The hike was wonderful, the forest was amazing, and our guide, Pablo, was a wealth of information! The park is an attraction that no one should ever miss! The... More

(FYI: This review covers the Southern Costa Rica area of La Amistad International Park. Because the park is located in two countries, Trip Advisor has multiple reviews of this park, including one in the Bocas del Toro area of Panama.) Located in Southern Costa Rica and Northern Panama, La Amistad (Friendship in English) represents one of the first attempts at... More
