About Boca Chica Panama

Boca Chica Panama offers so much to residents and visitors and has become a popular place to visit or to purchase Panama Real Estate for retirement or a second home in Panama. Boca Chica is located in Chiriqui Province--one of Panama’s most diverse provinces with many micro-climates stretching out over the mountain highlands, the midlands where the provincial capital of David is located and the coastal lowlands where the Lost Coast community makes its home. Boca Chica Panama is located in the San Lorenzo district, one of thirteen districts in Chiriqui Panama.

Chiriqui Province is a heavily agricultural province known for producing most of the vegetables consumed in Panama, the world-famous highland coffee from Boquete and also for high quality livestock such as beef cattle and thouroughbred horses. However, tourism, and particularly eco and adventure tourism, makes a substantial contribution to Chiriqui’s economy as well.

One of the most appealing elements of Panama’s geography is the wide variety of micro climates that can be experienced in a very short time. Few places in the world offer a visitor the opportunity to luxuriate in a bathing suit on a pristine beach one day and don a jacket the next day to hike the slopes of a dormant volcano in a cool cloud forest. Of the many attractions in the Republic of Panama, the province of Chiriquí probably offers the most variety for the visitor in a manageable space. From Boca Chica Panama you can be in any area of Chiriqui in about a two hour drive.

Chiriquí occupies the northwest corner of Panama and shares a border with Costa Rica. For outdoor enthusiasts, Chiriquí provides an extraordinary variety of ways to take full advantage of nature’s bounty. It is possible here to fish for record-size Blue Marlin (at Boca Chica Panama) one day and fly fish for trout in a mountain stream (at Bambito Panama) the following day. There are several rivers where the traveler can experience white water rafting comparable to any in the world. And the mountains also offer the exhilaration of a forest canopy zip line tour that would thrill even the most jaded adventurer.

For the avian enthusiast, Chiriquí offers opportunities for bird watching that rival any in the world. More than a dozen hummingbird varieties make their home here and countless variations of parrots. The harpy eagle, national bird of Panama, soars through the canyons of the Chiriquí highlands with majestic grace. The famous Los Quetzales trail goes through the Baru Volcano National Park and connects the towns of Cerro Punta and Boquete. This mountain rainforest is part of the Talamanca Mountain Range, an interesting geological formation that contains unique flora and fauna perfect to harbor highland species of Chiriquí.
