El Oasis B&B in Boquete


I was going to a function in Boquete last Friday night and I didn’t want to drive back to David late, so I made reservations in El Oasis B&B.

I paid $45 dollars plus tax and that included breakfast.

To get to El Oasis you cross the downtown Boquete bridge and turn right at the BCP. Down the road on the right is El Oasis.

Saturday morning before we checked out, we spent some time on the patio in the following photo. Continue reading El Oasis B&B in Boquete

File This Under “STUPID”

I spent a couple glorious days in Boquete, which I will write up later.

The “STUPID” reference is related to our return to David around 8:00 PM last night. Before we got to Dolega, we saw flashing lights and a stream of car headlights. The first thought that ran through my mind was that there had been an accident and the road was blocked..

A couple minutes later, I realized that it was a traffic check point and they were stopping all cars going in both directions.

When I got to the officer, he asked to see my drivers license, which I provided. He took it and walked to the back of the car and looked at the license plate. As I have mentioned in previous posts, I am still waiting on the municipal office to get in my January tag.

February 2010 – Robbery in Dolegita

THIS Comment came in today. A rough English translation follows:

Don Ray, My mom lives in doleguita West Avenue 7, David, Chiriqui. On 21 February 2010, the offenders cut the iron railings of the terrace of my mom’s house and got into the house and stole a quantity of personal documents, everything from the kitchen, linen clothes, family memories. And they left the house as if it was an earthquake alarm system destroyed. Already in the neighborhood can not live Doleguita the criminals do not respect private property. My mother was in Panama City at the time of the robbery. And the person or in your house are safe.

I ask the citizenry to be careful in the sector and report Doleguita and not remain silent.

Thanks
