In early June, much of my walk was done completely alone -- which was just what I was looking for! Without a guide, I could wander at will. Trails were very well maintained, and staff was friendly and helpful. Didn't see a quetzal, but saw...More

We hiked for 3 hours and saw about 60-70% of the park. I long 5 hours would probably cover the entire park. The clouds were low so we didn’t get to see the continental divide or other high outlooks, but otherwise, it was great! Lots...More

We got a guide to take us to the hanging bridge and show us the flora and fauna of the reserve. Eduardo was very knowledgeable and nice. It took 2.5 hrs but it wasn’t fast paced at all. Over all it was a very nice...More

If you don't have a guide, you won't be able to see any animals. Attached is the guide we used. He was amazing and even helped us get nice photos!

One of the most precious ecosystems in the world. Must see!! Get a guide. It’s super cheap and SO worth it! We spent 2.5 hours with the guide then another 2.5 on our own. Check out the continental divide view!!! What an experience!!!! SO SPECTACULAR!!!

By far our most favourite place in all of Costa Rica. The forest was a magical place filled densely populated with all forms of precious jungle life. I strongly recommend either joining a group or hiring a private tour guide. We found a guide (Oscar)...More

This park has several hundred thousand acres of well preserved primary cloud rain forest. It is achingly beautiful. Hike to the continental divide and watch clouds blow in from the Atlantic or the Pacific. There are long trails for ambitious hikers and great birding here....More
