Sadly, the tour officially ended today after a final morning meeting. I spent the rest of the day walking around Boquete doing some SHOPPING.

There are about 19,000 residents around Boquete, but the actual town is fairly small.

The single bridge into town over the Caldera River:

The town square in the middle of Boquete, a perfect spot to sit and watch the world pass by:

One of my stops was the new library in Boquete. It opened in 2012 and is very impressive for the size of the town:

Outside of downtown, Boquete is rural:

Finally, that evening I went to see a play presented by the local theater group. It was a lighthearted music-comedy written by two Boquete residents called “Postcards from Paradise.” I thought they did a great job affectionately poking fun at their new lives in Panama.
