Volcan Baru Hiking Tour Recommendations:
Children: Sorry, given the physical challenge of the hike, this tour is not appropriate for children.
Restrictions: The Volcan Baru summit hike is not for those faint of heart. If you have any physical limitations, this is not the tour for you. If you really want to reach the summit of Volcan Baru but you are not sure you are up to the hike, we also offer a Jeep Tour to the summit that may better suit you.
The summit of the Baru Volcano is extremely cold with strong wind gusts. The hike operates rain or shine, unless of course there is a major weather even that shuts down the Volcan Baru National Park. The best time of year for this hike is December through April which is our driest season. The rest of the year there could be inclement weather during the hike. Prepare yourself and bring a heavy rain coat and waterproof equipment if you have it. Boquete is a small mountain town that pretty much lives in a perpetual spring, so don’t expect to find an REI to gear up nearby. For the most up-to-date weather forecast, Mountain Forecast has some great information about Volcano Baru.
