“BEST TOUR GUIDE EVER”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

CHICHI is not only an amazing tour guide, he is a wonderful person. His knowledge and love for Boquete only add to the experience. He is funny and a pleasure to be around. He goes out of his way to make conversation and has endless knowledge of the landscape and animals that inhabit the jungle. He offers a wide variety of tours and is very willing to customize a tour to suit your needs...all for a very fair price. When visiting Boquete, there is no other tour guide that rivals this guy!!

“We saw the Quetzals!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

Chichi met us at our rental house and we drove to the Pipeline Trail where we took a moderate hike up the trail through a rain forest. All along the way he stopped and pointed out different bird species and plants that we would've never seen on our own! Chichi spent a great deal of time and effort "calling" the quetzals so that we could experience a sighting and he did deliver! What an unbelievably beautiful bird with such vibrant colors! When we reached the top, there was a waterfall where we could rest and rejuvenate before heading back down the trail. Make sure to bring your binoculars and be prepared for hiking over rocks with hiking shoes.

“Awesome Hike!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014 via mobile

We recently went on the Pipeline Trail hike with our awesome guide, Chichi. What an enjoyable morning! Chichi was confident that he would be able to spot the Resplendent Quetzal for us, and he delivered! The bird is very shy and there is no way we would have been able to see him without Chichi's knowledge and skill as a guide. He did the bird call of the Quetzal and was able to draw the birds into sight. The Quetzal is magnificent! Chichi's extensive knowledge of the trees, flowers and animals of the rainforest along the trail was impressive and enhanced our trip. He was always very kind and considerate, making sure we were enjoying ourselves. Chichi's English is excellent, so no worries there. He also does many other guided hikes, so no matter what your skill level or interests, he can provide and wonderful outdoor experience. If you want a great guide, Chichi will deliver!

“Great Guide!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

My hotel manager recommended Chichi for a guided tour to see Quetzales. He picked me up early morning and took me up to see some amazing animals. He has a great eye for spotting stuff that I would have totally missed. He is a super nice guy and I cant wait to go out again.

“Chichi is awesome!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

I had the best time hiking with chichi! Not only was he one of the only tour operators willing to take a single person on a hike for a reasonable price, but he agreed to it without much notice. he was super fun to hang out with too! His English is fantastic. He gets excited about nature - as we all should! He also was able to spot a quetzal during the offseason - something that I'm told is hard to do. But even if we had not seen any wildlife, I would have still had a blast hiking with him. He knows tons of information about the area and I wouldn't have seen half the things I saw if I was hiking by myself. You won't regret it! Thanks chichi!!
