There are a lot of rafting companies in Panama. However, a lot of the local rivers have become unnavigable because of the hydroelectric plants so the rafting companies mostly drive you over to the Costa Rican border where there is a big river called Chiriqui Viejo (an hour and a half away from Boquete by car), but I have heard rumors that they are going to take that away because of the hydroelectric plants. The need for electricity versus the need for the rivers is a big controversy here in Panama.
 
Some people also go ocean kayaking. The nearest beach to Boquete where you can swim and go kayaking is Playa Barqueta, which is around 50 minutes away from Boquete by car.

Boquete white water rafting Panama – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingKayaking and whitewater rafting are two of the most popular active outdoor adventures offered in the Boquete area due to the many rivers found in the area.
 
During the rainy season (May through November) and the early part of the dry season (December and early January) the local waterways provide world class rafting and kayaking opportunities and whitewater enthusiasts from around the world converge in Boquete to experience the thrill of conquering the local rivers.
 
For the less adventurous, the summer months of February, March and April offer challenging but much less difficult, but still thrilling, whitewater tours.
