Snuggled into the side of a volcanic crater, surrounded by lush tropical forest, and home to profusions of multi-hued blossoms, Boquete is nothing if not picturesque…
The climate in Boquete is springlike year-round with temperatures hovering between 65˚F and 75˚F. Nights, especially during the rainy season, can be chilly enough for a sweater or light jacket.
There are several supermarkets, clothing, shoe, and dry goods stores, hardware and agricultural supply establishments, hairdressers, computer and cell phone outlets, real estate offices, a butcher shop, and several banks, including Banco Nacional, Global Bank, Multibank, and more.
Boquete expats embrace their adopted country wholeheartedly and constantly strive to make it a better place, not only for themselves but also for the locals. This is an easy place to become involved with the resident community. Volunteer organizations flourish here and accomplish good deeds year-round, particularly for migrant workers or struggling Ngöbe-Buglé
The ground for expat businesses in Boquete is fertile, and many who own and operate businesses here do well. Restaurants are on every corner and run the spectrum from fondas (local restaurants traditionally run out of homes) to high-end eateries.
Boquete doesn’t have its own hospital yet, but it does have an ambulance and is close to David where hospitals are available. That said, there is no shortage of health care options available in Boquete…
Its upsides are that you’ll live in a lush, natural setting, have access to fresh produce and a cool weather year-round, and get to live overseas but enjoy a sense of familiarity thanks to its deep expat roots. Every time you crest that hill and gaze down upon the scene below, your heart will belong to Boquete all over again.
