Chiriqui Province in Panama is emerging as one of the hottest travel destinations in Central America. Chiriqui boasts of an amazing variety of scenery from beaches, to rivers for white water rafting and kayaking, to high altitude mountains perfect for trekking and climbing, to lush tropical forests where you’ll find exotic flora and fauna. And there’s a lot more to Chiriqui than that.

Chiriqui is located in the western part of Panama between Costa Rica and the Pacific Ocean. This particularly unique terrain gives Chiriqui an ideal climate for agriculture. The highland area, including Boquete, is gifted with fertile soil. All these contribute to an abundant harvest of coffee, oranges, strawberries and vegetables every year. Cattle farms are also very common in Chiriqui.
