Although the hike is very short, the reward is great. You drive up to the trailhead where you pay $3. A very friendly woman gave us hand drawn maps which were very useful to spot the different sights along the way. She also gave us clear directions: "left, left, left, left". We spoke with and met some people that got... More

Good hike! Not easy. Totally worth it. I recommend you to "hire" one of the guys who are telling the legends of the stones and places you pass on your way up. Usually is doesnt cost more than 2-5$. The trail is not clearly marked, but if you look closely there are arrows in some places. The view from the... More

You will need around 60 minutes to get yo the mountain top. The path is a beautiful forest, with smalls waterfalls. From the mountains top you will have a nice view of the Anton Valley. Difficulty level: low, but if it rains going down could be tricky because it gets slippery. If you are foreign you have to paid 3... More

Beautiful but very challenging. First 1/4 of hike is enough to see all the beautiful waterfalls and swimming holes without getting into the very difficult climb.

I have lived in Panama for three years, love my day trips to El Valle, but I have never hiked there (walked and driven ATV's to the waterfalls, but this has been it for my adventures on the mountains). This was my second hike. Ever. Anywhere. I agree with the most recent post that poles are strongly recommended for the... More

A vigorous hike, pretty much straight up for an hour. Trail is NOT well marked. Trail is steep and rocky. I really took my time coming down because of the danger of falling. I'm very glad that I had a hiking pole. Locals I met on the mountain told me the correct way. If you are not a Spanish speaker... More

This is a steep hike past petroglyphs and waterfalls with a great view on top. If it's not too window, you can follow the ridge line and get great views of the valley.

It's a wonderful hike, not too difficult for most folks. The trail markings aren't very good as you might end up at a home halfway through the hike if you wonder off too much to the right . It's $3 for an entrance fee if I remember correctly and you'll see some petroglyphs and hike by a couple small waterfalls... More

This walk/hike takes you past the "piedra pintada" (the painted stone), some waterfalls, through a lush forest, and up to one of the best spots of El Valle. The view from up here is amazing! Sneakers are OK, boots will give you some more grip on the steep parts of the walk. Along the way you will pass a few... More

Firstly I would suggest you were appropriate shoes as it is very rocky, lots of tree roots and even route and at times need both hands to get up the rocks - not advisable for young children - though we saw some on route!! Saying that it is worth getting to the top to see the beautiful views of the... More
