You can hike here and get an amazing view of the gulf of Nicoya! They have a hammock garden for relaxing and a waterfall that you can hike to. Saw loads of leaf cutter ants, butterflies, birds, and plants.

The panoramic views of the valley and Golfo de Nicoya are almost too beautiful to be real. You could easily walk the main loop in 1 hr (allowing time to stop and take in the scenery and wildlife). Trails are extremely well maintained and open...More
