Hi! This is a look at Puerto Armuelles, Panama you can only get on foot.
My friend Veronique and I joined the local recreation group for this 5+ mile walk in the hills above Puerto Armuelles, Panama. We had a great time. We sang, laughed, walked and took in the sights.
There was some uphill. But this section, you just saw, was the most steep, Most of the hike was pretty flat.
As I said, we did some singing and had a great time walking, talking, enjoying nature and the views.
After a bit, we dropped down into the Alto San Vicente neighborhood. Turned left towards town.
If you take a right, you see here, you’ll head out to Punta Burica.
Alto San Vicente Neighborhood
I’ve included some photos of some of the more rustic parts of Alto San Vicente I thought you might enjoy.
Downtown Park – Health Fair
We dropped down through the airport and ended up at the health celebration put on by the 7th Day Adventist church at the downtown park.

That is Ramon, one of the raspado guys. A raspado is a snow cone. In Panama, they off you the opportunity to put sweetened condensed milk on top, as well.
There were tables of the always popular Ropa Americana or used clothing for sale.
There was all vegetarian food – including some very tasty lentil & garbanzo bean patties.
The event offered blood pressure readings and all sorts of info to promote a healthy lifestyle.
Downtown Waterfront Park
This park is located by the playground and across the street from Puerto’s downtown waterfront park seen here.
Here is a quick peek at a view from he waterfront park that I took in the early morning.
A family, particularly Jose, are the driving force behind these biking and hiking outings.
If you go to one of the 2 Rosibel restaurants they own, (which are also the home of the delicious $1.75 lunch) you can find out when the next outing is.
They also have a Facebook group, you can see here.
