  • I liked was to return to Podocarpus after so many years. The entrance to the Park on the outskirts of the town of Zamora takes less than 10 minutes (taxi can cost about $5, but it is possible to walk if it is q is available long enough) the Park has a wide entrance and a path of easy access to the interpretation centre where you can get more information in the area thanks to the Rangers. Is possible to choose between several trails that lead to beautiful waterfalls or the river Bombuscaro. for those who want to spend the night inside the Park, there is a q cabin costs $3 per person, or if they carry tent, camping has no cost.
