How to get here

We are located in the hamlet of Nueva Suiza between the villages of Volcan and Cerro Punta in the Western highlands of the Chiriqui province. Chiriqui is known as the "valley of the moon" by the Ngobe-Bugle Indians. The Chiriqui province borders with Costa Rica and is where Panama's highest peak, the Baru Volcano, rises to the height of 3,475 meters (11,400 ft). Volcan and Cerro Punta are on the western slope of the Baru Volcano while Boquete is on the eastern slope.
