  1. 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.
  2. Mark your calendar. It's lunchtime in Boquete! Join us by emailing in your reservation to the email that's on the announcement.
  3. Mark your calendar. RSVP is required to attend this event. Open to all.
  4. Looks like the makeshift bridge in Palo Alto down from the Tree Trek. That trail (isolated) goes through the rainforest and all the way to Bocas. At this time of the year the Rio Palo Alto is fierce.
  5. "Off the Beaten Path Trekking" Explore, Dream, Discover, on foot with the best pioneer nature trekking group in Boquete. We have explored over 40 trails in this vast and beautiful area throughout the years. Join us every Wed. & Fri. This Week - 8:30 A.M. WED. NATURE HIKING 3+hrs. for Intermediate to advanced hiker, nature lover, photographer. We love breathing fresh air and love being outside! FRI. EZ NATURE WALK 1-1/2 HOUR for Beginners, nature lover, photographer. We enjoy nature! We walk at a steady comfortable pace since, our primary interest is exploring, looking, admiring nature and discovering the unusual whenever the opportunity arises, which it has many times. Each of Boquete's seasons has something new to discover and to teach us about nature. What to pack: during the rainy season (this year until December) need raingear., also pack binocs if you have them, water, sun block, camera, wear hiking shoes or gym shoes with good outer sole treads and hiking sticks, I have some to loan out. Requirements: As always to be in good health and able to keep up with group, though as mentioned, we do not hike at a rapid pace stopping often to take in the scenery or discover something NEW. For more info email jere chica @ gmail .com (no spaces) Slowing down and going on a nature walks/hikes makes one more aware of their surroundings such as the different spice aromas flowing through the air or capturing a butterfly through your camera lens or looking at moss through a loupe lens in the rain forest. Nature walks are an interesting learning experience. For more information and to be placed on the Boquete EZ Nature Walks master list email Jere McCormick. See you on the trails - Jere McCormick Photos from the nature trails around the boquete District. .
  6. The nature walk this Wednesday is a very good hike for the beginner as well as the nature lover and photographer. Meeting in Alto Boquete October 28, 2015 at the Plaza San Francisco parking lot at 8:30 A.M. Carpooling 8:35 to the La Estrella area for a relaxing 3 hour nature walk and is mostly flat. We will see horses roaming the area, water birds and other natural wonders. Going on nature hikes can be relaxing, meditational and slow the urge to rush. So join us and meet like-minded people. Requirements: being in good health is advised. Pack rain gear, cap/hat, water, wear sunblock, hiking boots or gym shoes with very good outer sole treads. No need to RSVP just show up. See you on the trail.
  7. Also does anyone how to make an photo album? Thanks for the info Chica, I had been looking for the edit button as well. I need to change something, but guess it is too late. Will have to delete then resubmit.

  10. Yesterday's hike was fun as, we hiked in an area, I have not hiked on for a year or more. Palmira Abajo the area, we hiked, has many wonderful country lanes one of the reasons why, I enjoy hiking this highland area in the Boquete District as there are so many trails to choose, from easy to difficult. For the Boquete Nature Hike group on "Easy Wednesday", I choose trails easy to maneuver on for a 2-3 hour morning nature walk. Nevertheless, I do insist that you must be in good health to join this group. Hope you join us one morning! Here are a few of my photos from yesterday's hike. Explore Dream Discover
  11. Join us on "Easy Wednesday" for 3 hours of nature hiking off the beaten path. Over 12 hiking trails to choose from. This hike is for the nature lover and like minded people who enjoy being outdoors or like to take nature photographs. We always stop to smell the roses.
