Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web
Hike through lush green rainforest along Pipeline Trail and reward yourself for your efforts with views of the 91 m (300 ft) tall waterfall located at the end of the trail. Along the way, keep your eyes peeled for a rich diversity of animal life, including the ever-elusive quetzal, toucans, howler monkeys, and sloths. Along the path, you'll see a 1,400-year-old tree called "The Really Old Tree." Take a good pair of hiking boots, light clothing, and your own water supply.

  • Beautiful mostly easy hike. Just goes out the way, lost is quasi impossible ;) ...ein guide can but help to see the famous quetzals trail. Otherwise many great plants and butterflies on the way to see! After approximately 1,5 hours away to reach the waterfall, which is however not gigantic (...der famous big tree on the road is however really gigantic). It is usually faster on the road on the way back. Best by taxi from Boquete to the start of the trail can be (since it is quite a long way and not nice to go) and for later date to pick up again (Hin + return CA $16)
