Chiriquí Highlands image

In western Panama, the highlands of Chiriquí have a wonderful spring climate. There are two national Parks -La Amistad and Barú, home to the extinct Barú volcano (the highest point in Panama at 11,300ft, where on a clear day both the Pacific and Caribbean coasts can be seen).

Boquete is the main town, with views over the surrounding coffee plantations and cloud forests, home to extensive birdlife including the elusive quetzal (best chance of seeing one is from November to February). The area is also excellent for rafting, kayaking, golf and riding. Overland connections to Costa Rica are possible.
