I wasn't exactly in a hurry to make it to the waterfall. And one reason I use that crappy tourist map is I honestly enjoy being lost. Cerro Banko waterfall is in the "Comarca" which sort of like an Indian Reservation in the U.S. the Comarca is a large piece of land in Panama reserved for the Ngöbe Buglé indigenous tribe. The men in the tribe no longer wear their traditional clothing, but the woman do. The colorful dresses they wear all look like maternity dresses. I like to use the joke, "You know how some women have regular clothes, and maternity clothes? Well Ngöbe's only have maternity clothes." It seems like the woman are always pregnant, and it's very common to see teenage girls taking care of their babies. Not much else to do in the jungle I guess...
