“Natures beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

If you love nature, then you will enjoy trekking in the cloud forest. I recommend that you choose a day where is not raining so that you gan get a better view of the fauna as if it rains they will hardly come out! I recommend doing also a night walk in the forest as you will be amazed to see many species of birds like Tucans and Papagallo sleeping. If you are stay in Santa Elena There is a public bus that you take early in the morning that leaves you in the entrance of the park for 2 usd each way! The park entrance is 17 dlls USA. Make sure that you have with you a k way.

“Awesome.....even in the rain!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Had an amazing time here even though it rained the whole time we were there, well it is a rain forest!
Didn't really get to see any wildlife, views etc, but we did get a few memorable photos of us completely drenched standing in the clouds!

“One of the Most Beautiful Places on Earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

I have traveled around the world, been to every Central American country numerous times, but this is a walk through one of the world's special places. The moss on the trees...lush vegetation...clouds below you...vistas...wildlife... are awesome. It is so calm and peaceful there.

The trails are very good and you may see some wildlife. We visited during the rainy season, which is also the time hummingbirds were in the area. We did not have a guide for our three hour hike, but it might not be a bad idea.

THIS IS A MUST GO-TO PLACE IN THE WORLD!

“so beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

The tour guide was very informative and there was so much wildlife to see. The place is really amazing. Our kids wanted to keep hiking all day, which is not like them at all.

“Very nicely set up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

I did not take a guided tour so really did not see any wildlife but the setting is surreal. I planned to walk for 2 hours and was frankly a little creeped out at first (as I was on my own) but soon I relaxed and ended up spending over 3 hours exploring all the trails and rarely came a cross another human being. I love d it!
