“The land of eternal spring…”
Known for its ideal climate, lush forest setting, beautiful mountain vistas and the best coffee in the world, Boquete is Panama’s premier destination for anyone looking for a fabulous retirement spot, a great second home or a place to live surrounded by natural beauty.
The mild climate found in Boquete has earned it the nickname “the land of eternal spring”. With year-round daytime temperatures in the low 80 degrees Fahrenheit (26 to 28 degrees Celsius) and nighttime temperatures in the mid 70’s (23 to 25 Celsius), weather here is never a concern. This ideal climate is one of the reasons that over 2,000 international residents call Boquete “home”.
The cost of living is reasonable by most standards and many food items like fresh tropical fruits, locally grown vegetables, a variety of seafood, and farm raised pork and chicken are much less expensive than you find in the United States, Canada and Europe. Taxes are low; insurance (car, home and health) is affordable and energy bills are a fraction of what you probably spend now.
As attractive as the cost of living is to most people considering a move to Boquete, it’s the lifestyle that keeps people here. Moving to Boquete doesn’t mean that you have to give up the things you enjoy doing now. Try a round of golf on two beautiful courses in the area, play tennis, spend an evening with a bridge group, try your hand at the local community theater, go fishing for tuna, marlin or mahi-mahi, take a horse ride into the back country, enjoy a day being pampered at one of the many top quality spas, walk on a nearby beach, work out in a fully-equipped fitness center, hike into the local forests or, for the more adventurous, trek all the way to the top of Volcan Baru (the highest point in Panama) where, if the weather cooperates, you can see both the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans. The possibilities are truly endless.
The picturesque scenery, the affordable cost of living, the many activities in the area and the incredible climate are all good reasons for moving to Boquete. But perhaps the best reason to live here is the sense of community that has developed in Boquete over the past 10 years. From the community theater to the many charitable and volunteer organizations that make a real difference in the lives of both the local population and the recent arrivals, this spirit of community is stronger in Boquete than most places in Latin America and gives real meaning to living here.
Come to Boquete. Experience the quality lifestyle you thought you could never afford and see for yourself what makes this area so special.
