We hiked to Ben's Bluff which provided great views over to Victoria Peak. The last 10 minutes was strenuous due to the switchbacks and the exposure to the sun. The top is shaded with a picnic table. We stopped and swam in the waterfall on...More

We took the double waterfall hike and I highly recommend it. The hike was strenuous but worth it for the double waterfall. Don't miss this!

Make sure you allow enough time for this sanctuary. While it is known as home to an estimated 40 to 50 jaguars, they are rarely seen. We didn’t have enough time and therefore missed a lot of the geological features this park offers that you...More

Fantastic rain forest, trails, mountains, towering trees, rivers & dramatic waterfalls. Recommend the hikes to see& swim in the falls. The trails can be tricky with lots of rocks & mud but very cool. Tubing down the lazy river was fun, river water was very...More
