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!

This is a great loop that can be done either in a day or an overnight. There is limited water (the only source during the uphill push is in the actual town of Altos de Pacora) so be sure to pack around 3L/person. Steep uphill but so rewarding. Check out Jessica's tienda, too, once in the town. It's more hidden than the traditional tienda stop but she'll make some great food and is really welcoming.

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

This hike was good for my soul. Challenging, but awesome. Love that this trail passes through an actual town. Makes for a nice change of scenery (hillside homes and children playing) and it's awesome to be able to stock up on mid-trek snacks and candy bars. This hike will leave you feeling tired but soo fulfilled.

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

Wonderful hike. Strenuous but worth every minute. On clear days you can see both oceans from the city, Alto Pacora. There is a little shop that you can stop at there as well that has snacks and drinks. Would definitely recommend.
