Другие важные подробности
Although just 8.9 degrees above the equator, at 1,085 meters (3,560 ft.), the town of Bajo Boquete is cool, when compared to the nearby city of David. A 37 km. four-lane highway connects David, the capital of Chiriqui province, with Boquete.
About 22,000 people live in Boquete district. Boquete town is spectacularly set in a lush, green valley with the Central Cordillera (mountain range) just north of the town. Boquete is offers plenty of fresh air, clean drinkable water, an ideal year-round, humidity-free climate. Always green, with plenty of flowers, and with year-round temperatures that range between 18C (64F) and 28C (82F).
Boquete's coffee benefits from the ideal climate; grown in rich volcanic soil, it has been rated among the best in the world. Oranges and other tasty local fruits grow in abundance too, and there are plenty of fresh, locally-grown, quality vegetables as well.
The rush of ‘dias feriadas’ or holidays, start off with a bang. There are 3 in November alone… November 3, the celebration of Panama´s separation from Colombia; November 10th, called the Primero Grio de Independencia (mainly celebrated on the Azuero Peninsula), and then November 28th, when Panama celebrates its’ Independence from Spain. Big parades, many bands in Boquete.
Mother’s Day comes in early December, followed a couple of weeks later by Christmas and New Years´Eve. Don’t look for anyone in the bars until after midnight, as most Panamanians stay at home with the family, to celebrate the arrival of the New Year; then go out after midnight till way past dawn.
In 2015, Friday, January 9th is Martyr’s Day, mid-January sees Boquete's annual Coffee and Flower Fair.
February, March and April see revolving dates centered around the Lenten season. Carnival (Carnavales) February 13 till February 16th, 2015 and Easter (Semana Santa) April 3rd till April 6th, 2015). In mid-March the Feria International San Jose-David runs in near by David.

* Soothe your soul in the warm Pacific waters at Las Lajas (1 hr. 50 minutes from Boquete… and/or Playa La Barqueta, 1 hr. away. These beaches are sandy, but lack the shelter of palm trees. Las Lajas offers a few ‘primitive’ places to eat and stay. La Barqueta, although closer to Boquete, is a bit sterile, with few facilities.
* Travel to Volcan and further up the ‘other’ side of Volcan Baru. Enjoy a meal at the restaurant in the Los Quetzales resort. See Panama’s breadbasket, and take in spectacular views of crops grown straight up a mountain-side.
* For a view at how chaotic a border can be, travel to Paso Canoas, the principle entry point for goods (and tourists) arriving from next door Costa Rica. Lots of ‘duty-free’ shops who deal in either dollars or colones.
* Visit Los Cangilones in Gualaca. Unique rock formations provide a great opportunity for kids and adults to jump into the warm water pools below.
65% of Panama remains forested. That wasn’t always the case, but now, reforestation is taken seriously. The area around Boquete features a multitude of birds and butterflies. Often sighted are toucans, quetzals, the harpy eagle (our national bird), the king vulture, and hummingbirds. Birds are most frequent around dawn. Butterfly sightings begin right outside your cabin; others around our pool.
This country is an entomologist’s delight. Because of its location between the America’s, Panama presents more varieties of insects and birds than any other place in the western hemisphere.
