It's a wonderful hike, not too difficult for most folks. The trail markings aren't very good as you might end up at a home halfway through the hike if you wonder off too much to the right . It's $3 for an entrance fee if I remember correctly and you'll see some petroglyphs and hike by a couple small waterfalls... More

This walk/hike takes you past the "piedra pintada" (the painted stone), some waterfalls, through a lush forest, and up to one of the best spots of El Valle. The view from up here is amazing! Sneakers are OK, boots will give you some more grip on the steep parts of the walk. Along the way you will pass a few... More

Firstly I would suggest you were appropriate shoes as it is very rocky, lots of tree roots and even route and at times need both hands to get up the rocks - not advisable for young children - though we saw some on route!! Saying that it is worth getting to the top to see the beautiful views of the... More

We are not experienced hikers, but in good condition you shouldn't have a very hard time hiking the trail. Be sure to bring a map or download a route and bring enough water/ maybe some food. For a next time I would wear better shoes than ordinary sneakers. The view up te hill is beautiful and I loved walking next... More

This is a hike best done in the morning before cloud cover in the afternoon. Plus, there will be less people on the trail. Some parts of the hike are a bit advanced especially when its been raining a lot and the trails are slippery with mud.

Just beware that this is a small mountain and not a "hike". Wear the correct shoes and bring food and water. Even if it is just a snack, you need nourishment. Water is crucial. If you are young and in shape, it's not an issue, but over 50, prepare! Regardless, it is so worth every minute. Take a dip in... More

The entry costs 5$. You pay at the entrance and not very far you get to the first waterfall. You'll come across 3, each nicer than the previous one. The track is complex and hard on the legs but quite beautiful and once you get to the very top, the views of the valley make the effort worth it. It... More

The climb to the summit is not too strange and the panoramic view is breathless. Additionally you pass an amazing waterfall.

This hike takes about 2,5-3hrs and leads you through a wonderful scenery. There are some waterfalls, impressively big trees and once you're on top of the "sleeping indian" the view is breathe taking. I can honestly say that the sleeping Indian has been one of the most beautiful hikes I have done in all of panama. Ask in town for... More

I enjoyed the walk up to the Sleeping Indian Girl despite the cloudy day. On a bright day the view over the former crater area should be great...I recommended the staff at the entrance to raise awareness for tourists not to litter the path...and to place bins every km on the way...more care is needed.
