The most southwestern province of Panama is located 275 miles from Panama City, a six-hour drive and a mere one-hour flight. Chiriqui is an area with a rich bio-diversity. Highlights include La Amistad National Park, jointly managed by Panama and Costa Rica, and the Baru Volcano from where, in a clear day, you can see both oceans.

The area might be somehow compared to Monteverde in Costa Rica. Average stay is two to three nights.
