Surrounded by the Baru volcano and the central mountain range, Boquete has become a popular destination for those seeking lower temperatures than those found in the lowlands. Its main attraction is the Festival of Flowers and Coffee, which brings nationals and tourists from all over the world every year. The increased amount of immigrants that have decided to retire here has led to the emergence of many hotels and businesses related to golf, rafting, hiking, zip lining, biking and other outdoor activities. Its rivers, mountains, and forests offer a type of paradise different to the tropical environment found in most of Panama.
