Even if such stones are rare, and it might be interesting to have a look at it... the trail is poorly indicated, and I even walked by without noticing the "drawings"... somehow overrated, but if you're in the area, another small nice walk

There's a kid there (not sure if there are more than one) and his self-appointed job is to translate the pictographs for you. In Spanish. Our Spanish is next to non-existent but we still loved this little dude! He tells you about the mountains and waterfalls and a bunch of other stuff we didn't follow but he is so entertaining and works so hard to impress you that it is worth the quarter he expects at the end of his history lesson to you. We gave him a dollar. Note: learn how to say "We already paid your friend" in Spanish as this will come in handy when kids try to get you to pay them a quarter for watching your car when you get back, even though you already paid other kids to watch your car when you parked.

It was nice to see, but not spectacular. You can ask some children to explain the drawings, but we didn't.

Its a pity that they defaced a national treasure.. in an attempt to make them more visable, they painted over the petroglyphs.. on the other hand, we went near sun down and seeing the fire flies almost made up for it..

Forget the guide, apparently the kids make up stuff and have painted/used chalk on the lines of the heiroglyphs anyways. Get someone to translate this: http://www.elvalle.com.pa/atracciones/la-piedra-pintada/
