  • We came back in the reserve to go to Isla Tortuga, but on our way back we decided to make a 1.5 km trail in the reserve. Great time, the trails are well designed and we have seen full of animals. Coati, monkeys, squirrel or deer. One of our best book during our stays in Costa Rica! Pura Vida!

  • Ballad less challenging than that of Cape Verde and we saw many more animals (without guide): iguanas, monkeys, deer, agouti, Armadillo. The beach is perfect for swimming (there are bench and shower). Diving club also offers kayaking tours. For the restoration plan picnics (large table) or book a meal at the store before exploring the trails (28500 columns). Beautiful day.

  • We did 18km of roads in this park: Capuchins, armadillos, agoutis, iguanas, raccoons. For the Quesera Beach 10 km from go back but it's worth it. The Killer and especially Avispero trail is reserved for experienced and well shod walkers (minimum trail shoes): the trail Avispero is barely race and he must find their way to the small Orange son clinging to the trees. It's a great Park.
