I'm giving Punta Laguna a 5-star review in support of the work being done by the local community to protect this area and its flora and fauna. We visited to see the spider monkeys and do some birding. After experiencing some of the more touristy...More

It was nice to meet and talk with local people away from the resort areas, and to share their appreciation for nature

Our trip to Punta Laguna was the highlight of the week's stay. If you are looking for the standard tourist experience, this isn't for you. But if you want to spend time in a quiet preserve (that many natives have never heard of), this is...More

A great, off-the-beaten-path experience. In truth, a strange mix of activities, but we had a ton of fun. We ventured here because we wanted to see monkey's in their natural habitat (vs the local sanctuaries which I believe are more like zoos). Well, we got...More

It is a beautiful place. You can see the forest, the monkeys, insects, and have a walk with a guide. There is a small store with clothes done by the women of the community
