Spent some time, enjoyed the views, walked the trails. Really enjoyed the peace and quiet away from the tourist trail. Waterfall in full flow when we visited, as it had a tropical shower in the morning before we visited. If you want some peace and quiet, well worth a visit, as you can soon outpace the bus tours and head... More

walk around just a few hours. almost nobody in the park. i would say, nothing special, have seen a few monkeys and birds around. good place for a walk. maybe to take more time and to go the longer track would be more interesting.

Don't miss visiting this park, lots of stunning waterfalls, hikes, viewpoints and a whole world away from the beaches. Easy to see self drive in a day, stopping off at viewpoints (many with toilets and ice-creams). Lots of mosquitoes in the wooded areas!
