Not to be missed outing. Los Tilos is a pleasant 23 km drive from Santa Cruz & easy to find; just turn to the left immediately prior to the bridge that spans the gorge before the town of Los Sauces. A narrow road winds steadily...More

The south is lava flows - the centre is pine forests - this is a wonderful walk through primeval rain forests! Lots of choices of hikes but the easy one up to the Mirador across the valley is well worth it!

what more can one ask for? Start out at the Interpretative Center to get a sense of where you're at and what you can experience. Just down from that is a hike to a waterfall that is wonderful. It's a good trail that brings you...More

Don't think there is public transport but there is a tourist information centre on site so you could try an email to find out. It is in the middle of nowhere.
