  • They have 3 hikes; 1km, 2k, 5k (each way). We did the 5. It's strenuous at times, but takes about 1 hour 20 min each way. We saw lots of monkeys and crabs. The beach at the end makes it all worth it. ...  more »

  • Hike to the beach is 5km and was relatively flat but extraneous due to the hot and humid weather. Did not see a lot of wildlife on our way to the beach in the morning. The beach is ok but not better than other beaches around Montezuma. Left the beach around 2 pm and saw a lot more of wildlife activity including monkeys and rain deers. Recommend to leave the beach as late as possible (park closes at 4pm) to enjoy the wildlife.
  • Beautiful beach, nice walk and not crowded! Great place to spot coaties!
  • Beautiful. Reasonable walk to the beach but worth it!
  • The hike was spectacular. ..done with two 7 year olds. Bring lots of water. Trees were unreal as forest untouched. We saw coaties, white faced monkies, howler monkies, bats and an ant eater. The end of the hike terminates at a wonderful gorgeous beach. You can shower there and refill water bottles.We saw sea turtles in the waters It was 35+C when we hiked it. Note: the beach has Manchineel trees; the most deadliest tree in the world. So do NOT touch them, their small green apples or sit under them. But like typical lack of safety in Costa Rica there are no warning signs marking these trees. Otherwise enjoy it is worth it.
  • Nice forest but not any different to the area outside of the national park. 2 hour hiking trail is exhausting and not worth for the beach, which is rather disappointing. I wouldn't even go again for free but 12 dollar is definitely too much.
