The Waterfall

Chorro El Macho

With suspension bridges over a scenic creek and offering picturesque views, the Waterfall called “Chorro El Macho” is the signature trail of the Canopy Adventure and one of the main attractions in El Valle. In less than one hour to complete this rather easy loop trail, you will be astounded by the complexity of this piece of Panamanian cloud forest and amazed at the biodiversity that is at your fingertips.

The casual observer sees trees laden with a tangle of mosses, ferns, orchids and other climbing plants, seemingly burdening the branches to the breaking point.

The careful observer may spy a sedentary sloth, a tamarin monkey or other rainforest mammal scurrying through the undergrowth or running down a branch. Morpho butterflies and their Lepidopteran cousins are here by the hundreds, exciting any hardcore butterfly or moth enthusiast.

Botanists will be thrilled by the sheer number of species, many in bloom year-round, hanging over the trail. The main attraction is of course, the birds. A good pair of binoculars and a camera would complete your experience for this outstanding trail designed for the entire family!
