Great hike; if you want to go all the way to the top you should start early (6 km one way, but a constant up, so about 3 hours are being recommended). You can also always start and turn around mid-way. The path soon takes...More
We did this hike in mid April, no guide, from Boquete up to Mirador las Rocas Lookout point and back, and it was probably one of the best hikes we did during our stay.
Initially we wanted to do the hike from Cerro Punta straight...More
We had a great hike along the Sendero Los Quetzales. We left a car at the Boquete side around 6:30 am and drove with friends to the Volcancito side, which took about two hours, setting off on the hike at around 10:00 in the morning....More
Fantastic hike and trail for those who want a good workout. It is slated as being about 7 km long but my Fitbit clocked me at 19,000 steps, 140 flights of stairs (1400 feet of altutude gain and loss) and over 7 miles of hiking....More
We hiked 22km in Torres de Pania and this 12km terrain made that hike seem easy. There had been rain before we arrived and the trail had a considerable amount of very wet mud and standing water. The tree roots, fallen trees, soupy mud, steep...More
It was difficult to any great description on this trail and everything I did read, regarded it (the entire traverse) as not too difficult. After talking to the locals, they agree that this trails is much more difficult than is lead to be believed. Leaving...More
We hiked this trail with a group of 13 including the guide. It was a sunny day but had rained the entire previous week so the trail was slick in spots. There is a lot of up and down and some of our group of...More
One of my favourites trails to Birdwatching. It has all levels of dificulty, from flat paths, to heavy hills, but every part is possible if you take it with calm, have good trekking boots, trekking poles, enough water, and medium to good physical conditions. Its...More
This is a neat and tidy trail running along the side of Vulcan Baru. It is a bit easier to hike when it hasn't rained for at teat 3 days. It is fun to do with or without a guide... although you will probably be...More

Our guide was also Jason Lara, and he was superb. Super enthusiastic, great English, knows birds and the places they are likely to be found, and will do anything he can to make sure you have the kind of experience you want to have. We also wrote a separate, more detailed review of his service. It's true that you don't need a guide, but you are likely to see way more wildlife, etc, if you do.
sorry but we can't find their card.....we booked a nice married couple recommended by the hotel, casa grande bambito. Carolina at the front desk is very helpful and perhaps can help you.
enjoy the trek.....
