Panama tourism questions – Panama Flights

August 12 2010

“How do we get to Boquete without an overnight stay in Panama City?”

Many guests have asked us about flying from San Jose, Costa Rica to the regional airport in David Panama (closest airport to Boquete) versus flying from Panama City.

The reasoning behind this: Boquete is very close to the Costa Rica border. Guests want to get to Boquete as quickly as possible, without spending a night in Panama City. This is technically an option, but the timing is very tight.

Panama flights leave San Jose for David Panama on: Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 11:00 am local time. So, unless your flight lands in San Jose very early, you’ll still have to spend a night in a big city. Given the choice, I’d rather stay overnight in Panama City than San Jose.

Another option available soon: David Airport Expansion
The David airport is set to undergo a major expansion, which will open up this side of the country to more Panama flights. Copa Airlines recently announced that it will provide service from Tocumen International Airport in Panama City to David, starting the first quarter of 2011. (Right now, travellers have to do a 30-minute land transfer from Tocumen International to the regional airport in Albrook and then take a flight to David.)

Panama homes birdwatching Boquete

A dedicated member of Boquete Garden Inn’s feathered clean-up crew (specialty: muffin crumbs), this little lady decided to build her nest next to our reception area, cutting her commute time in half.

She is currently on maternity leave, but look for her to return in early July.

We’ve been hearing the call of the Squirrel Cuckoo for over a year now, but this is the first time we’ve been able to catch one in a photo. J is still trying to get a great shot of him…but this cuckoo is coy!
