Boquete is located in the mountains of western Panama. It takes 1 hour to get to the beaches at the Pacific coast and 3.5 hours to arrive at the Caribbean coast in the north. It is surrounded by a tropical rainforest. There are around 20,000 people living in Boquete, which originally descended from the Indians, Spaniards and North Americans. This cultural mix can also be found in the buildings and landmarks of the city. Boquete is considered as the capital of eco-tourism and the region's coffee beans are known as some of the best ones in the world. In this area there is a cool and very unpredictable climate with usually 16 to 28ºC. Sunny and rainy days alternate in short distances and often there are large temperature changes. In Boquete and the surrounding area there is plenty to do, such as rafting, hiking and trekking, mountain biking, coffee tours and horse riding.
