Best waterfall for small children

Hello. I'm going to El Valle next month with my husband and our 2-year old daughter. We will be traveling throughout Panama and decided not to bring the bulky backpack baby carrier, so we won't be able to do any "strenuous" hiking as my daughter will be walking or carried in arms. Which waterfalls might still be accessible to us?

There are two that are easily accessible. One is at Piedra Pintada (Painted Rock) where you'll see an ancient indian pictoglyph that the local kids will explain to you in Spanish for a quarter. It's fun because you'll pay a quarter for a new story every time you visit. Anyway, the waterfall is just beyond the rock. The trail from the rock to the waterfall is rocky, but it's short.

The other waterfall is El Macho -- a little ways up the road from Piedra Pintada. Charged admission, but easy access.

You might also consider the hot spring/mud bath. The pools are shallow. Kids love it because the water and mud are warm, not really hot.

Thank you very much for the information! Do both waterfalls allow swimming?
