Take-A-Hike is the premier hiking group in the District of Boquete, Republic of Panama. We have 2 groups – Basic and Advanced.
The Basic group hikes 2 days per week – Tuesday and Saturday - at 8:00 AM sharp. The Advanced group hikes 3 days per week - Monday, Wednesday and Friday - at 8:00 AM sharp. We have a repertoire of over 70 hikes on paved and gravel roads, rainforest trails or combinations of them. Hikes are posted on Chiriqui.life + I send emails 2 days prior. The hikes normally range 1½-3 hours for Advanced, ~1 hour for Basic and are rated 1-10 for distance and difficulty for the average mountain hiker - beginners and non-mountain hikers usually find them more difficult, experienced and younger hikers less so. Monday hikes are selected to be 'easy' for beginners and those recovering from illness or injury. Wednesday and Friday hikes are sometimes more difficult and challenging. Children are welcome, dogs discouraged due to dogs encountered during the hikes. Hikers are encouraged to wear hiking boots, bring hiking sticks and water. We've been formally hiking since 2014 and now average 196 hikers per month (2021) (56 per month in 2014). There's no charge for hiking except certain trails that charge for trail maintenance. Fun and Fitness!
Take-A-Hike is excited to announce our bilingual website! A special thank you to Maureen Kerr for creating this site and guiding me. Also to Chad Wildman for crucial feedback.
Take a look and explore the many advantages of hiking – with Take-A-Hike Boquete. I’m starting with an interesting article in Fitness and Fun titled Beginning Hiking. There’ll be articles covering all hiking aspects, other exercises as well as the value and importance of exercise for health and longevity.
