THIS WILL BE THE MOST MEMORABLE THING YOU DO IN PANAMA.
Las Pailas is a remote slot canyon with five waterfalls ranging from 15-40 feet high. The tour starts from the mountain village of El Valle de Anton, which is a 2-hour journey from Panama City. The tour uses either Polaris side-by-sides or 4x4 trucks, and takes you on a forty-minute ride into Panama's wild interior. The cloud forest is cooler and less tropical than the lowlands of Panama, and the water at Las Pailas is perfect for swimming.
This is a lightly strenuous journey that requires 250 stairs to get out of the canyon. Anyone who has done it, however, says the tour was the highlight of their time in Panama.
