  • In the rainy season when we made the Cabo Blanco trail on the coast, the way was rather muddy and rather not for flip flops. Addition, it is E.g. Monteverde really only one path even when compared to other parks. It is really in the forest. Be still and absorb the impressions are here. Who abspuhlt just the way much missed... Admission is $10.

  • 2hrs go, 2hrs return but it is worth a visit. We made it with children 8 to 11 years, they enjoyed to meet the coatis, monkeys and other animals from the Costa Rican jungle. Allow plenty of water, we were 6 we had 6 litres. The beach is exceptionally beautiful. If you prefer a departure from the opening of the Park and a picnic, you can enjoy a bit more of the beach. Attention even when there are a lot of waves, a bit dangerous with young children. Man you good shoes for hiking.

  • We were glad to have seen it, as it was the first nature reserve founded in Costa Rica. However, we saw a lot more wildlife from the botanical gardens where we were staying and around the beach. Eg. m...  read 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.
