  • Really nice small private reserve - we spotted plenty of birds here. Hummingbirds were just gorgeous.  more »
  • We visited this place in the early morning with a local guide knowledgeable of its flora and fauna, we saw many birds and rodents, could take many pictures, the visit lasted about three hours. I recommend it to combine with other activities in the afternoon.

  • Very nice Park. We saw many animals. Great guide thanks to Javier who made us discover this magnificent site. But be careful because there are a lot of mosquitoes. We opted for the lime as repellent as it nothing more natural. PURA VIDA
