Boquete, Panama, is a small, mountain town located a short bus ride from the large city of David. The town balances the fine line of "small and charming" and "still large enough to have activities and amenities." It is famous for its various treks and hikes that range from the difficult trip of hiking Volcano Baru to easy strolls through jungle paths. Coffee is grown locally and all coffee lovers and caffeine addicts will love the trip to Finca La Milagrosa plantation, which grows fantastic, organic beans. Adrenaline junkies will also be pleased to know that ATV tours, zip lining, and whitewater rafting trips are also available through the various travel agencies.

Due to its small size, the hostels in Boquete are located within walking distance to the central park, the bus station, the large grocery store, banks, laundromats, and any other service or amenity that you may need during your travels. Boquete hostel options vary from large and social; family-style, guest-type houses; and adventure hostels that offer mountain biking, whitewater rafting, volcano hikes, and volcano hot springs excursions.

Getting to Boquete is rather easy and very affordable. Local buses leave David incredibly frequently and are extremely affordable. The trip takes approximately one hour and features lovely scenery and far cooler temperatures than the coast. You can also take direct shuttles from most other tourist destinations in Panama, but they generally cost far more than public transportation.

Boquete is a great destination for anyone wishing to get off the beach and visit a beautiful mountain town with authentic Panamanian culture.
