With multiple hiking trails it can take you a whole day to explore it. Parking if small but available, recommend you either get there before they opened in the afternoon, after lunch time. This will ensure you can find parking and that the crowds are...More

We had a great time here! The drive was long (dirt road) and honestly a little confusing but we made it. We saw a coati and some monkeys! A little disappointed because I was hoping to see more wildlife, but it's not a zoo so...More

We spent a day hiking here - it's hard to describe how amazing it was. The paths are well marked with maps so you won't get lost. We're not hard core hikers but had no trouble getting around.

An amazing part of the planet- huge diversity of plants, trees and wildlife, insects and birds. Could disappear in 30-40 years due to climate change. Our knowledgeable guide John taught us so much about this beautiful area and the creatures that inhabit it.

We took guided tour and got many interesting information. Path goes through hanging bridges with nice view to the valley, weather is pretty windy. At the end we went to the highest mountain by cabin and slid down on zip line.

Just a normal park without animals. Nice walk after a good breakfast. Price is 37 EUR for two - I am sorry but that is really too much.

We visited different natural parks in CR and really liked this one. The paths are signed very well and the people are very friendly. You don‘t even need hiking shoes to visit this reserve. The price is fair compared to the state of the park.
