The fabulous coast of the Chiriqui province is attracting ever more attention. Development began a few years ago in the Boca Chica area. A handful of small hotels appeared and a good road was built. River estuaries, mangroves, peninsulas and bays with white sand beaches make the coastline interesting and islands abound just offshore.
There are now signs that the whole coast down to the Azuero Peninsula will open up. A Californian company has just begun selling lots on a property at Natá de Tolé about 60 km east of Boca Chica. Their development is called Vida Nueva.
