Backpacking through Panama can be extraordinary if you know the best places to go. Here are some of the best gems in the country to head for if you’re a backpacker looking to get the most out of your experience.
Mountains of Coffee
Located in the mountains of the Chiriquí Highlands is a quaint village known as Boquete. Quiet and peaceful, Boquete is popular among retirees, and with good reason. The gorgeous landscape of coffee plantations surrounded by mountains is home to one of the top three private gardens in the world; it’s called Mi Jardin es Su Jardin. Ample opportunities for hiking as well as cozying up and relaxing with a cup of Panamanian coffee make Boquete an incredible place to backpack through. You can also expect exceptionally delicious, world-class food.
