    Nature hiking is not about rushing to the end, but more about looking at your surroundings, 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 Friday 12/08, meeting time 8:30 A.M. at Plaza San Francisco in front Canasta Basica. PSF is located in Alto Boquete along the highway going to David. We leave at 8:35 carpooling to the La Estrella Represa, the water reservoir in the Lucero area. This will be a 2 hour hike on a level dirt path, a beautiful quiet area along a channel and possibly see some waterfowl. Pack bug spray, rain gear, water, binocs & camera. No need to RSVP - just show up. 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. A few photos from Alto Boquete hike. Below cute colorful tiny beetle.

    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.

  6. Well it's been a busy month in Boquete with Panama's Patriotic Holidays. More is to come. Our mayor announced the last two weeks of the month including this weekend will be filled with many cultural events. Beginning this Friday or Saturday at 5 P.M. in the main park, we gringos have named Central Park located across from the Restaurante Baru. There will be of Tipico Folkloric Dancing groups from all over the country and from other Latin American countries with the women in their Polleras (traje tipico). This is not to be missed! Another event taking place this weekend on Sunday Boquete's own Cabalgata (horse parade) riding down main street and to top it off hundreds of bands marching in Boquete town probably happening on the 29th. which is Independence Day from Spain. Wow! How exciting is this. Remember to do all your shopping in the morning before 10 A.M. as there will be much traffic going into Bajo Boquete and in town, as well driving out of Bajo Boquete early evening and later. Enjoy Panama and it's culture.

    This EZ Friday 9/22 meeting 8:30 A.M. in front of Mort's Bakery located in Plaza San Francisco, Alto Boquete along the highway going to David. At 8:35, we carpool a short distance to begin our walk in the Samboni community in Alto Boquete. We walk in hidden portion in this community where orchid plants and air plants thrive on trees, where the Rio Caldera flows below and where it is peaceful and quiet. We may even hike down to the river this time. Remember to pack rain gear, water, cap/hat, bug spray, wear sunblock and take along binocs and camera. Hiking shoes are the best shoe to wear while hiking on Boquete's old country dirt stoney roads, gym shoes with a good outer sole treads are ok. Bring along your hiking sticks (I have some loan). See you on the trail....
