“Beautiful, but unpredictable... Having a guide is a must!”
Having an experienced and knowleageable guide is integral going through this park. We were fortunate to have Manuel Cabalceta as our guide (www.manuelstours.com). While walking down the main path without the trained eye of our guide, we would have easily missed many interesting species - including various plants, lizards and birds. Manuel has been studying for many years and shared his vast knowleadge and experience with us. Unfortunately, with all wildlife it is quite unpredictable what you will see on any given day. We saw a sloth, jesus christ lizard, racoon and various small birds. There is a lot that I feel we missed though, but was not the fault of our guide.
There is a peaceful & gorgeous beach inside of the park, but we did not know to plan for that so didn't bring our swimsuits/beach gear with us. I would definitely plan to spend some time on this beach since you are already in the park. It is much nicer than the public beach nearby.
