Now known internationally for its fresh mountain air, year-round pleasant temperatures, and large community of North American expats, Boquete has changed rapidly since the start of the century, changing from a humble mountain town, into a humble mountain surrounded by gated communities and estates.

There's still lots to do: take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, shop like a local with Barbara Rabkin Art Studio, get lost in a book at Biblioteca de Boquete, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Pipeline Trail.
