Chiriqui, Panama

Panama's Highland Region


The province of Chiriqui, located in western Panama, borders to the North on the Bocas del Toro region and to the South on the Pacific Ocean. Chiriqui is easily reached via its local airport in the town of David. Until the arrival of the Spanish Chiriqui was populated by a variety of Indian tribes (Changuinas, Zurias, Boquerones, Buricas, Doraces, Bugabas and Guanacas) that are all grouped together under the generic name “Guaymíes”. Its discovery in the year 1519 is attributed to Gaspar de Espinosa from Spain and the official province of Chiriqui was created on May 26th 1849 during a time when Panama was part of Colombia. Chiriqui’s economy is mostly based on agricultural production and life stock and it is the main provider of foods to the rest of the Republic of Panama. Tourism is gaining in importance as more and more visitors discover the natural beauty of the region, making it an attractive destination for national and international travelers alike.
