If you are near by, stop at the reserve for a few hours. We had multiple guides, Allen and two trainees, as well as Eduardo, from Montibelli. A lot of birds in few hours... Get there before dusk or near sunrise to catch the roosting parakeets (we missed them).

Great family hike. Takes about an hour total to see the waterfall. Take the guide - total less than $10 including entry. Gorgeous nature.

We had a really good time and was lucky to have a driver who made us feel ok about the bad road there. Nicaragua has some of the best maintained roads I have ever seen so it’s too bad this one road is dirt. The trails are very well maintained and the people and tour guide were extremely kind. It’s such a great opportunity to go into the jungle and see protected wildlife. We saw monkeys and the nesting place for birds.

This was a beautiful place to visit and one of the cheapest. The government doesn't fund this location so they are able to keep the beauty and not fall into corrupt hands. They do rely quite a bit on not government help. The walk to the waterfall with the birds was nice and easy however, do watch out for the poison ivy. We were able to see some of the birds start to fly in and quite a few birds, iguanas and other animals along the way. There are many different hiking option from easy to ropes and extreme climbing. Pay for the guide they are very helpful and knowledgeable. The only bad part was about 3/4 of the road was very bumpy and uneven. So, take your time, the GPS will tell you 20 min but expect to double it. The views are well worth the trip, especially to see the pineapple fields. The baby pineapple are very cute. As usual if you want to go some place good, the road will be bumpy but it will be worth it.

Nice natural environment away from civilization, so close to nature. The road to the destination was not in good condition.
