Today we will hike Los Quetzales trail, the famous scenic trail that goes through the Baru Volcano National Park connecting the towns of Cerro Punta and Boquete. This mountain rainforest is part of the Talamanca mountain range, an interesting geological formation that contains incredibly rare flora and fauna, and a combination of good jungle hiking and tropical wildlife.

Early morning we will head to the ranger station at the Baru National Park, from where we will start our epic adventure. This mountain-forest terrain is best suited for experienced hikers, as we’ll be hiking through breathtaking landscapes varying at different altitudes. We may have the opportunity to spot a variety of trees, plants and bird species, including the quetzal and magpie gorgiplateada, amongst many others.

Once we reach the end, transportation will be waiting to take you back to your accommodation.

NOTE: You can hike from either direction, but it is easiest from west to east: the town of Cerro Punta is almost 1,000m/3,280 feet higher than Boquete, so hiking east offers more downhill.
