One of the most popular trails in western Panama is Los Quetzales Trail, which connects the towns of Cerro Punta and Boquete. The trail meanders through a thick and lush cloud forest teeming with colorful birds and offering and endless array of panoramic lookout points and crystalline streams. The hike can be approached in different ways so talk to your guide before starting so you can make the best out of it. Here are the different options: it is much easier if started at Cerro Punta since it is 3,000 ft. higher than Boquete so the trail is mostly downhill. However, if you are fit and looking for a workout, you shouldn’t have any problems going uphill. You may also hike for the first two hours starting in Boquete and then retrace your footsteps as this is arguably the most beautiful stretch in the trail and you may even spot a resplendent quetzal.
