A Great Day

The walk up to the beginning is kinda steep but every step it worth it to every water fall. They are are very beautiful. Prepare to get dirty and have a lot of fun

I met a new friend at my hostel and we hiked this trail. The views are spectacular and the hike is moderately difficult. You will get muddy so prepare for that. We jumped into the water at the second waterfall. We also ate our lunch atop one of the waterfalls. Go do it!

This is a do it yourself activity....don't pay $30pp. You definitely don't need a guide! You can either ride the local bus for $3pp or take a taxi. There were four of us and the taxi was $12, so it was the same if we rode the bus. We had the taxi driver come back in 4 hours.....didn't need that... More

Trail is steep and can be muddy after a rain but is well maintained and worth the effort. A must see place if you visit Boquete

This hike was beautiful. We booked a guide through the Boquete Garden Inn who was very friendly. We're pretty athletic, and it took a good 1.5/2 hours each way. It was VERY steep in parts and we weren't wearing the best shoes. But the waterfalls were beautiful and it was very worthwhile! Gorgeous views of the Boquete mountains.

The waterfalls are pretty. The trail is pretty well maintained but due to the constant mists/rain it is muddy especially going to the third (top) waterfall. According to my GPS it was about 3.5 miles roundtrip to visit all three waterfalls. The third one is a bit tricky due to the mud so if you are in doubt, just do... More

Great 1/2 day hike. Theres some nice views along the way other than the falls. You don't need to be an athlete to hike this trail but not recommended for anyone not considered "in shape". A hanging bridge is a nice start to the hike over the river. My wife had her swimsuit and enjoyed a "cool" dip at the... More

We did this walk on our own without a guide. Took local bus to start of walk and back to Boquete $2.00 each way. Walk was awesome through rain forest with lots of birdlife and flora. The falls are spectacular. It rained most of the way making the track very muddy and slippery but it was well worth the effort.... More

Beautiful rainforest hike that is worth the trek! Must make it to the top waterfall, it is the best one. The trail is very easy to follow, although can be steep and muddy in parts. My son and I hiked it and had a great experience.

Great moderate level activity to do in a morning/afternoon. You definitely don't need a guide! We didn't make it to the third waterfall but the first two were stunning enough. Definitely wear sensible shoes/clothes as it can be very muddy and is quite physical!
