Don't expect a hike to get there. It is a very small guided path, though a bit of rain forest. We paid 5$ per person to enter the place, and maybe stayed..30min ? In the end it was expensive, and we wouldn't go again for...More

As previous ppl mentioned, this is merely a river as you would find at every corner of Central America. And it’s just laughable that they want you to pay to access the river ... come on, Panama, go see how parks are managed elsewhere in...More

There is not really much to see here but lots of trees and small waterfall. I did not do the canopy but that might have been more eventful.

There are four zip lines go across the waterfall. Incredible views and scenery. Our guide was so nice and pointed out a sloth and woodpecker. The climb up is about 20 to 30 minutes and quite steep but with steps. In the rain, it was...More

We were told this was an easily accessible waterfall = not so!!!!! Most of our party gave up after a couple of slippery steps as did everyone else we observed. One man fell. Be careful.

It is up to the workers that are on staff to make this available. If you feel inclined to give them a tip, this would help the situation and make it possible to bring in your dog.
