Boquete is a small town on the Caldera River, in western Panama. The surrounding Chiriquí Highlands are home to coffee plantations and the Barú Volcano National Park, to the west. Highlights in the park include the towering Barú Volcano and Los Quetzales Trail, which offers sightings of the elusive quetzal bird. North of town, the Bajo Mono Loop drive has expansive views of the forest.

Hi!  I couldn't figure out where to post this.  I am seeking a caregiver (pref couple) who would like to live on Isla Solarte in Bocas del Toro.  A very nice newer apartment is rent-free in exchange for caring for an elderly lady, cooking, light housekeeping.  English is helpful. If anyone is interested, please email me at ruparr2@hotmail.com.

Double bed metal frame needed by paralyzed local man

We have a member of the Handicap Foundation who is sleeping on a mattress on the floor. This guy is paralyzed from the waist down and has a colostomy bag which should hang below his kidneys. With his current situation, that is difficult to achieve. We would love the donation of any kind of bed frame -- metal or wood -- that would fit a double mattress. If you have something like this, please email me -- pjbarrett@aol.com. Thanking you in advance.
