  • A nice jungle hike with some steep sections. However, there are not many great viewpoints given the dense foliage.  more »
  • Very nice walk we left by car from Boquete to the house of the keeper At the start of the descent always of the descent (we already think of the return!!!) Then enter the beautiful equatorial forest!!! Rather flat Then a very steep climb with uneven wooden stairs after 2 hours 30 hours picnic market on a small rest area The sky covered and we decided to go back Nice rather tiring ballad that we did both We created dared 2 pairs in all and for everything Especially no guide it is not necessary No quetzales or any other animal for that matter!!! August 28 ideal temperature no rain!

  • The best path I have walked in Boquete, the entrance is free for everyone
  • It's a good hike for someone looking for a nice variety. The drive up is almost as enjoyable ! It's nice interacting with the locals that live up there, they always welcome a smile and a wave.
