We organized in the hostel a tour to this park and it was a really nice experience, just 40 minutes from town by car, here you see a lot of nature, sloths and the principal activity the sundboarding activity.

If you can get here, it is one of the most cinematic places. Try coming here around sunset and you can get some gorgeous shots that will make you look like you're in the middle of the desert. It's a bit hard to get to...More
