A bit of a strenuous hike, but well worth it- that's an understatement. We were told it was a 5.5 to 6-hour hike to complete the loop, but we completed it in 5 hours. Although they are beautiful, there is so much more to it...More

Yes, it's a bit hard to hike for five hours on mud trails, rocks and roots, but just looking at this magnificent landscape is so, so rewarding! The little detour to the Hummingbird reserve is extra-difficult, but there you can rest for a while before...More

Take the longest walk and make the loop, you'll pass by the wax palms, it's really worth it. The wax palms are just amazing.

There are some options with a guide or even horsehide. The hike should not be so difficult and you can choose taking a shorter one. Will still be a very good experience
I have a dog with me, but was just told dogs are not allowed. Is this true? Can I bring my small dog to the park??
