Hearing reports of roads being blocked in Chiriqui...is it s

Just heard road closings in Chiriqui very recently. We Are planning a trip to Boquete on Feb 25 th and are becoming concerned. Would love to hear how locals are viewing this and if we should postpone our trip.

Yes, it is true. A group of about 200-Bugle Ngobe Bugle closed off a section of the Pan- American Highway on the borders of Chiriqui and Veraguas for about an hour on Friday afternoon, February 17.

The blockade held up passenger and cargo transport heading for Chiriqui on the eve of Carnival. Indigenous demonstrators shouted slogans, claiming that the government is delaying the ongoing dialogue with members of the Coalition for the Defense of Natural Resources and People's Rights and the Ngäbe Bugle.

Postpone your entire trip to Panama? Even if roads were blocked you could always fly to David to go to Boquete.

Hard to say how the time until you arrive will be for demonstrations; just stay posted there will be updates on here. Right now all is quiet.
