Last week we posted about our adventure to the cloud forest and secret waterfall off the Pianista Trail. Right after that, we had a completely different hiking experience. Just another day in paradise and another weekly hike with Jere McCormick, who leads group hikes in and around Boquete on Wednesdays and Fridays.
This hike was through an area called La Estrella, high in the Jaramillo hills above Boquete. The hike is on a quiet gravel road with many meadows of grazing cattle and great views of the Pacific inlets of Boca Chica and the Cordillera Talamanca on a clear day. Best of all, it starts only about 30 minutes from our house. We don’t have to go far to be surrounded by intense natural beauty!
Now, that looks like a hike I would enjoy! Gorgeous countryside. Thank you for taking us along with you!
I’m looking forward to having John show me that one! He’s really enjoying getting out on Wednesdays with Jere’s group.
I love hiking and so enjoyed your great photos and a glimpse of life around and about the Boquete countryside. I especially liked the photo of the guy weed-wacking. Before our travels through Central America, I had no idea that the machete was the all-around perfect too with a myriad of uses. And you’re right – lots of shades of green!
John did that hike and took all those great photos! He’s turning into quite the little photographer 🙂 Yes, you won’t find a self-respecting jardinero (or any type of worker, for that matter) without his trusty machete.
I would love to hike in green area like that! Thank you for the tour <3
You are so welcome 🙂
