  1. I have only been there for the day and it is a great place to get away. The setting is tranquil, the pool is refreshing (inner tube and noodles provided) and there is a poolside bar for both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as chaise lounges and tables and chairs. There is a bbq and you can bring food to cook or just a picnic lunch. There are also trails to explore and the banks of the Caldera to enjoy. Frank is a great host and it is well worth the $10 per person daily fee.
  2. BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND, and in honor of the Flower and Coffee Festival, CHOX offers our incredible Coffee Bar. Made from gourmet Pacamara coffee beans grown right here in Boquete, this gastronomic delight has the texture and mouthfeel of a fine chocolate bar, but it is unique in that we substitute coffee beans for cacao. It’s the cup of coffee you eat. Anyone can put coffee flavor into a chocolate bar but only CHOX brings you the 100% Panamanian coffee bar. Bajo Boquete, next to Senor Gyros. Tuesday 12:30-5:00; Wednesday thru Saturday 10:30-5:00. Closed Sunday and Monday.
  3. Last year, they re-engineered traffic on the hill descending from CEFATI during the fair, such that in the evenings you could only go downhill into Bajo Boquete. Does anyone know if that will be case again this year? If so, it would be nice to know the days and hours.
  4. If you ordered a chocolate Christmas tree from CHOX, they will be available during regular business hours for pickup at the shop next week (no Tuesday market deliveries). They are $18.95 each and we don't have the capability to accept credit or debit cards. We will not have extras for sale at the shop, so please only count on purchasing the number you ordered. Stop in at your convenience: Tuesday 12:30 - 5:00, Wednesday thru Saturday 10:30 - 5:00 .
  5. Due to incredible response, CHOX is no longer taking orders for chocolate Christmas trees. Orders this year far exceeded last year's and we have been working overtime to accommodate the requests! The trees for orders that have already come in will be available next week (Tuesday through Saturday) for pickup and we will be sending an email reminder to those on the list. Thank you so much for your interest!
  6. Unless Fred gets there first, which is usually the case for me because I can only go on Sunday or Monday.
  7. I saw the Swanson 12-packs of chicken broth 2 weeks ago.... now, fresh artichokes would be nice!
  8. Shawarma con cordero - will visit soon!!! thanks.
  9. I had the same experience as Judy did, when I returned on October 8. I was in the residents' line and was fully fingerprinted there. No one said to me or the people I was travelling with that we needed to go to the visitors' line. Even with this new procedure, the residents' line was a breeze to get through, compared to the visitors' line!
  10. I stopped into Romero this evening, as I was early for a dinner with friends at TOCO Madera and was hoping that portobello mushrooms had miraculously appeared, despite nearly no produce the last time I was there. (Plus, I was out of vodka). I was aghast to find that the store was fully stocked again. At least the produce sections were fully stocked and the rest of the place appeared to be as well, though I didn't spend much time assessing the situation after grabbing mushrooms and vodka.
  11. Sure coulda used that 2 weeks ago!
  12. The other one I have seen a truck for is Tecsan The phone number painted on the truck is 722-2662.
  13. thanks to those who suggested batteries, but getting new batteries was the first thing I did. Regulator is also brand new, after battery replacement didn't work (and the regulator seemed loose no matter how I re-seated it after taking it off). Someone (no expert) who looked at it today said that it may need cleaning in the line since it seems not enough gas is getting through to ignite. Who knows? Having exhausted the tank, regulator and battery issues, I'm calling Millo tomorrow. Funny thing is several people have told me they had the same problem and the solution for each turned out to be different. I guess these heaters have several problems.
