  • We have privileged access to the Park from Zamora. Easy access by taxi ($4) from our lodge (Copalinga), there are several easy to make trails and a climb to the mirador, a bit harder but that is worth a visit for the view of the mountains around.

  • We went with a guide organized by Catherine at Copalinga and saw many amazing birds including the White-breasted Parakeet! Don't miss it! 
  • Beautiful waterfalls where one banhar can be, most are accessible without a great effort, beautiful park.
