I highly recommend this hike. We were there for about 5 hours and hiked the whole time. Great network of trails with amazing views. Saw some wildlife, not too much but the forest itself was amazing. Definitely worth the price!

Nice hiking through the forest with different paths of varying lengths. A few beautiful viewpoints but we didn't see any wildlife which was a little disappointing. We didn't get a guide, and perhaps there would have been a better chance of seeing animals with one,...More

Cannot say enough wonderful things about this place. I would definetly hire a guide. They make the time there much more than a walk in the forest! They will see things you would walk by, and get you a great photo using their telescope. Very...More

We had the benefit of having a very experienced guide all to ourselves. We saw several quetzales, which are truly beautiful birds, and other wildlife. Well worth the trip!

Toured without guide. Wanted to go very slow and take pictures so group tour was not going to work. Enjoyed the Sendero Bosque Nuboso and Wilford Guindon trails. Not too steep but still up and downs and some uneven walking surfaces, so if you have...More
