We had a great time doing this hike! $10 per person admission. Going down takes about 1 hour and coming up about the same, although somehow we rocked it coming up and made it in 45 minutes. The pool is fantastic. Some of the locals...More

Lovely forest, with good hiking tracks. Great for birdwatching - easy to spot the Cuban Tody and Tocororo here. Also some good waterfall pools for swimming in.

From the park headquarters, we boarded Soviet era trucks for the ride to Codina section of the park. Once there, there is a wonderful nature walk, with especially good birding, as well as flora. The orchid garden is excellent. At the conclusion of our walk,...More
