubiquitous novia (impatiens), lily, hibiscus, orchids, carnations and sunflowers, among others.
