This place has deeply rooted history, and we're not taking good care of it. In other countries a rock like this, with an engraved map such as this one that is over a thousand years old, would we well secured, clean an better explained. This is the first stop on the way up to the India Dormida (sleeping indian girl).

This is a huge rock, full of petroglyphs, you need to go visit it with a tour guide so you can hear the story of the marks. If not, you will end seeing a carved rock. In El Valle there are other places to go, and this is one of the must to know the history of the Panamanian native... More

The Indians have all types of drawings on this big rock, and someone explains the rock. I passed by it on Sunday, but did not stop for the 'tour', b/c I'd done it B4

It is a great activity since it doesn't end with the Stones because you can go up and see different small waterfalls, small places to take a quick dive, it is a light hiking trip of about 1 hour and it is great. Lots of places to take pics, and to refresh yourself in the small waterfalls.

The La Piedra Pintada is a huge boulder that Indians carved on over 500 years ago when first settling this valley. Some of the carvings look like a map of trails in El Valle, One of the elementary students will be your guide and explain this all to you in Spanish. The Piedra Pintada is located in the NW corner...

The petroglyphs are not super impressive, but they are at the start of a very nice hike - see the sleeping indian hike. I highly recommend that.

For almost 2 years, we have not taken the time to visit this attraction because some people told us it was just a joke, not that great, etc., etc. Just recently, some other friends told us what a lovely place it is, so we decided to go ahead and check it out. We headed over there late one morning, and... More

This attraction was surprisingly the best I saw during my time in El Valle de Antón. The entire forest is well kept, very clean and affords several things to "ooh and ahh" over. From the carved art on the rock to the waterfalls and the hiking this attraction alone can be enjoyed for most of your day. The long hike... More

Just a short walk with water around if you want to take a bath. The paintings are nice and the trail is in a good condition. You do not need hiking shoes. There is an entrance fee, 2 USD per person, and there are little stands around. We compered prices with the other souvenir and fruit stands away from El... More
