#2 of 9 in Things to do in Nicoya
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.

  • I really liked us! You have to walk quite to reach the caverns! It is quite demanded but entirely possible! Beautiful vegetation! You have to bring water! The cavern was spectacular! Excellent guide!

  • In addition to the walk that is beautiful to walk through the forest of Guanacaste. It will reach a viewpoint from where is the village of Barra Honda, hence there is goes to the cave velvet down to see stalactites and stalagmites. I recommend it
