    Amazing place of Costa Rica where you can enjoy a great river... a waterfall that is born in the middle of a cliff of the mountain... and the peace of nature... If you come to costa and you don't endorse it...

    We have seen that not a single animal but experienced some beautiful hikes in an enchanted fairytale forest

    This Park is not at all crowded with tourists. The nature is unique... Unfortunately, we say no animals but nevertheless it was worth!

    Awesome trip, we hike the easy and medium trails. Both actually are pretty easy, coming back to do the rest for sure.

    Very beautiful national park. Was quite isolated and less touristy, but still had great hiking trails down to the river and up through the mountains. A little tough to get to, but its worth the trip!

    Very nice place for a hike. The road to get there is a bit bumpy, make sure your car is up for that. Really beautiful countryside views on the drive out.

    Parque Nacional Tapanti is a good place to make a daytrip from San Josè. There are beatiful pathways throug the typical rainforst with all the great diversity of plants and animals!

    A nice hike just like every other park with different difficulties. Probably not worth it if you're a serious hiker, Orosi is surrounded by beautiful mountains that are easily accessible and easy to wander through, especially with the $10 entrance fee.
