The hiking is a wonderful work out. But, don't think it an easy hike. There are many up and down spots that are tricky. Just do it..Hike it and enjoy the beauty!!

Not much to say, other than it is as beautiful as the descriptions you read online. A must see when in Panama.

Very cool jungle hike with the kids. Kids are free. 3 waterfalls and the path was well maintained but still natural.

We took a shuttle bus from Boquete for around 2$ to get to the Lost Waterfalls at 8 a.m. It was a half an hour ride and when we got off the bus, the park was eerily empty. Mixed signs greeted us at the entry:...More

This was one of my favorite hikes in the Boquete area. Lush green jungle, and I even saw a Quetzal (female) in June, a time of the year when it's difficult to find them. The waterfall was very high, but not overly spectacular. The hummingbirds...More

Hike through the beautiful cloud forest to visit some very impressive waterfalls. Be prepared to get very muddy and wet though!! Weather changes here frequently so pack a jumper and raincoat in case and a waterproof bag for electronics. The hike was a little difficult...More
