I have some questions about relocating to Boquete.
Could you please post my inquiry and ask your reader if they could give us
We are considering relocating to Panama from the US Virgin Islands (which is becoming super expensive and a difficult commute for my wife). We have a 5 year old daughter and my wife commutes to Houston Texas three to four times a month. Boquete sounds like paradise and certainly is my choice.
However, Panama city is the easier commute for my wife and I am told that the schools in Panama city are much better for my daughter than Boquete/David.
I would like to get first hand information on the advantages and disadvantages of living in Boquete vs Panama City. I also understand that David is the center of the area and that it is at least 45 minutes from Boquete and not an easy drive.
1) Does anyone do that daily commute for school?
2) How would you compare the schools in Panama City to Boquete.
3)How difficult is it to do a weekly commute from Boquete to Panama City’s main airport?
I am retired and am not concerned about the remoteness or commute,( just give me the great weather, air, coffee and fresh fruit) so I guess the final question is
4) Is the superior weather and produce off set the commute and quality of schools?
By the way
Our family had a short 4 day visit to Panama and mainly saw Panama City (where our host lived-Las Cumbres) and the Pacific coast. particularly like Coronado. Next visit hope to be David and Bouquete.
