The one we will do, as all trails in Boquete are, will be on a slight slant. I always enjoy the highlands of Palmira as it has much flora and fauna (in this case birds) to see no matter what time of the year it is. Pack: rain gear (essential), water, cap/hat, camera, binocs (birding), wear sunscreen, bug spray. Wear hiking shoes or gym shoes with good outer sole treads and bring along your hiking sticks (I have some to loan out). Nature walks are all about finding the unusual. See you on the trail....
