The Pianist trail is located at the North of Boquete and you can get there by crossing the Arco Iris coffee farm, between Alto Lino and Paolo Alto. During the first 45 minutes of walk, you will cross cultivated and grazing fields and you will enjoy a magnificent view of Boquete’s downtown and the mountains that surround it.
Later on, the trail becomes narrow and it immerses into the thick forest of lush vegetation where you will observe a great variety of bird species. Finally, you will arrive to the magic rainforest that along with its thick mist it creates an attractive and unique environment where tree trunks twist and are filled with moss, ferns, lichens, thousands of orchids and epiphytes.
