Meet your guide at your Panama City hotel, and travel into the mountains northeast of the city. Enjoy views of lush jungle as you drive, then go even deeper into the forest on a narrow trail—the walk is about 1.5 hours each way, and is a good fit for those in good physical conditions.
Spot blooming flowers along the edge of the trail, and take the time to learn about the Panama’s rich natural heritage: sloths, tree frogs and many kinds of monkeys thrive in the forest, and Panama has 125 animals that are found nowhere else in the world.
Cool off when you reach the waterfall, where you’ll find a natural stone pool that’s perfect for swimming in the the spray. Enjoy the serenity of the hidden spot before making the return hike to the road, then stop at a local Panamanian restaurant for lunch before returning to Panama City.
