The Lost Waterfalls is a moderate to difficult hike through the cloudforest in western Panama to three fabulous waterfalls. The hike can take from one to three hours round trip depending on how many waterfalls you want to see. If you are lucky you may spot sloths, monkeys, quetzals or any number of the fascinating wildlife living in the cloudforest.

If you like walking and don’t mind paying the fees to get in ($7pp) then this is a great place to go. We got the local bus which took about 15mins which cost us around $4pp. We also had to get a taxi to the...More

First we booked a guided tour for the lost waterfall trail which would be 45$ per person including the entrance fee. After reading various reviews we decided to cancel the tour and go by ourselves. A good decision! We took the local bus which cost...More

Too much walking for me but beautiful for those in shape and willing to walk it. Pick a pretty day as it is hot and wet makes it tough!

We loved this hike. Not too tricky, took us about 3-4 hours all told, with a picnic stop and swim. To get there, you can take the public bus from just north of the main square, which go every 40mins (via bajo mono or alta...More

Thank you for the great review. This year it has been particularly difficult because we have had about 3 times as much rain as usual. That means that trees are falling onto the paths every week and the rain washes away the trails. We are...More

I am always surprised when people say that $7 is too much. A hamburger costs more and they don't complain. It cost a lot of money to buy all of the property, build the cabin and the bathroom and the little store and then even...More

This was a very nice trek through the forest. Steep in places but easy to moderate overall. The waterfalls are beautiful and there's an opportunity to swim at the second one. Well worth the effort!

Hi, Sorry that I didn't see this question before. It's rated moderate to difficult. The 4 year old would have problems without a lot of help and they would both need supervision.

You can get a bus near the center of town in front of the grocery store Bruna. Just ask for the buses going to Baja Mono or the 3 waterfalls or las tres cascadas. If there are several people in your group, you can also get a... More

The buses leave from Parque Central - but don't actually drop you at the entrance. From the bus stop it's another 15min+ walk to the entrance. I'd advise the same, a taxi. You can also organise for it to meet you when you... More
