I must have visited this NP at least 10 times in the past 4 years. Not only is this a very interesting geological area, with ancient lava and coral formations and dense vegetation alternated with bare sections and cacti fields but there are also many species of birds to be seen. The park can be toured by 4-wheel drive, but there are also 2 hikes near the entrance that offer very beautiful views. A challenging hike deep in the park is the Brandaris hill: a mere 700 ft but don't underestimate this climb!
Birds routinely seen are caracara, various flycatchers, yellow warbler, tropical mockingbird, bananaquit, troupial, yellow oriole, pearly-eyed thrasher and many more; at the salinas there are various herons, plovers, egrets and, of course, the flamingo.
In addition to the many bird species there are iguanas, a special type of tree-lizard and once I also spotted wild pigs.
A marvel for nature lovers!
