  • One day we were going camino a Santa Teresa, we were to spend part of the day in the reserve and it was a very good decision. (The entrance to Costa Rica is cheaper for foreigners). Since we entered we saw a very quiet deer near the road. Arriving at the 'office' realized account that the facilities are not in the best conditions, but what had planned according to what we saw on the internet, was to go to kayaking. Then we went to the post of kayak and we attended a very nice boy. We rent a kayak double (cards accepted) and we went to change. With little experience in kayaking, we went to beach cheese (spent 50 minutes to arrive). This beach also is accessed by a trail of 5km, so we understood that there are usually very few people there. That day we 2, were another couple who came kayaking, and a person's safety. On the beach there were a few tables where we ate what we carry picnic type and after a while went back to playa Curú. From there we walk to the Mirador trail which is 700 metres and has a spectacular view of the beach (photo below). Again, the State of maintenance of the trail could be better, but in the end the experience was very good. We arrived before 11 am and leave at 4 pm. At the end we also saw monkeys and raccoons closely! Recommended!

  • I spent a day at the Curu Reserva and it was a great day for Nature lovers. I was mostly alone on the trails listening to the birds and the monkeys. Deers were not scared at all and I saw many birds. ...  more »
