we hiked the 12km from the entrance to the end of the park where the arrayanes trees grow. then we took the ferry back to the starting point, which is a nice way to explore this park. the one way ferry cost 90pesos - we first thought about renting bikes which is 70-100pesos but this would have been a bad idea for us. the first 2km in the park is very steep with sandy, loose ground- pushing your bike up there won't work, you would have to carry it. the other parts are fine, but this is a real obstacle - except for moutainbike enthusiasts I guess!
make sure you don't miss the miradores at the first km - the one up to the left is fantastic, the one to the right ok. take your time, especially with the miradores and if you take pictures you will be in a hurry if you want to make the trip in 3hrs on foot. you're in the forest 99% of the time. book the ferry in the office at the pier next to the national park office, it leaves at 16:30 back from the island, costs 5pesos less and you get a voucher for hot chocolate. it's a very nice experience and can be absolutely recommended!
