I was driving by INFOX this week and noticed it was not there anymore. I had hoped they had just moved, but I contacted Melissa and she confirmed that they have closed.
With the influx of competition in Plaza El Terronal, more small firms will have trouble.
I received the following request to post from a Chiriquí Chatter reader.
From……: Steve Ferguson
In this new financial world order I have a far out request. I would like to trade a 35 acre residential parcel in an upscale gated community in Bayfield, Colorado USA for a home/acerage in the David, Boca Chica or Las Lajas area. If any of your reader would have an interest I would consider all ideas. My development website is www.eaglesridgeatbayfield.com or 970-946-8091.
If you feel this is appropriate for Chiriqui Chatter please feel free to post.
Thanks for your work on the site, I read it often. Still hoping to make the move to Panama.
I had to do some maintenance on a backup PC the other day, which I was selling, and Kelvin King introduced me to Hyper Media. I guess this store has been here a couple of years, but I didn’t know about it. It is sort of David’s answer to YOYTEC in Panama city.
Here are a couple photos in the store. Continue reading
I had a lunch date with a friend of mine last Wednesday. I know a lot of gringos meet at Restaurant Park Vista, which is on the second floor at the Iris Hotel, and that was the chosen restaurant

As I was leaving Subway the other day, I saw these three passing out handouts promoting their new 4G service. Everyone knows I can’t pass up an opportunity to take a photo with beautiful Panamanian women it it.
Two of Chiriquí Chatter’s longest term readers have been Jim and Nena of Ft. Worth, Texas. They started reading Chiriquí Chatter when I was living in Boquete and started reading again, after my hiatus, when I restarted my blog in David.
I received an email from Jim a while back telling me that Nena was visiting family in Panama and would like to drop something off for me, when she was in David. I said I would love to meet her and Nena and I made contact and set a time.
We set a time of 2:00 P.M. at McDonald’s last Wednesday. About 1:10 P.M, I received a call from Nena saying that she had picked up her rental car and was going to return to Boquete to pick up her mother. She said she might not be at McDonald’s exactly at 2:00 P.M., but for me please to wait.
I was at McDonald’s at 1:55 P.M. I hate being late and it is a long term habit I have not been able to break, even thought I have lived in Panama about 8 ½ years. I came prepared for a wait and had my iPad to keep me busy. Continue reading
