The Canyon has been in Gualaca for thousands of years, as a geological formation that was pushed up from the ocean during the formation of the Isthmus of Panama. It’s interesting to see ancient sea fossils at this elevatio

We took a colectivo to get to the trail that starts of with a hanging bridge. The trail was quite tough and I was grateful for my hiking shoes. But it was so much fun. The beautiful surroundings, the challenging hike and the waterfalls made this the favourite day of my vacation. I stepped into the 2nd waterfall but only went in fully for the 3rd one. Mind you, that was only for the pictures because the water is freezing cold, but it was fun. We were also lucky with the weather and I lived that there were only so few people on the trail. I recommend everyone (with basic fitness level) to do this hike!

We hired a guide to do this trail although you could easily do it on your own. Entrance was $8 which we paid at the beginning of the trail. The trail isn’t marked but is pretty easy to follow as the path is clear. There were some steep sections (one spot with ropes to help you ascend and descend). There are three waterfalls to see. The views were great and our guide shared lots of great info about the plants and birds we saw. We did the hike over 3 hours but took our time stopping at each waterfall to enjoy the tranquility.

No need to take a tour for this hike. We hired a taxi for $20 return from Boquete who came back to pick us up. The trail is clearly marked to each of the three waterfalls. It was tougher than I thought very steep and muddy, but with rails along the steep parts and even ropes for the hardest part to the 3rd waterfall. Good workout. No birds or wildlife to speak of, the hike is the experience. Entrance gate after climbing for a while, $8 admission as it is a private enterprise. You need to be in fairly good shape, I felt it the next day.

Finding the trailhead was a problem - the pipeline trail also has a waterfall. The taxi dropped us off at the pipeline trailhead and we then discovered the “Lost Waterfall” trail we wanted was actually the Tres Cascades trail and it was 1.2 km up the road. As we crossed the suspension bridge at the beginning of the trail we were in a relative flat agricultural area. As that faded away we entered the forest. As we passed the houses where the trail is collected no one was manning the toll booth so we just continued up the trail. The trail itself is very rocky with lots of roots that seem to do their best to snag a toe as you maneuver across them. Also lots of mud. The higher you get the steeper the trail becomes. Because we lost time from being dropped off at the wrong spot and we had a taxi returning for us, we only made it to the first two waterfalls. But both falls were very pretty and lots of fast flowing water all along the trail. Well worth the effort. The way back was almost as slow as going up because of the rocks and roots. As we passed by the toll booth - still unmanned - a boy ran out and collected the $8 toll.
