During our 3 weeks in South America, we saw one lawnmower in operation at a hotel. Otherwise almost every trimming job, even controlling tree overgrowth over roadways, was completed manually with a machete. We gathered that it was a conscious effort to not replace people’s jobs with machinery.

I do hope you enjoy my work.

Panama’s western city of Boquete, just 30 minutes from David, the capital of Panama’s Chiriquí Province, is nestled among the country’s most mountainous region, at 1,200 meters (3,600 ft.). Situated between the Caldera River, which lies to the east, and Baru Volcano to it’s west, Boquete enjoys a comfortable year-round climate ideal for active retirement living and outdoor adventure seekers alike- birding, hiking, mountain biking, rafting, etc. In addition, the near perfect weather and rich, fertile soil has created an ideal setting for floral exportation and coffee growing.
