Tour the Tropical Forest on Hanging Bridges

In Boquete Tree Trek you can enjoy the biodiversity of the Tropical Cloud Forest of Panama, and one way to experience it is through a 4.5 kilometers long natural circuit where there are six hanging bridges that offer the sensation of “flying” over the tops of the tall trees in this sector in Chiriqui.

Throughout the route within the forest reserve, you can enjoy views of rivers, waterfalls and the imposing Baru Volcano, the highest point in the entire country at 3,475 meters high. Likewise, each Visitor will be able to get up close with the flora and fauna that lives in these forests, as well as the impressive sounds of birds in their real natural environment.

An Experience in the Heights

People who suffer from a lot of vertigo are not recommended to do this activity since the suspension bridges are between 10 to 75 meters above the ground. At the same time, the shortest bridge is 70 meters and the longest is 135 meters long. An unforgettable experience that is reflected in each photo that the Visitor takes as a souvenir.

To carry out this adventure it is recommended to wear closed shoes, long and waterproof pants, since it is a very humid area. It is also important to bring water and mosquito repellent.
