I suspect that this unfortunate man was a tourist as most locals know how dangerous the waters of La Barqueta are. There really should be warning signs there.

Very dangerous even for a strong swimmer !  Deep holes and rip currents right next to the shore.   Warning signs (in Spanish and English)  at all beach accesses should be there.   If a person then decides to take the risk, the risk is his.  This is a beach break that is very deceptive, and again....dangerous. A very very sad story.  The man was young an on holiday.  My heart goes out tot he family.

A 59-year-old American citizen who drowned at La Barqueta beach in the Alanje district of Chiriqui on Saturday,  September 12. was a guest at a hotel which reportedly does not have lifeguard services. He was bathing with his brother and a young girl but was dragged under by the strong waves.

The body of Nzhde Emil Khudaverdyan who was born in Iran, but was a naturalized  American was recovered by members of the Joint Task Force.

Sources of the Civil Protection  System (Sinaproc), are said to be worried since a month ago another foreigner who was in the hotel died who apparently does not have lifeguard services, reports El Siglo.
