What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in hiking and "bagging peaks", but at a slower pace. If you enjoy hiking but sometimes feel like you are "holding up the group", then you might want to try this group. I started this group because I enjoy hiking but I am not as fast as I used to be. I still "bag" peaks like Mt Tallac, Half Dome and Mt Whitney, just at a slower pace. If you are new to hiking, rehabbing an injury, not as young as you used to be, or just wanting a healthier lifestyle, come join us. This group is not about fast, this group is about the journey and the mutual patience we all need to make it to the top!

Zoom Panama Potluck Booking Party: Trip July 31st-August 7th

Online event

Let's do this Turtle Trekkers! There are 24 members booked and oh soo ready to go. Come hop on a plane with us and let’s go enjoy life for 7 Days and 6 Nights at the beautiful Riu Playa Blanca beach resort. The dates of the trip are from July 31st through August 7th. The cost for a single occupancy is $1816 and for double occupancy $1389 per person (fees subject to change and based on availability). If you happen to stay for less days but within the same time period the cost will be less expensive. Also if you want a roommate I will try to do match ups on the day of the booking. The cost will cover airfare, transfers, beach hotel at the Riu Playa Blanca beach resort, daily activities, nightly entertainment, all meals, snacks, alcohol and nonalcoholic drinks. At a additional cost there are many fun things to do in Panama. Some examples are boating, visiting the Embere indigenous village in the rain forest, canoeing on the Chagres river, checking out the monkey jungle, horseback riding, parasailing, hiking, taking a tour of the Panama Canal, kite surfing, shopping in Panama city, bike riding and ohh so much more! If your wish is to simply stay at the resort to relax and rejuvenate you can do that too. At the booking party you will put a $200 credit card deposit down and pay the rest 30 days before you go on the trip.
