Panama

Photo of Panama

Most people think Panama and think only of the canal - and it is precisely this way of thinking that makes Panama an untapped resource. With the same kinds of attractions and features as its Central American neighbours - delicate white beaches, grand colonial architecture, sizzling nightlife and rainforests teeming with creatures, Panama has all the regional charm without the massive hoards of tourists. La Palma boasts the best of Panama's national parks and in the surprisingly cosmopolitan Panama City, remains of colonial buildings stand side-by-side with skyscrapers.

Boquete, Panama and Agri-Tourism

Over the past few years, the charming little village of Boquete, in the mountain highlands of Panama, has become an expat haven. To accommodate all the new arrivals, developments have sprung up all over the valley. Many of the coffee farms have been sold to make way for development. And then BOOM, La Hacienda Esmeralda coffee takes first place by the Specialty Coffee Association of America, and snags $130 a pound green at auction. Panama coffee has hit the International market by storm. The coffee that made this incredible buzz is a variety called Geisha. Not a new variety, originally from Ethiopia. But the micro-climates in Boquete and the different processing have made it unique to Panama. Now, all the coffee farmers are excited, everybody is planting a little Geisha on their farm hoping to be the next “Best in the World”. www.portfolio.com/culture-lifestyle/culture-inc/food-drink/2007/09/13/Most-Expensive-Coffee
