The dress code in Boquete is pretty casual. We are up in the mountains so in the mornings and in the evenings, it is a little bit chilly so you will not see people wearing shorts as much as you would at the beach. In Boquete you will commonly see people wearing tee shirts and blue jeans.
When you go into a government building, particularly in David, they do not like you to wear shorts, whether you are a man or a woman. You have to wear long pants or blue jeans will be fine. They do not like flip flops, either. That is the only place that has a dress code. Everywhere else you go is pretty casual. If you want to wear fancier clothes, you can do that, too. Anything goes.
As an example, Bid 4 Boquete sponsors a wine tasting every year and it is probably the biggest social event every year in Boquete. We sell 220 tickets in a week. You will actually see people there wearing anything from shorts and tee shirts to tuxedoes and fancy sequined gowns. You can dress however you want.
The temperature in Boquete is temperate. If you go out at night, you might want to wear a jacket or a sweatshirt because it cools down a little bit but other than that, anything goes. There is no summer wardrobe and winter wardrobe.
