  • La Piedra Pintada this on the way to India. EH a stone with drawings of Indians who have been through it. It's worth it, because the trekking to the Piedra Pintada ain't nothing away.

  • Dear if you visit el Valle the almost mandatory visit to stone is painted. The place is well preserved and consists of the income to pay $2.00, then raise not so steep stairs surrounded by streams and lush vegetation up to a huge stone that has it recorded an ancient map that according to some versions It reflects the path and output of the mountain. Insurance will find upon arrival one of the available people to guide them and explain them better. The stone there is a path that takes you to a beautiful stream where they can dive if they like, eye water is cold because direct low mountain, if still a little more you can see a waterfall and then the road continues with direction to the India Dormida. I recommend you go with a guide, water bottle, clothing and appropriate footwear if going to go after where the Piedra Pintada is located.

  • It had been more than 20 years ago and I decided to go back because of the insistence of a small child in my family who wanted to meet the famous Piedra Pintada which had read in its school textbooks. We arrived and it drops us a "flock" of people (adolescents and adults) offering its services of guide and "well be carefull". At the entrance of the place there to cancel $2.50 for adults and $1.00 for children for the right of entry to the site. You get to the Piedra Pintada and your guide recites from memory that same description without any modification that 20 years ago the last time I heard that had gone. The walk takes about 5 minutes along a slightly steep cement path. Then the guide tells you the story of the stone and its meaning for another 5 minutes. You return again to the entrance in another 5 minutes. Total 15-minute visit. The guide is paid what they literally say: "only a tip". I I gave them $5.00 but I feel it was more than what is actually worth its services.

  • The petroglyphs are pretty much at the start of the hike up La India Dormida, there is another rock further up the trail on the right overlooking the waterfall as well. Certainly cool to see. Grab a local guide to explain what they mean and he will also guide you along the trail and the right way up to the top of the mountain for spectacular views!! You will see several waterfalls along the way too. Definitely a must do activity if you are in the El Valle area. So beautiful!
  • Gorgeous area to walk and enjoy nature. Not an easy trail to find, but well worth it to seek it out. We did a short hike late one afternoon just to take a quick look and returned the next day to complete the full hike.
  • Have in your bucket list if you visit Panama. If you go forward this trail, you will get in La India Dormida mountain, and can see the populated floor of the largest inhabited volcano crater in the world.
  • Wonderful hieroglyphics, hard to find
  • Interesting place
