I would rate the hike as moderate, not difficult. We saw a monkey or two, a few birds, but little else. The beach - at least at low tide- was rocky and unswimmable, which was a disappointment. Go at high tide, perhaps! But a good...More

We cycled here from Montezuma which in itself was a pleasant ride. Bikes were secured with the help of the guard and they stored our helmets for us. The trail is fairly challenging and takes a while to eat up the 5km each way. We...More

From Curu to Montezuma is rough but possible with 2wd. Montezuma to Cabuya is rougher but possible. Cabuya to the park entrance is impossible without 4wd and high clearance.
