Payed in advance a two dives trip out of Montezuma with an agency named "Cabo Blanco Travelers". $270 for two people. Turned out once you've paid, nobody cares about your satisfaction. Boat left an hour late. We met the Turismo Curu boat at sea and transferred on it. All our gear has been already picked and prepared, we didn't get... More

Best national park during my trip to Costa Rica (not been to the Caribbean side though). It is a beautiful place that has a real "jungle feeling" to it with very little of a real tourist attraction. I have even been chased by monkeys but that was the kind of experience I was looking for ;-).

I highly recommend renting a kayak and going up the river at high tide then going across the bay to a secluded little beach. This was magic for us!

We visited the park as part of excursion to Tortuga Island. We arrived by boat and it was a nice scenic ride. It was hot and we walked around for about two hours. There were monkeys at the beginning of the trail, and that was about it. Not too much into foliage so wasn't too interesting. Make sure you bring... More

Long beach and jungle with several trails of differing lengths and difficulty. Plenty of wildlife to see if you are quiet. Good swimming beach. Some shade available.

The park is small but wonderful. After going through the entry point, we were greeted by hundreds of capuchin monkeys. To watch them navigate the trees and play was thrilling. Mothers were carrying babies in the trees and on the ground. Around noon, they fed the capuchins bananas and that was a delight to witness. There are other animals at... More

the park is not well maintained and you'll find a lot of garbage along the way in the forest despite 10$ per person for getting in. There are a lot of monkeys nice to watch. We went there for Diving but although its a PADI centre I assume PADI was never there checking. Nice people, but its a dirty place,... More

Nice park to travel around and get a feel for the wildlife in the area. Lots of White Faced Monkeys, 2 Spider Monkeys, Iguanas, Flora. A nice stroll through the park. Don't forget your $10 entry!

Curu park was wonderful, with trails and animals. We loved especially enjoyed the numerous monkees. But the big bonus was getting into a scuba trip out to Tortuga with Louis (spelling?) and company. Friendly, helpful and patient staff, made the trip easy for a novice, yet thoroughly fun for an experienced diver.

This trip was so much fun. We had a private guide, he showed us all animals, including tons of monkeys. Beautiful park!
