This is a really great hike, in the area, this is considered the easy hike, but I would not say it is a walk in the park. We told our driver to come back in just over 2 hours, wish we would have said 3...More

Although our guide sought out a quetzal for us to view, October is not the best month for spotting this unique bird. Our treat were the howler monkeys. I don't think we would have spotted them without our guide, much less would have known what...More

In Boquete we took a taxi to the start of the trail (8 dollars). At a small wooden house we paid 3 dollars each to a friendly guy. You do not need a guide, the trail is easy to do by yourself. The waterfall at...More

This was a lovely hike. The first part is an old road which is not as nice as when you get into the forest. The canopy was so thick that the rain never made it to the ground. Everything was so green and the noises...More

I took a guided hike. It’s beautiful hike. Moderately difficult. Nothing too amazing relative to the scenery around (which is beautiful in its own right). Good hike tho, definitely worth it. I probably wouldn’t be kids on it as a few parts are moderately difficult...More

You can't beat a hike for a $2 entrance fee. Even in the rain, you'll find the trail to be peaceful, not really too challenging and scenic. The payoff to your work on the trail is at the end. It's well worth seeing the waterfall!

We hiked the pipeline trail and found the flora and fauna to be wonderful.. Didn't see any quetzals which would have been perfect, but the hike was challenging enough yet very doable with sturdy shoes. The pipeline shows up occasionally along the trail as a...More

We were able to spot several Quetzals in early June. The trail is easy and very interesting, crossing a couple of brooks and streams, with a lot of flowers and plants to admire. There is 1000 year ash tree which is well marked. Our guide...More

The trail is on native private land so we took a guided tour and were picked up at the hotel. The guide paid his native contact there to park and use the trail. He was extremely knowledgeable and gave lessons on botany and... More

It appeared perfectly safe to us. The trailhead is not clear. At the trailhead there is a kiosk (no one mans it) and there is a small fee to enter. However, we started at 9:30 AM and no one was at the kiosk. Regardless... More
