Itinerary

Day One: David - Boquete

Today you will be transferred from your Panama City hotel to the domestic airport for your flight to David. Upon arrival you will be picked up at the airport and transferred to Boquete.

Boquete's surrounding hills and slopes are primarily covered in shade-grown coffee plantations, providing a rich product recognized by international connoisseurs. Coffee is primarily picked by the Guaymi Indians during the months of October through February. Coffee picking season is a festive time and colorfully clad Indian families come from various parts of the province to harvest the coffee cherries.

Boquete is also well known for birding. The town is home to an abundance of birds equal to those found in the cloud forests higher on the mountain. One of the most famous is the Quetzal, the national bird of Guatemala that is nearly extinct there but has found refuge in this area.

Boquete enjoys a comfortable year-round climate ideal for active retirement living and outdoor adventure seekers. Among the numerous activities are hiking, mountain biking, climbing, canopy, and rafting. For the less adventurous, Boquete offers natural hot springs and miles of well marked hiking trails to explore the wonders of the cloud forest.
