Most travelers pass through David, Panama, a large, friendly, albeit ungainly town en route to Boquete and to the nascent beach resorts of the Pacific northwest.
Located about 275 mi/438 km west of Panama City, David has an attractive main square and some good restaurants and stores. David's main tourist attraction is its interesting but small history and art museum, which is housed in a handsome colonial mansion in the old part of town.
Along with archaeological and historical artifacts, mainly from Chiriqui province, the museum has a pleasant garden with herbs and indigenous plants. http://david.chiriqui.org/chidavid-atract.htm.
