  • 3 s trails offer visitors if we do not take into account 14 km walk to lagoons that requires mini 2J. We chose to do the 5 km loop with the viewpoints of the right to the left. Very beautiful dense tropical forest, the trail is well marked. The vegetation is lush and varied unfortunately we have not had the chance to see animals. Arrived to the first viewpoint we found ourselves in the face of very strong winds, this is indeed very exposed, but that has never mind, we continue our climb to the second viewpoint, and there is heavy: the crossing of the peaks with a few scares but beautiful landscapes because some passages are tred narrow and quite dangerous, especially with wind gusts rain and hail. And Yes we can say that we had the total! All this to say that we must check the weather before embarking on this trail and of course avoid venturing there if you have Vertigo or even less to take your children, even if the guides at the shelter do not déconseilleront you. Possibility of sleeping in huts for $ 3, beds with mattresses, electricity and outdoor toilets.
