Lovely walk

Nice walk to the falls, it can be slippery and narrow. Be careful when hiking. Nice on a hot day to cool down.

The water fall is nice, but budget only a short time for your visit here. Walking the trails won't take you longer than 15 or, if you really walk slowly, 20 minutes.

We were brought here by a local guide after a morning of birding. So we were glad the walk wasn't too long or too strenuous. We had hiking poles but the reception area had a multitude of hiking sticks for those not having hiking poles. Narrow walkways with some steep steps but all was paved and the number of small...

Did the hike with our 5 kids aged between 3 and 10 years old and they found the trail easy. It is a nice short walk. The waterfall is ok. $5.00 entry fees but children don't pay. It is an extra to go to the pool and the zip line which we didn't do. OK if you are in the... More

The location and pathway are unique. Pathway is made of cemented stones and includes about 6 short sets of steps, a couple of 'swing' bridges and one very narrow plank bridge. The available walking sticks to borrow are very helpful. Admission is $5. A nice quick walk to break from the heat. Wouldn't suggest taking very young children for safety... More

Falls were great. You walk over several bridges and through the rain forest to see falls. Not a hard walk and it takes about 20 minutes to make the loop back to the entrance. They hand out walking sticks, so it is simple -enjoy

Make the drive up winding mountain roads with spectacular views to El Valle, visit El Chorro Macho for a short hike or zip lining , explore the vendors market and stop for lunch at one of numerous restaurants. A great Sunday excursion.

It was okay - I guess I have been spoilt by falls in other countries. As you are in the area you would be silly to miss this.

$5:00 to wander around a short series of trails and over a couple of short rope/cable suspension bridges to see the falls. It was nice enough but nothing special. something to kill 30 minutes. Didn't do the zipling as there is far better in other parts of the world, but it did look like it might be cool to zip... More

Zip line is $65 cash only! Nice couple of hours hiking up to the top with a guide and coming down 4 lines. Hike was a bit fast for my 74-year old husband, but it was fine. I had a nice swim in the pool at the bottom. Panamanians come here for the pool, which is nice so the experience... More
