    Really enjoyable hike. Starting from the official entrance we paid our $3 and unguided gently went up the steep and marked path. Going early we saw lots of birds and butterflies on the way, and the views at the top are stunning.

    Once at the top you can either come back the same way, or continue down the face and body of the Sleeping Indian (coming down her neck is very steep !) and there are numbered concrete guide posts. At number 12 if you turn left down a well defined trail it brings you back to the town making a really enjoyable loop.

    The location is very nice but the zoo itself a bit suffering and in need of some update. There are so many colorful birds kids will definitely enjoy as well as the playful monkeys. A bit difficult to navigate as if you don`t pay attention you can easily skip some of the animals enclosures. We also got inside an area in reconstruction where they had some rescued animals that required more attention like a baby slot.
    They also sell plants and have an orchid designated area that was closed when we were there.
    I think people should support them in rescue effort and don`t just go for the golden frogs ... btw the frogs would be also in a kind of "cage" if there would still be there no?...

    It’s a very « rustique » place but a fun expérience to have with friends or family if you want to relax after a hike to la India Dormida!

    Its a nice little trekking with a nice scenery and you might have the chance to have interesting encounters with some beautiful butterflies and animals. The square tree part was a little disappointing because they are not really THAT squared, it’s easy ti confuse for any other tree.

    In the entrance though they have the golden frog for you to see!

    Great for a family visit, it takes up like 30 minutes of your time because it is very small. The animals here are rescued and its a very noble mission to do so. A guide will be with you and explain everything about the animals they have there and the snakes, even let you carry one!

    We enjoyed the mud masks and the small mineral pool. It was very nice that there were changing rooms and rest rooms. We even bought some mud for $3 to bring home.

    We went on a hike after it rained so we decided only to go to the second waterfall, about a 45 minute hike up. After the second waterfall it became too muddy to climb all the way to the top and then somehow manage to get down.

    The hike was beautiful! I wish they had more information on the hieroglyphics found on the rocks.

    I would recommend anyone who is capable of hiking to come here.

    Entrance fee is cash only. I do wish the trail was better labeled and all the trash picked up.

    We did this hike with our daughter and 2 granddaughters (6 & 12) it was well worth it although we didn’t see any birds as we didn’t start until 1130 am but it was worth the effort and at our age of late 70’s being overweight experienced hikers we enjoyed the view from the top.Good to do with families and you will see birds if you start much earlier in the morning.

    The staff were great about showing us around and explaining everything to us. It was a little bit disappointing that we went when not many of the orchids were in bloom.

    Charming town and lots of authentic people watching. Small market with better prices than nearby grocery store.

    yeah, go give it a try. Rocky hike up, but several cascading water falls. NOT well maintained, handrails broken, trashy (hey it's Panama right, there's trash everywhere). Charge $3 US for foreigners, less for Panamanians. Bathrooms @ bottom. Locals will offer to guide for small tips $ Parking on street @ bottom free. The "painted" rock is hardly noteworthy, but OK.....it's Panama.

    Small but interesting museum about local history and culture.
    Only US$ 2. Better spend your money there than on walking trails and waterfalls!

    When you get there, you'll see someone standing by a rope gate. You have to pay $1 per person for entrance. Parking can be challenging on a Sunday afternoon.
    There are a picnic tables and a part of the creek that widens out so that the water moves slowly enough for wading / swimming.
    If you're sure footed, you can walk downstream to the falls. Its best to where footwear that can get wet because some of the path is through shallow bits of the creek. Flip flops and loose sandals are not recommended because you will have to walk over wet, slippery rocks that are by no means on level ground.
