driver in Almirante

Hello,

Can anyone recommend a driver to take a family of 4 from Almirante to a town near Boquete in late February?

Thanks so much.

What town near Boquete? If you let me know I can try to get you a quote. It would be expensive because the driver would have to go round trip. But we can try! :)

You don't want to take the bus? It will be cheaper. It runs very frequently and costs way less. Just another option.

Well, now I know why you want a driver. :) It is a really pretty area. I'll see what I can do. It is remote.

I had someone but no longer would recommend him. He didn't show up for another rental so I won't recommend him any longer.

I know the hostels in Boquete have shuttle service to Almirante. Have you contacted them to see if they will pick you up. And so do the tour companies; Habla Ya, Bouquete Outdoor Adventures, Boquete Tree Trek. I would check with them.

Where you are going is not near Boquete. To get there from Boquete you would need to go back to David and the go through Volcan. You will have to go through David anyway you go so you should find a taxi from Almirante which is around 100 dollars and the another taxi to your destination. A bus to David from Almirante is 8 dollars and they run all the time.

Hi, My husband and I used a wonderful driver in Panama in January. He is based in Boquete; however, he drove us from Boquete to Los Quetzales. Then a few days later, he returned tand took us to Almirante.

He is Victor Manuel Gomez Castillo. His email is victorgomez1410@hotmail.com; his mobile phone is 65792310.

He does not speak English so I had some wonderful opportunity to practice my Spanish. We thought he was very reasonable and much more comfortable and quicker than taking the bus.

Tell him Sherrie, the older American lady, referred you.
