The Boquete Handbook (2nd Ed) …
All New Second (2nd) Edition! Updated and expanded in Dec 2011
The Boquete (Not for Tourists!) Handbook (2nd Edition) grows out of my experience of living here in Boquete for the past 8 years. The idea for this ebook was to put together a comprehensive, informational Guide that both the residents of Boquete and potential residents could use on an ongoing basis.
You don’t need to be a Boquete expert to live here but if you want help in avoiding costly mistakes, wasting time and endless frustration, you do need the basic info that helps you navigate as we ( the residents) constantly strive to know.
PROCESS - The number one time waster here is not knowing where to go for what. Not knowing“the process” drives everyone crazy. In the handbook you’ll find answers to questions like, Who runs the place ? What is the Government structure? What do the police do & where are they? What to do in an emergency (with contact numbers and tips), plus all your necessary info for Getting around, Visas, Health Options, Property Rights and Process, Construction –tips on Materials, Hiring people, saving $$ with Jubilado discounts, Where to stay, Where to go, What to do, Clubs and a wealth of useful material. (For a more complete list of what’s in the Handbook scroll down).
You don’t have to re-invent the wheel. We have already done that because we live here and have been through it all.
Here’s my guarantee with this PDF ebook – if this handbook can’t answer your particular Boquete question, you can email me directly & I will personally point you to a person or place that can.
So check out the book & buena suerte! See you in Boquete soon!

Also don’t miss our ongoing tips section “Boquete Tips”.
You will find photos and info that you won’t find anywhere else. They may not be sexy, but they will be helpful.When I first came here, like everyone else, I had to spend an inordinate amount of time at the immigration office. It would have been nice to know what the immigration office looked like! ( and the address!!!)
