Welcome to Boquete, home to the Valle Escondido Resort, Golf & Spa. Boquete is located in the province of Chiriquí, which is an indian word meaning “Valley of the Moon.” The Ngobe-buglé indians are the most popular of Panama’s seven indigenous tribes, and they can be seen walking the winding mountain roads or shopping in the village in their original dresses.
Boquete is located on the eastern side of the Baru Volcano (extinct for over 500 years). The area surrounding the volcano became a National Park in June of 1976. People from all over the world come to Boquete to hike the majestic Baru Volcano, the highest point of Panama, which is rising to a height of over 12,000 feet above sea level and where you can see both, the Caribbean Sea & Pacific Ocean at the same time.
The major industries of Boquete are agriculture, ecotourism, and coffee. In recent years, Boquete has become world-famous for producing some of the finest Estate Coffees in the world.
For cultural pursuits, Boquete has its own community theater, the Boquete Community Players, and there is the Boquete Jazz & Blues Festival, and a number of annual festivals and parades.
Valle Escondido Resort is just a ten-minute walk from the rural coffee growing the community of Boquete, Panama. In town, you will find shopping and dining in the dozen or more restaurants catering to the locals and tourist alike.
