  • This place is located right at the Braulio Carrillo national park border... Takes arround 2 hours walking from “Monte De la Cruz” to this Natural wildlife refugee and the ticket to enter cost arround ...  more »
  • The place is super nice, can be reached by public transport (only there to walk much more) normal truck (q is not very low, you get to a certain extent and then there's that walk) or 4 x 4 (which is one more handy) in any of the three cases as there are that walk up to the entrance of the refuge... trucks are on the way with some "cuidacarros" villager I recommend going early to make all the paths, offer service of food (which is regular) thing that if it is safe is that one comes out muddy (exc for adventurers)

  • An incredible experience, the road is short but hard, recommended special shoes for walking better if they are waterproof or boots, the wet road with intermittent drizzle that I recommend a waterproof in addition to it's cold. The wildlife refuge feature rooms for the night, sell food and hot and cold drinks are equipped with two beautiful waterfalls. If traveling by car it can be on the road around the Central magnificent of 6 km from the refuge, but if you are in a 4 x 4 can leave it close by less than 3 km from the refuge.

  • The place is awesome if you want to do some good hiking. You can "swim" in 1 of the 3 waterfalls it has. Also it is a good place to be away of technology. People here is really nice. The owner Warren is an awesome guy. Take some time to talk with him you will enjoy it. The only part that I didn't like was that some girls had their radio too loud and we couldn't rest well in the afternoon. Some times Dantas come to the camp at night. Food is really good too.
  • Nice place to arrive after the Long walk. They didn't have enough food to buy in the kitchen and they charge you entrance to the park even if you just want to see a waterfall that's just 100 meters away. There's many other waterfalls much farther away.
  • Nice place to hike, several different trails, waterfalls, you can buy traditional food.
  • Very confused because it's called Wildlife Refuge but I did not see any wildlife while here. Very disappointing to pay and just hike a little. Waterfall was pretty but I wish they didn't mislead us.
  • Superb nigh to city natural reserve. Exc walks and treks, beautiful natural scenery full of big oaks and wildlife, waterfalls, etc . Come prepared for rain even in a sunny side up day! :)
