“Amazing views!”

The Peak Forestry Reserve
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 4, 2013

We started at 8 am to miss the heat. There is a sign at the beginning of the trek. There is also environmental and animal education signs along the way up which was super interesting.
It took about an hour to get up and bring snacks and enjoy the view!
If it was rainy season it would be muddy!
Watch out for a tree that has black thorns on it that are filled with ants and if they bite you it really hurts.
There were so many lizards everywhere that were a variety of colors.
Highly recommend!! You also do not need guide.

Start in Casabaja.
Contrary to Lonely Planet and most recommendations, you definitely do not need to hire a guide if you have hiked before. The path is marked with lots of educational information, and so obvious that you won't get lost.
Hike up is 1- 1 1/2 hours.

We hired the services of a local guide. The islander took us in a van to the Peak Foresty Reserve. We went there by 2 pm to avoid the high temperature of the Tropics. The islander provided us with bottled water. We started to walk and approach the 360 m hill called "The Peak" and observed the local forest and gentle fauna. Once on the top of the Peak we observed the magnifiscent view of Providencia island and its 36 km of coral reef. This was something to remember. An advice: always follow you islander guide to avoid get lost!
