Alto Boquete

Alto Boquete
Boquete, Chiriqui

Alto Boquete is the area of Boquete from just past Dolega coming up from the City of David to the entrance of downtown Boquete at the CEFATI tourist center.  Much of Alto Boquete consists of a high, relatively flat plateau between two gorgeous river canyons with the Caldera River to the East and the Cochea River to the West.

Alto Boquete is still moderately developed with many huge parcels of open land.  Yet, it has seen accelerated building of stores, restaurants, and housing communities since the major expansion of the road between David and Boquete’s downtown was completed.

Alto Boquete is now home to a long list of gated communities and subdivisions.  They range from large developments with many homes to small ones of 20 houses or even less.   Some have luxury houses, some beautiful condos, others have very nice houses of medium sizes, while some have many newly built houses mostly to accommodate hard-working Panamanians who have access to special loan programs that incentivize home ownership.

Alto Boquete has a unique landmark called Panama Faro.  While not by the ocean, the Lighthouse is a fun stop where children can play, one can get a coffee, or take in the beauty all around from the Faro’s observation deck.

Alto Boquete is seeing new restaurants regularly.  Chopsticks offers some excellent Chinese food dishes in the middle of Alto Boquete. Sabroson has built a new location with an event center along with its usual Panamanian fare.

San Francisco Plaza near Boquete Country Club is a great, ground-breaking shopping plaza created by a visionary entrepreneur who saw the growth of Alto Boquete coming.  Others have followed his lead.

At the entrance to Alto Boquete by Dolega, the altitude is about 1,100 feet.  As it reaches the entrance to Boquete’s downtown, it is about 3,500 feet.  It is a particularly sunny area, especially in the “summer” or dry season where it gets less precipitation than the areas north of town.  At this time of year, it can be breezy or windy at times.

Alto Boquete has plenty of neighborhoods with lots for sale outside of planned communities. Often, large homes are alongside smaller and older residences where Panamanians and people of all nationalities peacefully live side-by-side.  Some of the larger, most impressive homes are of wealthy Panamanians who have chosen Alto Boquete as their 2nd home vacation destinations, others are of professionals like doctors for example seeking to commute to nearby David from a cooler climate and others are expats who have chosen Alto Boquete as their new place to live.

The developments and gated communities in Alto Boquete include Boquete Country Club, Boquete Canyon Village, Hacienda Los Molinos, Pino Alto Boquete, Brisas Boquetenas, Emerald Drive, Alto Boquete Condominiums, Los Nances, Mystic Garden, Vista Boquete, Oriana and Bougainvillea Estates.  Each have their own appeal.
