I spent a nice afternoon hiking in this part of the National Park. It's privately owned and has a very nominal entrance fee. The trails are great! Well marked and they give you a map to follow as well. It goes deep into the rain...More

This was an amazing trip! First: "low cost" at least for Costa Rica. The trails are great if you love nature. These trails are not nicely paved, they are nature pure! You barley see other people. It's so quite and just nature. Make sure to...More
