There is long walk to get there, but is worth it!! I climb to the top of the mountain, where a post tower from the time of the Spaniard still stand. The view is breathtaking, there is no mountain tops higher, just clouds that you think you can touch. From there you can see the southern coast and the beautiful... More

My boyfriend and I visited the forest on a weekday. It was absolutely beautiful! There are many hikes in the park. Be careful driving up the narrow and curvy road.

I arrived close to 17:00 in March 2012, ready to camp. No one was around, save for one family I saw leaving the reserve.

It's a safe place with a river right next to the camping area that takes you to a natural swimming... More

I've camped here three times and I love it. The nature is spectacular, unspoiled and verdant. The campground is not luxurious, there is no electricity or hot water but it's rustic charm is what I love best about it. Each campsite has a gazebo with a table, a covered bbq area and a fire pit. It has clean running water... More
