Apart for the naturally beautiful setting, the locals offer great deals on physical activities, like rafting. So if you're an active, risk taking person you'll love it. For the calmer travellers, you get to visit and observe a variety of natural views.

I enjoyed strolling the park. It is not spectacular, but good for an hour or so. I loved the old trees with Spanish moss hanging on to them. At dusk some of the lanes are lit up by neon 'butterflies'.

Entrance fee, moss covered trees, can watch rafters coming down the river. The onsite reataurant serves tipical Santander plates, resonable prices, good food. Parking is a little difficult.
