This is a very nice hike, it is definitely challenging even if the weather cooperates - fairly steep steps on the path, so get training on the Stair Master first! If the path is dry then it would be a "slightly strenuous" hike that is...More

We went there by ourselves having just couple of hours for a trip. It was amazing! You need around 3-4 hours to fully enjoy this place. You pay 7$ (per person) at the entrance because this place is privately owned and maintained by local family...More

We loved this hike to three beautiful waterfalls. They are on private property so you must pay but it is nominal. No real negatives. Just Panama beauty at its best.

My wife and I recently did this hike in a group, guided by Boquete Outdoor Adventures. It's a really great hike, with pretty spectacular scenery and payoffs. Our group actually reached two of the three waterfalls, seeing the third from a distance. A couple of...More

The hike to these 3 waterfalls is steep, rocky and muddy. Slippery coming down. That said, if you go slowly, there are handrails in some parts. You need to have some level of fitness. Don’t even think about this if you don’t have good hiking...More

Honestly this hike was more advanced than some of the reviews had described. We were so happy to have worn “crossamphibian” shoes. Basically hiking shoes that work well in water. The trails include tree root scrambles, stream crossing, rocks and mud. We took along the...More

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
