  • We enjoyed walking part of the Quetzel trail yesterday. Fun but strenuous. We didn't see any wildlife we heard birds though.  more »
  • The bus from Boquete up to the Ranger Station Alto Chiquero drove, 5Dollar entry and off we went. The first three-quarters of an hour easy up and down, then left in the forest. All well signposted towards Alto Respino and one time in the forest there are actually even a way. After an hour through the (quite slushy) forest, rope bridges and over stock and stone's then steeply uphill, often went with the help of even more sometimes less natural stairs. Halfway between two stations you can turn right towards the "Mirador de las Rocas", are just a few minutes and it is worth. Suddenly even a few wild boar on the way have run me, which I had not expected. From there, I'm also back to save me the long bus ride from Cerro Punta to Boquete about David. At half four back to the Ranger Station the Ranger said the bus would just go away, I would have to walk towards Boquete and stop a bus on the way. After an hour walk Boquete came also one, so expect that that not as much ride time. all in all a super trail, not too light for beginners but also feasible. The Ranger said at the beginning, it takes 5-6 hours, I took 4, but also quite fast on the road (partly because of a rain on the way back;)
