Panama’s other project is the Green Convention Center, located in Boquete in north-western Chiriquí province.

The impact of even a small convention center on Boquete would be big. Boquete is a well-established major tourist destination. This makes it a favorite of those seeking to blend a quality lifestyle with tourism based business opportunities.

Located in Panama’s coffee-growing highlands, Boquete is halfway between David International Airport on the Pacific Coast, and the Bocas del Toro beaches on the Caribbean.
