Enjoyed seeing white-faced monkeys, deer, guan, and coati. The hike out to the beach is 10 km (5 each way) with lots of elevation change and rough, poorly maintained trails. Dress to sweat and extraordinary amount. Took us an hour and a half each way,...More

Our first national park in Costa Rica. Not too crowded and really relaxing trek. We saw different monkeys, lizards, birds and butterflies. The beach itself was stunning. The park ranger was also nice and helpful. 12$ per person to enter, opened from Wed-Sun, 8am-4pm.
