  • The National Park offers a lot of variety of excursions. There are waterfalls and trilhas everywhere. They should be careful because with rains the roads are savage, and it is difficult to reach some points. Consult the local guide are the trilha journeys that can be. Highly recommended

  • Stunning nature with options to enjoy for virtually any age and fitness level from easy walks to dearing adventure 
  • The National Park is great! Nevertheless, there are some points that need to be taken into consideration when the tour is done. Without a doubt, is not suitable for children and the elderly. No signage, no protective bar and climbing with medium level of difficulty. The view is amazing, the pictures are amazing, however the ascent and descent can become strained when the date requires special care.

  • Amazing national park with great hiking, thousand foot waterfalls that dissolve into mist, and more. There are caves in the area with beautiful formations. Highly recommended.
  • Tons of great hiking trails. Exhausting but very rewarding.
  • The Park is gorgeous! I wish one could just trek freely without guides. They are waaay too expensive and completely unnecessary :P
  • Perfect
  • Super
