The province of Chiriqui is located in the north west of Panama and has some superb hidden gems. The national park of La Amistad is still relatively untouched due to its dense jungle, but it is haven for wildlife and pristine beaches.
The area also has a lot of history as Chiriqui was populated, until the arrival of the Spanish, by different indigenous tribes; Changuinas, Zurias, Boquerones, Buricas, Doraces, Bugabas and Gualacas, which were grouped under the generic name of Guaymies.
The province is surrounded by warm, translucent, tropical waters between the Pacific coast of and the Coiba Island nature preserve of Panama, where, lays the private archipelago of "Las Secas." Consisting of 4 primary and 12 small islands, Islas Secas is nestled among one of the few truly virgin territories left in Latin America, if not the world.
