We enjoyed a few hours of walking through the park. The birds were plentiful and the trails were well maintained. The rangers were really nice.

We only had a short time here and went around midday so a lot of the animal and bird life were pretty quiet. We saw some wonderful hummingbirds, butterflies, and leaf cutting ants. The watchtower is mixing and so beautiful to see the rainforest copy from above. I recommend taking time to visit. We plan to go back next time we re in Panama but get there rely in the day. Thoroughly recommend it.

It was a little warm, but definitely worth seeing. I saw lots of ants, lizards and some big bugs, not as many birds as I would of hoped.

The images I have from the tower, looking across the plush tree canopies at sunrise, will stay with me for my lifetime. The peace I felt. Don't forget binoculars or a telescope to view exotic birds from the tower and don't fail to go there very early in the morning when all the birds and animals are awake. After 10 a.m., the animals and birds rest. So you MUST go sometime after dawn and prior to 10 a.m.

We saw toucans, parrots, huge iguanas, beautiful little birds and a nature's flower arrangement ontop of a couple of tree canopies.

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.
