Yesterday, Itza had recommended us some activities in Boquete, and rafting sounded very interesting. A call from her, and the booking is complete for tomorrow – all we have to do is getting up early.
For Today, we decide to hike the “3 Hidden Waterfalls” route (Cascadas escondidas) at the “Sendero de los Quezales”. First we are thinking about taking the colectivo, but the quads at “Boquete Mountain Safari” catch our eye – unfortunately you cannot rent them separately from a guided tour… As the colectivo takes his time arriving, we decide to just take a taxi. For 8 PAB (8.00 USD) that’s alright.
Sendero de los Quezales
At the junction for the Sendero de los Quezales we let 2 girls join us who also wanted to go to the waterfalls, but got lost since they had taken the wrong path (left one) and want to return to Boquete. We turn right and get off at a hut next to a hill. The road is indeed very bumpy, but you get rewarded with some amazing views. After 2km we arrive at a fork and are afraid of having taken the road to the ongoing Sendero de los Quezales – and have therefore also taken a wrong path for the waterfalls. The path is quite nice but by having the expectation to get to the waterfalls and maybe also being able to take a swim there, we get a little disappointed.
