"Starting point" David by kyoub

David Travel Guide: 21 reviews and 13 photos


David is the third largest city in Panama, about halfway between Panama City and San Jose, Costa Rica. It is a rich farming region but not much here of interest to the tourists.
It is more just a place to fly into, grab a car at the airport and drive to some place more interesting.
That is exactly what we did.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:It has an airport
  • Cons:Hot and stickyClose to Boquete
  • In a nutshell:Close to the cool valley
  • Last visit to David: Mar 1998

    Palm-lined beaches look great! Interesting info on Indian tribes and their dwellings.

    Looks like you picked a great airplane for your flight to the outer reaches of Panama - the Canadian-built deHavilland 'Twin Otter' is the world's most rugged bush plane! That is a great aerial photo of the countryside.
