  • Preserving the dry forest is very important and I wish we were able to see more of it. Last year's storm washed out the road so the Los Patos trail is closed. I would recommend camping in the park in ...  more »

  • "Nice place to learn about Costa Rica's history" Going to Santa Rosa was a great experience as, while you enjoy this wonderful place and the beautiful natural scenario it offers, you will be able to learn a small piece of Costa Rica's history. Santa Rosa's dry forest is immense and full of nice things to watch; there is a large variety of wildlife and exuberant vegetation. Visit the museum located in the "Hacienda Santa Rosa" old farm house and re-live one of Costa Rica´s proudest moments in history. There are plenty of walking trails to choose from.
  • Great blend of nature and history!
  • 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....
