  • Beautiful place! Loved the trek and absolutely mesmerized by the scenery. Watch out for the friendly iguanas...they love to watch you from a safe distance!
  • This place is breathtaking and beautiful! If you visit this island do yourself a favor and visit this magical place.
  • Lovely walking trails and spectacular views. But sadly in a state of disrepair. The metal sculptures especially are rusting and falling apart. Regardless, very happy we went and supported this beautiful park. Be sure to take 30 pesos for the admission
  • Beautiful place. Awesome scenery. Bar there not so great
  • You stroll on these wonderful paths thru the metal statue gardens. The views are to die for. As you approach the Mayan ruins you will then feel the history of this site.
