If you're into Whitewater River Rafting adventures, the rivers born in the highlands of the nearby volcanoes offer breathtaking scenery and high doses of adrenaline thanks to their constant rapids. Chiriqui Viejo is a world class river that has it all.
The Quetzals Trail is one of the most gorgeous hikes in Central America. This path connects the town of Guadalupe in Cerro Punta on the west side of the Baru Volcano with Boquete, which is on the east side. You can make this hike in any of the two directions, although it is much easier from Cerro Punta to Boquete because it is more down hill. The cloud forests of Boquete offer amazing opportunities for Bird Watching.
In the Zip Line Canopy Tour you can glide through the canopy of century-old cloud forests, high above the pristine rivers and waterfalls that make up the incredible collection of natural landscapes bordering the National Park La Amistad and the famous Baru Volcano. It has 3 kilometers in total length and is divided into 11 different zip line cables. A harness, an ultra resistant steel cable and gravity are the only elements necessary to stipend and propel the "fearless rider" in this incredible "adrenaline rush".
If you want to relax, on the road to Boquete you can encounter a place known for its famous Hot Springs. Caldera, meaning boiling pot, is just next to the Caldera river, which serves as a refreshing cool-off after bathing in the hot springs. Enjoy a refreshing dip in the Caldera River and marvel at the smooth and warm boulders and hot pockets of water within the river itself.
Rock Climbing and Rappelling are becoming very popular sports in Boquete. In Bajo Mono, just 15 minutes away from our language school you can find some pretty
walls that can challenge even the most experienced climber. Tours are organized and provide all the necessary equipment.
Mountain Biking is an incredible way to discover the enchantments of Boquete.
