The park has a level, paved footpath making it easily accessible for people of all abilities. The trail makes one big loop and has some informative signs along the way. There are restrooms near the parking lot and also about halfway along the trail. I highly recommend hiring a guide to help you spot and identify all the birds, plants... 更多

A good hiking tour for the family. Kids had a good time. We went off season donut was very muddy and buggy. Bring insect repellent. There were no guides available so we did a self guided tour. The plaques were well written and very helpful. The kids really enjoyed the leaf-cutter Ants. The highways of ants carrying leaves was astounding.

The Sacarlet Macaws are magnificent birds and,like the rainforest and the cloudforest, highly endangered. Traveling during the wet season could be a problem because some of the trails... 更多
We went on a day trip from Tambor to Carara to go on a guided tour to observe wildlife. I would definitely recommend a tour guide with their trained eyes they will point out all kinds of wildlife such as Macaws, Crabs, Herond's, Monkeys, Birds, Anteaters, Lizards and many more animals native to Costa Rica!
