Boquete Nature & Hikes added this day last month becoming a very popular walking hike.
I am so glad it has been fun for many here Boquete. On many Wednesday's there have been as many as 21 people joining in on the walk.
The walks have become a nature adventure as, we stop to see many of the natural abundance surrounding the trails.
On Wednesday, August 6, 2014, we all drove to Palmira Centro and begin to walk in this Panamanian community. People outside their homes or mothers outside school yard would greet "buenos dias" and wave as 21 of us walk along the road all the way to the cemetery.
