The Chiriqui region
Puerto Armuelles is just 5 miles (8.0 km) from the border with Costa Rica as the crow flies yet the actual border crossing lies 21 miles (34 km) away. David the capital of Chiriquí Province is about 60 miles (97 km) away. Panama City is some 235 miles (378 km) way or approximately 6 – 8 hours drive on the Pan American Highway. Puerto Armuelles most famous citizen is Omar Moreno who was a baseball outfielder from 1975-1986 in the U.S. The name, Puerto Armuelles, was given to the city in honor of one of the heroes of the Coto war, Tomás Armuelles, member of the Panamanian Defense Forces (PDF) who died in an accident on March 18, 1921, during the Coto War between Panama and Costa Rica. The former name of the city was "Rabo de Puerco" or "Pigtail". Google earth has as of April 2008 updated images of Puerto Armuelles to a much clearer image. The image shows from the bridge entering town all the way down the coast past the oil port terminals. Although most of the image is empty ocean any clear picture of the main parts of Puerto Armuelles are a blessing.
Once the center of a thriving Banana economy, Chiquita Banana i.e. United Fruit Company sold its unprofitable Pacific division which was based in Puerto Armuelles since 1927 to a cooperative of banana workers in 2003. Striking workers and other such problems with employees sped the demise of Puerto Armuelles relationship with United Fruit Company.
