The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence has a friend in Boquete.
Boquete is a wonderful place for star gazing. Clear nights here provide minimal light pollution. That translates to amazing star studded skies from your home’s balcony or yard. It’s wonderful to see the Milky Way in all it’s glory. Boquete is a beautiful spot from which to seek E.T or to enjoy the heavens.
