Hidden paradise

Great tracks and scenery. Sadly the road to get there is absolutely awful, and it's been for decades.

Beautiful place in the middle of the nature. The trails are near and for all ages, but a lot of steps and rocks. Very beautiful views!!!

Even though it has a huge outdoors turism potential, this place remains offering a poor infrastructure. The trail that goes into the valley down to the river is quite nice and offers the trekkers a peacefull moment and somewhat scenic views. In ancient times it would be allowed to camp inside this park, which would be great to reconsider. There... More

A few miles down a gravel road, with a 5 reale admission price, this is a nice park with some pretty walks that involve changes in elevation, so are mostly for those in decent shape. There's a small restaurant in the park, and we took advantage of the picnic tables to have sandwiches we bought in Canela. There are some... More

There is no access to the park by public transport and it is few kms away from Canela. The views in the park are amazing. There are several tracks you can take ranging from 20 min walk to 4hrs tramp. I truly enjoyed it and recommend visiting if you are already in Canela.

The park is quite far from Canela and is not accessible by public transport. Only gravel road from Caracol park coes there but there are magnificent scenes yvown on postcards and it is worth visitibg. The entrance is much lower comparing Caracol and there are longer possible trips in quiet nature.

The park has a great landscape, and the belvederes are very accessible (2 min easy walk). Consider taking kids or elderly family members. There is a small zip line for children. The staff is very pleasant. You can take some time for exploring the trails, 4 h must be enough. The road is not paved, but is in good condition.

The walk down to the river cai is excellent and the waterfall amazing. The park itself is so much more relaxing than caracol though takes a bit longer to get to. The lookouts are absolutely amazing also and there are quite a few of them

Worth a visit, specially if you have time to spend there and even better if you are fit enough to walk up and down the trails!
