Beautiful views and an exhilarating experience. The 6-7 guides speak excellent English and are extremely safety oriented and careful. After the first few lines, I was eagerly zipping down and looking all around at the amazing scenery. It was over much too soon. When we went, the Boquete Bajareque was in full force and it was chilly, so bring warm, waterproof jackets if you can.

The day we went, there were only 3 of us so we got a lot of personal attention. Note that if this is the case, the morning ends much sooner than expected and you might have a bit of time to wait before the shuttle comes to bring you down the mountain. In our case, we finished at 10:30 and had to wait until about 11:40 before our ride came. We ended up having lunch at the lodge to save some time. While the lunch was decent, I would have appreciated it more if we were able to depart the lodge promptly instead. It was very quiet and there was almost no one there while we were waiting.

There are lockers to store your items at the lodge and you have a guide with a camera taking pictures for you, so I would not risk bringing a camera. It is $10 for a CD of all the pictures of everyone in your group. However, when we opened the CD it seemed that about half of the pictures were corrupted. We have contacted Tree Trek to see if we can get the remaining pictures.

This is truly an amazing experience. It's not to be missed. The views were exceptional and the guides were better than I would have expected. They really enjoy what they do and they make the experience that much better. The only thing I regret is not having a camera. Even though it's hard to use while on the line it would have been great to get some shots from the platforms. Can't wait to go again!

This is an amazingly gorgeous place. The accommodations are very nice and the grounds are beautiful. We loved the coffee tour and learned a lot. Others who went zip lining said they had a great time with that too. Dress warmly though. The temperature was in the low 50's the whole time we were there. This place is way up there in the mountains. Be prepared for a bumpy uphill road to get there, but it's well worth it.

IMO a can't miss activity while in Boquete. The views alone are worth the drive up the mountain to this stunning location.

Gotta love the energy and "schtick" of the guides. Definitely felt safe and well cared for. Arms hurt at the end from so many pull ups..
