Chiriqui is Panama's province with the highest mountains. There you can climb extinct Volcan Baru, with an elevation of 3,375 mts (11,072 fts) above sea level. From its summit, in a clear day, both oceans can be observed and it is the only place where you will find in Panama natural icing(early cold mornings).
Boquete with an average elevation of 1,200 mts ( 4,000 fts), is Chiriqui's most charming town in Panama. Due to its relaxing environment, it was chosen by International Living for three consecutive years as the best place to retire worldwide.
The average temperature is 20 degrees C/ 75 F. Temperatures are mild year round. When you go to the highest points expect temperatures to decrease and reach 10 degrees C.
Due to Chiriqui's Highland pleasant temperatures and fertile soils traditionally the area has been devoted to growing vegetables, coffee, and flowers. It also has many dairy farms.
In the last decade, due to its topography and natural beauty, preserved by national parks (Volcan Baru and La Amistad) a fertile territory for adventure tourism has evolved.
River rafting, zip lines, cloud forest hikes, mountain biking, and many other activities are available, as well as relaxing trips to coffee, dairy, and flower farms, and sightseeing trips.
In Boquete there is something for everyone, from families, to couples, to friends.
