Nature hiking is not about rushing to the end, but more about looking at what surrounds you, relaxing and learning more about Boquete's natural beauty. We hike "Off the Beaten Path" it's the best way to hike and to take in nature.
This Wednesday 11/29 is for the intermediate to advanced hiker. We’ll meet at the Boquete Library located in Bajo Boquete along the main road leading into town at 8:30 AM., carpooling from there to a side road off the Jaramillo loop (on the Hotel Oasis side).
When we hike down this road and back, we’ll see Lucero and if we’re lucky may even see the Pacific. The road is called the La Estrella/ El Valle. It’s not too bad of a gravel road with lots of up and down but no extended periods of either. Lots of fun sites and good company.
This is a gravel road so wearing shorts are fine, if you prefer. Bring water, raingear, bug spray, wear sunblock and a snack.
Do what you feel comfortable with and come join the fun.
See you on the trail.
We meet at different locations twice a week. Wednesday for the intermediate to advanced hiker, EZ Friday is for the beginner, even for the advanced hiker and especially for the nature lover, birder and photographer.

What does nature "hiking off the beaten" mean? No hikes on asphalt, we hike where the guides don't take the visitors 95% of the time, we hike in the surrounding hills of Boquete and in rainforest area - even during the rainy season.
