  • Come and visit this area of the country. It is so good to be up in the hills and the mountains to breath fresh air and to do a zillion hikes. There are many hotels in Boquete and also some in Volcan. ...  more »
  • The predisposition we are very proud of our Altiva province and is not in vain since gap leaves you amazed with its beautiful landscapes and its sudden bajareques and Rainbow. Visit gap, no matter the time of year you will find the adventure you are looking for. Among its prominent attractions such as the international exhibition of flowers and coffee each January invite you to enjoy the beauty of Panama. Whenever I visit it I enjoy strawberries with cream, yogurt, coffee and many more to discover once you get in the picturesque Valley bordered by the stunning Caldera River and the impressive Volcan Baru. I recommend you take the best photos from the Cefati entering gap.

  • Parc national golf di chirique this island range you go through your with a taxi boat from boca chica to abandon This costs about $3 per person. At the time that you are on the island there is a Madam at the top of the stairs that says you have to pay $5 or something in the restaurant may buy. The trail is very muddy but was to do with slippers. You should be fine then. It had been raining the day before though. You should know that there are many animals on the island life including 2 dangerous snakes. We knew this but the question is what you should do if you encounter the snakes. The monkeys were sitting at the beginning and you hear them ROAR. We are engineering all the way to the beach of Catalina gone but have previously taken a path per down. We had heard that you could here snorkeling, had everything taken away but we could find no snorkel spot. the water in the Bay was very delicious. You can find the route on google maps. Nice to have done.
