Overview

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.

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

Hi Terry, I, too, am in my mid sixties and from the Midwest. You went on a hike in the Rainforest during an unusually rainy year and you blame the trail. Really? Honestly, I don't understand people anymore. Did you think that we could go...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.

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.

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
