Pipeline Trail, Boquete

(4.1/5 based on 140 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. Work out when and for how long to visit Pipeline Trail and other Boquete attractions using our handy Boquete vacation generator.

  • nice walk mostly in the trees so handy if hot as it was on the day we did it, waterfall at end isn't spectacular by any means, the hole in the pipeline which was spraying out higher and higher was bet...  more »
  • This is a great trail for birding. We saw Quetzals, glass winged butterflies and many other birds. It is also the easiest trail to navigate.  more »
  • This trekking is low level, the duration is 3 hours of back and forth. The entrance fee is $3 per person. The Pipeline name is because the trail runs parallel to a water pipe that reaches Bajo Boquete. Some species of animals, especially birds, with a little luck you can see even see the elusive and hard to see the Quetzal. It ends at a small waterfall trail.

  • Beautiful hike (one hour +/-) to waterfalls. First you'll find a smaller set, keep going to THE waterfall. No swimming here. Not a difficult hike, but plan for mud and crossing water.
