My wife and I are still planning a move to the Boquete area in about 3 plus years. We know it's early, but we have a dog we plan to bring. I should say he's a member of the family, so we're not about to leave him behind.Our question is, if when we make visits outside the country, is there a place to board our little guy?We would like to think we can have our pensionada visa done in the allotted time, but if we have to leave the country for a short time, we don't want to go through the process…See More

Thanks for connecting. We're looking at hopefully next summer, but so much to learn.

Hello Bob,

My wife and I are members of Boquete Birders and I lead a monthly walk for around town for tourist and begining birders we call the backyard birdwalk.  I think our record species for the town walk is about 53-54.  Panama has 59 species of hummingbirds and we have been lucky enough to have 21 of these visit our feeders.  There is no shortage of birds here and one of the reasons we setted here 6 years ago.  Keep in touch and I'd be happy to point you at some good birding.

Later,

J (Jack)
