We loved this park and walked around for hours, climbed the tower and watched the numerous bird species as they went about their business. This park does not cost very much and the ticket seller will give you a credit toward a purchase in their tiny gift shop. There are dozens and dozens of hummingbirds flying about, hovering around the feeders as well a resident raccoon who appears to love Mars Bars! There were very few people around when we visited so we loved the ability to walk around quietly and observe the animals. There is also a small observation deck near the lake and we especially loved sitting there watching the birds.

I was there for the sake of birding. The various trails were mostly two-rut roads through the jungle...great for birding. Plenty of very interesting other plant and animal life as well. Like everything else around PC, it was a bit warm there in April. Take plenty of water.

We took the pipeline road for a few hours in the early morning. We expected to see much more birds and wildlife, specifically we would wanted to see a toucan but we didn't see much more than a few small birds and a few howler monkeys. The treck was easy and I enjoyed walking in the jungle but was a bit dissapointed as I've heard there would be so many different birds to see.

Really great trails and animal and bird watching. Favourite trail for us is the Oleaducto (Pipeline trail.) Howler monkeys, Sloths, Ant eaters, Capuchin monkeys, Toucans, Mot mot, Morpehus butterfly, Hummingbirds, and many other bird and insect species. Easy trail to with a visitors centre after around 45 mins walking. Need to drive there or get a cab to take you and pick you up again at a specified time. Great trail
