Boquete Adventure

What a relief to head to Boquete after 5 days in Panama City and Boca Chica. Here in the cloud forest the temps drop though the humidity stays high. Boquete is your adventure center. The surrounding mountains are perfect for hiking galore, biplane, hanging bridges, ATV, whitewater rafting and more!

I headed up to Boquete Tree Trek for a hike on the hanging bridges. The total route is about 2 miles with 6 hanging bridges. The hike itself is a nice little hike with lots of up and down on rough trails but take your time and you’ll be just fine. Ensconced in the jungle you’ll find a wildlife haven and from the vantage point on the bridges you’ll have magnificent views of Volcan Baru. This area of Amistad National Park is one of the best places in Panama to see the Resplendent Quetzal.

After the Hanging Bridges I got a quick peak into the Rum center on the property. The sugar cane is harvested at lower elevations and aged here in Boquete, the higher elevation brings something new to the rum - the 1669 on the bottle refers not to the year but to the elevation (in meters). If you have time (and are not traveling with children) schedule a tasting along with your other activities.

Tree Trek also has a rich history of coffee growing and has recently established itself as the only place where tea is grown in Panama. Along with the hanging bridges you can schedule a zipline or coffee, tea or rum tour. Spend just a few hours to a full day here!
