Adventurers will enjoy navigating the limestone caverns of Barra Honda National Park. You'll hike high into the hills to find this natural wonder, so don't forget sunscreen and bring along plenty water. Don your hard hat, harness, and flashlight, and descend the ladder into the depths of the chasm to observe the striking limestone formations and bats living within. Hike to the cave on your own, or opt to bring a guide who can explain the wildlife of the area. Access to the cave requires visitors be at least 12 years of age. Put Barra Honda National Park into our Nicoya sightseeing planning tool and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • The Cave Tour is for those who want to do something different, the spectacular formaciones.son and guides of the super Park friendly and always willing to meet bn visitors... While in the park there are many only a cave is accessible to the public .. It gets quite hot x what I recommend to bring hydration, at the entrance there is appropriate (not very good) showers x if you want to pour some water, I recommend to wear shoes that they do not slide much and finally arrive as early already that sometimes there are q wait than the other sales an of the cave by the there that patience...

  • For 25 euro a 4 hour tour. 2gidsen told us all about the animals and plants. After a hiking of 3 hours we came to a cave. 2 vd 42 caves are open to the public. With 1 guide we went down where everything was explained. The cave is what smooth and the hiking trip properly. But everything was more than worth it. Take plenty of water and a snack and go enjoy all that nature has to offer this piece. Very good value for money.

  • Writing this review 5 days after we had a day trip on 3 Islands in Honda Bay. And what I now know, is that Honda Bay has lost luster. Not clear water, the corals was discolored, starfish island was almost without starfish and string the blade was not what you had dreamed of. The presentation was otherwise good, but use the time on something else.
