Overview
More
The Lost Waterfalls is a moderate to difficult hike through the cloudforest in western Panama to three fabulous waterfalls. The hike can take from one to three hours round trip depending on how many waterfalls you want to see. If you are lucky you may spot sloths, monkeys, quetzals or any number of the fascinating wildlife living in the cloudforest.

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

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.
