    This is quiet little reserve has easily accessible roads (important in Costa Rica) and is about 15-20 min drive from Tambor. We spent half a day here and did a couple of the shorter walks, it was beau...  more »

    English below. -Curú is one of those places that are all natural. The beach, paths and animals coexist in an environment where the human hand has not gotten both and that is appreciated. While don't you eat an alligator or something as well. My taste is a little careless, there is no sufficient signs and there is a risk of getting lost in the middle of the jungle. On the other hand it is very nice to see loose animals enjoying their natural habitat and watch them. Get there hard work since you have to get off at a point on the road between the ferry from Puntarenas to santa Teresa. The entrance to the Park is far from the road, walk 1Km or more in dirt, I know, perhaps not too much, but if you bring any luggage that is i. Otherwise, the cars come very easily. There is parking place for camping and cabins for rent. If you like wild experiences, Curu is a choice. Curú is all about wildlife and nature. I never been more scared about walking through the jungle taking care of the crocodiles and other little creatures. Spend my time getting lost in the trails and observe the animals like monkeys in their natural habitat was one of the most crazy and significant thngs I ever do. Unforgettable. It is huge if you're not used to. Because access is not easy. But worth it. Prices are like all in CR for foreigners but, c'mon, ticos are nice! Enjoy! Cheers!
