We went to the national park on probably one of the wettest days ever. We walked to turtle beach and then got the boat back. The trek was hazardous with free flowing water running down the paths. I call them paths, it was just a...More

Wasn't sure what to expect with this as mixed reviews but really enjoyed it! Does require a fair bit of fitness and the walk itself is quite a trek through rough jungle terrain, there are two trails to take. One to a turtle sanctuary and...More

The nature is beautiful. I hike to monkey beach and would definitely come again. At the entrance of the national park, there are many boat services which are too costly. 4 stars because I see some rubbish in the jungle.
