“Wonderfull hike to the Vulcano Baru with Feliciano”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

Feliciano is a wonderful and very warm person who toke great care of us hiking up to the Vulcano Baru. Looking out for us, distracting us from the sometimes very strenuoughs bits with interesting and funny stories about Panama, Boquete, nature, his life, this already unique experience became even more special. For a couple of hours we were suddently not only tourists but were treated as one would do a friend. I would recommend Feliciano any time!

“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

I can’t recommend Feliciano enough. He picked my family of 5 up at the David airport and drove us to our hotel in Boquete. We went on a nice long hike up through the beautiful forest outside Boquete. He spotted a male and female Quetzal up in the trees that we never would have found without his assistance. The next day he drove us all the way to Almirante to catch the water taxi to Bocas. There was great conversation along the way. His English is excellent and his passion for nature makes for wonderful outings. My oldest son enjoyed practicing his Spanish with Feliciano. You really can’t go wrong with Feliciano.

“Amazing hikes with Feliciano Gonzalez”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

We had 3 amazing tours with Feliciano that were excellent due to his positive energy, two decades of experience and great sense of humour. The Volcano Hike was by far the most difficult b/c of the steep incline, rocky terrain and the heavy rain which created slippery conditions. Feliciano was more than happy to continue but we decided to turn back after making it up 1/3rd of the way up. He offered to make up the lost time by taking us to other tourist attractions in Boquete which we found to be very generous and professional.

The second tour was to the main waterfall in Boquete. It was beautiful and just the right level of intensity/challenge for us. It felt like we were in the movie Avatar b/c the forest was so dense and striking.

The third tour was probably the best b/c we got to be lazy! We went to the Caldera hot spring which was a small pool of water heated by the volcano. Right beside it was a cold river so we cooled off/swam in it for a while then back to the hot spring and then back to the river. It was a long lazy afternoon and just perfect!

But above all, Feliciano was what made the tour. We attempted the waterfall hike in the morning and I developed a major neck cramp from sleeping in a bad position. This made it impossible to continue the hike so Feliciano helped me by applying pressure to the area as we made our way back to his 4X4. He then drove us to the pharmacy and got me two types of cream that I applied right away. He took us to the hot springs, indicating that it would help my cramps and wow, did it ever! After the massaging, applying the cream and soaking in the hot spring I was almost brand new again and couldn't thank Feliciano enough for his care, concern and attention. He then took us back to do the waterfall hike which was much more enjoyable the second time around.

All in all, we highly recommend Feliciano! He's a wonderful person with a kind and caring heart who not only has a deeply intimate knowledge of Boquete but also brings unparalleled local friendliness to all of his tours!
