  1. Today (April 7) News.Boquete sent out a translation of the official government policy concerning both drivers licenses and car plates that could not be renewed because of the shutdown.. You can subscribe to these news releases coming directly into your email inbox by sending your complete name to news.boquete@gmail.com. See the topic here:
  2. This is a google translation of the notice the mayor has posted on his facebook page: As of the date, the safe-conducts and circulation permits granted in the Boquete district that do not specify the date, time and reason for their circulation, are suspended. In the same way, as of the date, new safe-conduct requests will not be accepted both in the Mayor's department and in the Houses of Community Justice and Peace. Only those given by MIDA and municipal officials may circulate.
  3. It with sadness and total shock that we learn of the death of Pat Carter from corona virus while she was in the U.S. Pat was a resident of Jaramillo Centro and lived near her son Scott and daughter in law Holly. Pat was a great friend of the homeless dogs and also a member of the Boquete Chicas club. RIP in Pat Carter. This is a photo of her toasting one of her adopted street dogs.
  4. My handyman and I just went to Ivan's to buy some plumbing parts and were surprised to find both the grocery store and the hardware store closed before 3 PM today (Tuesday). My handyman just called Ivan who told them he closed today and doesn't know when he will re-open because people were saying they got the virus in his store. This is ironic because the employees of Ivan were the first ones to put on gloves and masks and wall off the cashier with heavy plastic.
  5. Gago in Alto Boquete has become a partial substitute for Price Smart for me. Their fresh vegetables are priced equivalent or even lower than Price Smart and I've even found decent boxes of red wine cheaper than the Clos 3-pack. Also, City Mall next door to Price Smart has cleaning products priced well below Price Smart. I'm talking about bleach, laundry detergent, lquid for cleaning floors, etc. Right now, if it wasn't for dog food, I wouldn't be going to Price Smart.

  8. I was surprised to find Cascade dishwasher liquid at Ivan's grocery store. Also, I wish Price Smart would start selling the big blocks of pepper jack cheese again. it's been about 8 years now. I also miss the lasagna which was called Michaelangelo šŸ¤¢

We've priced this set to sell quickly -- $450 Email Beverley at beverleym@aol.com or WhatsAp text her at 6449-6215.
  12. There is a Chicago based 501c3 that was created just to funnel funds into Panama to assist local Boquete charities. The cost of filing the annual IRS return has become so much the charity is in danger of shutting down. It does a lot of good for Boquete charities and it would be a shame if it shut down. It would be wonderful if someone who knew how (or could learn how) would step up and volunteer to do the annual return. If this is you or you know somebody, please send an email to me, Penny Barrett at pjbarrett@aol.com or WhatsAp me at 6510-8934. Thank you very much.
  13. Lots of BoqueteƱos don't know that a major tourist attraction takes place twice a day at CEFATI (The tourist center) at the intersection of the David Highway and the Volcancito Road. Every day about 4 Camille Gathercoite takes dog kibble and compost from a local restaurant up to CEFATI. The coati families that live in the ravine know the sound of her car and come running up out of the ravine. Here's some photos:
  14. I don't read the notice as saying we can get our packages that were en-route to CVT at the new facility in David. In fact, I've heard that the owner of Senderos Plaza is holding the packages because CVT never paid the rent. It would be great if someone who successfully retrieved their package could post here and tell us how they managed to do it.
