All reviews long hike lots of water howler monkeys costa rica beautiful beach mal pais longer hike park closes rainy season two hours white face spoke no english wildlife including early arrival crossing streams per person dry season
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
This hike is a bit intense. It's not that it is overly strenuous but it gets really hot and humid here. Definitely bring a lot of water, snacks, and sunscreen. There is potable water at the start of the hike and then again once you...More
We were a bit disappointed with this park as unfortunately we saw very little animals. The trail is quite hard as it is up a steep hill and then down again. The beach is alright but it is a rock beach so not as nice...More
Just 10 km south of Montezuma you find this beautiful natural park. You can do a hiking trail to a pristine beach. The trail is about 10 km in total. The humidity is high so be prepared. Bring enough water and some food. You see...More

Ok...so first of all, I am pleased that we decided to visit this park during our vacation in Mal Pais. We had some pretty cool encounters with local wildlife during our hike and my husband and I love nature; so it was worth the $12...More
We visited this reserve on Good Friday, 2018. We arrived around noon and the parking lot was full. I get the impression we had a fair number of local folks there that day as well as international tourists like ourselves. We parked farther out alongside...More
We visited today, 22 February. Walked the shorter Danish trail. A fairly easy walk taking about 1.5 hours. Lots of great scenery and interesting wildlife. We saw two types of monkeys, coatis, lots of birds including an unusual woodpecker.
The cost of 12 US dollars...More

Correct, this is very difficult to find and not an official road. Its a Government area where you officially not allowed to pass but there is a path along the coast but only for walking, not for ATV. You need to park in the harbour and walk from there. Hope this helps.
