  • After missing our turn off to visit Rincon de la Vieja National Park, we saw signs for Santa Rosa N.P., so opted to go there instead. Seeming how we were on highway 1, the road was paved, which is a n...  more »
  • Avoid absolutely. The main part, which leads to the beach is closed due to the storm of October 2017. You will still pay to enter and is not worth the visit. There are better nearby

  • This park is probably only worth going if you make it to the campsite at witches rock on the beach. But unless you have a real tough big 4x4 car (not a SUV) and are an experienced off road driver you ...  more »

  • Uninteresting national park, comparing to the other national parks in Costa Rica. And the most important thing - about 90% of the park was closed (Jan 2018) and we were told it might be open again in March. Too bad they didn't told that at the entrance. We paid 15$ per person and we there there only for one short trail... Was a really waste of time..
  • Excellent park persevering nature not a lot of access allowed only on the northern side when roads have dried out we normally go by boat
  • So much sea life sea turtles, dolphins, fish and yes crocodile's. The surf was awsome and nobody around. Make sure to pay the $15 to the national park day pass. All the roads to witch's rock are washed out from hurricane as of 11/05/17 so the only access is by boat....
  • Like previous comments, most parts are closed. There is a very short trail which can be finished in 30 mins. Nevertheless, we paid 35 usd doe 2 persons.
  • Not a nice experience to our latest adventurous mountain bikers from Germany, we did arrived late and no one was at the first entrance, we did realized that the second entrance had the guards ready to leave but they charged us anyway even with the place closed because we did use their 7 km of road. A really bad example of how Costarican organizations are stilling money from tourists. Also the guard Marcos Bustos had a very rude attitude when discussing the charge with a sarcastic smile. Anyway we paid for them since wasn’t their fault. We did continued our adventure to all over Costa Rica having fun and leaving the past behind.
