This is a steep and often HOT hike that begins in the town of San Miguel and ends at Kalu Yala. If you don't have a 4x4 vehicle, this is how to get to Kalu Yala. The jungle village at Kalu Yala has a hostel and an outfitter if you want to arrange a guided hike. Please look at the information on the following website prior to visiting.

This is my absolute favorite hike at Kalu Yala! Beware that this hike crosses a river many times, so rainy season flooding is a concern.

I walked around here in 1998. I am sure it has been updated since...

Beautiful views of the valley below the whole way! Wear long pants or socks to protect from the grass, it’ll cut. Definitely worth the climb!

Not that interesting. Wouldn’t do it again it’s just a long path in the ocean.

The magical jaguar falls! A nice hike, not to hilly nor strenuous. However, it is wet. Around 17 river crossings means a lot of walking through water. Hiking down to the actual falls is super steep but fun if you have the right attitude. And the waterfall itself is gorgeous, refreshing and a great way to spend a hot day.

Awesome trail with breathtaking views at the top. You have to do it on a clear day but if you do you can see both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, Panama City, and both North and South America. Absolutely amazing
