  • El parque es muy simple, tiene una casetilla para pagar la entrada, un sendero y una playa al final. La caminata es de unas 2 horas en cada dirección, así que traigan mucha agua y algo de comida para ...  more »
  • Had been wanting to visit this, the oldest and "strictest" nature reserve in Costa Rica, for years, and finally managed it. For true nature lovers only, it has nothing of the "zoo" feel of some smalle...  more »

  • Beautiful park, located at the very tip of the Nicoya Peninsula. Even though it is located in Nicoya, which is a dry tropical environment, the tip of the peninsula is actually a wet tropical micro-climate. It's a little hard to get there, the roads are pretty bad in some spots, but with a reasonably good 4x4 and a GPS phone it can be done. The park can only be access from the North-East side (through Montezuma), NOT from Santa Teresa/Mal País, even though it looks like it should be... The trails are well maintained, they get muddy in the rainy season, but there are enough roots, rocks and stepping stones to make them accessible all year. The park itself is beautiful , vibrant with tropical life, and the gorgeous beach, at the end of the 5km (strenuous in some spots) trail, is absolutely worth the effort.
  • If you spend all your Costa Rican holidays in the south of nicoya peninsula, then it is a must to experience the tropical forest. However, compared to other reserves in Costa Rica (Arenal, Monteverde..) I enjoyed it less
  • Beautiful and amazing place. Heaven on earth :)
  • Such a cool jungle hike! We saw spider monkeys and some bats hang out inside a tree. Also there was the token coati looking for hand outs at the ranger station.
  • What a great peaceful place, good walking trails and remote beaches.
