Guide was helpful in pointing out different trees, birds, butterflies, etc. The trail was easy to navigate. Good way for most to experience the jungle life. We managed several sightings of the Quetzal bird.

We hiked the Pipeline trail on a sprinkling morning and we were not disappointed! A lot of Panama's natural beauty can be seen right along the Pipeline trail. The brightest, most colorful birds seen in the jungle are all right here. Even the elusive Quetzal,...More

This was a fairly easy hike for most of the way. It is a little harder towards the end when you get nearer to the waterfalls as there are creeks and rocks to pass over. It hard rained the day before and after day of...More
