  • This is a great park to visit for the more adventurous travellers. Raw and pure with a couple of picturesque waterfalls. Few tourists actually make it to the park so you can walk for quite a long time without actually seeing other people. A lot of birds and wildlife if you know where to look. Beware! the access road is only really accessible by 4X4 and can be challenging when it's raining (or right after a tropical shower). But it's all worth it. Definitely put this on your list to visit!
  • Best place really gorgeous flower and plants the water is very cold and clear took some great pictures ! Love this place hope it stays like this
  • Definite place to visit if you have the time. Took about 45 minutes uphill to walk from the last bus station but once you get there the waterfalls are really close and it is a very high vibrational place. I loved the meditation Center and flower garden!
  • Amazing hiking trails and staff. I can't wait to return the next time I'm in Costa Rica!
  • Privately owned park, very well maintained, working with volunteers to enhance the accessibility and variety of the park. Personally, we had a great walk in a very quiet area with lots of animals.
