Filipinas waterfalls is a series of five different waterfalls easily accessible along a short, but interesting trail that leads you through the jungle to each spot!
FILIPINAS WATERFALLS IN SORA, PANAMA
The trail begins with a sign! Unusual on most Panama trails but here you have a sign on the right-hand side of the road, which directs you onto a dirt road. Follow this road until you see a wooden sign on the right-hand side of the road again. This is the trailhead.
Once you start walking up this hill you will find a small house and this is where you will pay the entry fee of $2 per person. You then walk through the backyard of the family. The trail takes about ten minutes until you reach the first of the five waterfalls. They are all great but the second and fifth are the most impressive. All of the Filipinas waterfalls are close to the main trail and it is a really easy and beautiful walking trail. There are some parts of the trail with ropes that require a little bit of a climb but it is fairly safe.
We hung out at the second waterfall for quite some time and climbed around the circular pool at the base of the waterfall. The vines and forest covered the entire backdrop of the waterfall and it is a very raw environment despite being close to the village. You feel like you are more than 10 minutes from the houses.
The fifth and final waterfall is a double-tiered beauty. At the end of a short but narrow canyon, a slim waterfall shoots down into a little pool of blue water. It is possible to climb up the left side but it is very slippery and can be quite dangerous. However, if you do make it to the top the view is beautiful!
CONTACT JERRY THE LOCAL GUIDE (MY BEST FRIEND IN PANAMA)
If you need a local guide or are looking for tips to travel through Panama I suggest contacting, Jerry, one of my best friends from Panama. He runs group tours to off-the-beaten-path locations like Escudo de Veraguas and Bayano Caves. He is a local, indigenous guide who is incredibly funny, honest, and knows Panama by the back of his hand. We explored all of Cocle together and went on some insane adventures and he became like a brother to me. If you have any questions or want help, tours, guides, or tips he is your man.

ADVENTURE BAG FROM FILIPINAS WATERFALLS
This is an adventure bag. It is full of trash. Every time I go on an adventure I collect one adventure bag full of trash. It’s my small way of saying thanks to mother nature for allowing me to enjoy her beautiful creations. If we have time to go on an adventure we have time to collect an adventure bag on the way back out of the trail once we have enjoyed the waterfall, the hike or the beach. Adventure hard!
