We did both he waterfall and volcano hikes. About 10 miles total but worth it. The waterfall hike is steep and hard. Not for the faint of heart. The volcano trail is really cool with the steam pots, mud pits and beautiful waterfall and scenery....More

We went here with the shuttle from Liberia (20$ p.p.). On the way we had to pay the fee for the private road (700 colones) - a bit of an irony - road to the national park and private? And finally we got to the...More

We did not hire a guide. I really don't think you need one unless you want to have someone to point out plants and birds and stuff to you. The trails are well marked. You can easily hike on your own.
