Drove away from the crowds to this small but dense jungle and it was really cool, some dense and full of sinkholes!!! But was really cool, was how much vegetation was in the national forest.

A truly wonderful experience and a chance to see the real Nassau. The park has an excellent board walk that meanders through the trees and even deep in to a sinkhole. Yes you could do the park by yourself but take a guided tour with...More
