  1. The BCP: Let's Dispel the Myths and Rumors! If you are new to Boquete or have heard rumors about the BCP, we would like to set the record straight: Is the BCP a business? Yes and No: It's a corporation – Boquete Centro de Eventos, SA - doing "business" as the "BCP." Like any corporation, there are shareholders. However: The mission statement of the BCP is "Enriching the life of the Boquete Community through the Arts, Entertainment, Community Events, and Services." Like all members of the BCP, the board of directors are volunteers in service

  2. Some more information about the covid vaccinations: The vaccine will be distributed and tracked only via MINSA, not by private doctors or clinics. They will do it in 4 groups, starting in another 1 or 2 weeks. People over 60 are in the second group. The Panama Solidario website link does in fact only accept Panamanian cédulas or permanent resident CIP cards, but everyone has the right to receive the vaccine, and MINSA will be setting up kiosks at their facilities to register people with other IDs. The online registration site is mainly to get a head count for Group

  3. We shopped at this wonderful fruit/vegetable stand again yesterday. Getting to be one of our favorite places to purchase great produce. Clean, well displayed items, and the guys working there are helpful, speak English and are so friendly. Best prices in the area. Suggest you arrive early for best selections. (P.S.... I found picture-perfect broccoli and carrots plus onions.) Bananas and papaya ready for eating. Plenty of parking, too !! Good addition to Boquete.

  5. I finally figured out the Ignore Feature on Chiriqui Life. It will be usefull. You can click on your name top right of screen, drop down menu and ignored users if you are bothered or badgered by others desparaging remarks. The owner/administrater can take care of the more offensive sarcasim. Great site Bud. And the ignore feature prevents censoring anyone---- I NOW DO NOT HAVE TO READ THESE DESPARING REMARKS ANYMORE.

  6. Rights of Possession (ROP) or “Derechos Posesorios” may seem a simple way of investment...but they are not. In fact, they are more complicated if you really want to prevent a legal problem in the near future. In order to explain the difference between a property that has ROP and a property that is titled, we must first know how the Panamanian government legally creates a property. In simple words, the land from the beginning belongs to the government of Panama. Then the government "assigns" those rights so that there is supply and demand and the land increases in value as it passes from h

  7. Andrea was a such a good friend and neighbor. She and Don have been a joy to us in our lives here. We miss her and our hearts are broken. Andrea would not want us to be sad but encourage us to love one another and make the most out of our lives. Here in Boquete ( and esp in our little Brisas community) we are such close family. It's been almost 14 years of friendship....a long time !. That closeness is so special . Now that she is gone, we value it all the much more. Goodbye sweet sister. Rest in Peace. we are coming your way soon. Alison, Bill and Weasel

  9. I see that the form asks for a cedula number so I'm assuming that this is a requirement for registration. Since I don't have one yet and the office in PC is currently closed I'm wondering if this is true and if they will accept the permanent residency card number. Anybody know?

  10. I just answered my own question. Instead of filling out the form using English directions, I filled it out using Spanish directions. Magically, Boquete shows up as a district. I was then registered after completing the rest of the form.

  11. Note: In very small print this is written at the bottom of the form: "This form is intended to manage the registration of those people who are interested in being vaccinated against COVID-19. The registry of those interested seeks to facilitate the procedure and logistics in the distribution and application of said vaccines, take the necessary provisions according to the condition of the person, as well as managing the quantities to be distributed by sector and population density. Lack of registration does not imply exclusion in the vaccination process. The information handled by this r

  13. This year, during the past months have been very difficult and challenging period that DogCamp has ever had since we started the lockdown, we had to find a new place, we had to move all our fenced and install in a new place, we had to move all our stuff and the most important, we had to move our rescued dogs to a safe place. But, despite the hard year we have had we are looking to the future with confidence knowing we have a great community, great friends, great volunteers who support this place for rescued animals. A "thank you" is not enough for all the support we received t

  15. Global Bank has a small fee, 10.70 (senior discount) for foriegn check and non jubilado it is 21.40.. I do not have a problem with that. And my U.S. bank account shows the transanction in three days. My U.S. money is released by Global Bank 21 days later. People need to remember where they are. You'll get use to it. $10.70 is much better than using the ATM at 5.25 a pop. Foriegn cards used in the ATM's are now limited to $250.00. One guy wanted argue with me about this the other day. I had just left the bank with $500 taken out. He said I have a Panamanian (Scotia Bank) account and all I can g

  17. We bank at Multibank (the Boquete branch) and are quite happy with the ability to get US funds into our Multibank account, with no fees involved, and completed in five business days. When posting previously about our experience in getting US funds into Panama we have been "blasted". Some people say it is not possible. Well, I no longer try to refute other people's claims. All I can do is to tell you that we can deposit a US check (up to $3,000.00 at a time), and the funds are immediately on deposit, but with a "hold". That "hold" is five business days for us. There are no fees involve

  22. The History of a Little Community Theater Group in the Mountains of Panama! Curtain Up!! Come Play With us! (written and submitted by one of the original founders of the BCP Community theater) In 2005, a small group of newcomers in their new home Boquete , Panama envisioned a Community Theater. They called it Boquete Community Players. Now known as BCP. Many had never had any Theater experience…but now that they were retired, thought they would like to pursue their earlier Dreams. They also wanted to bring theater to their new home Boquete. For a few y
