You are right in that the Cerro Hoya National Park is in fact a beautiful place to go but let's make some clairifications.
1) The Park can be entered from a number of locations in cluding the Los Buzos / Cambutal side. There is also a park office in Cambutal.
2) This is a LONG distance from Chitre and I can't imagine why anyone would post it under Chitre.....a 3.5 hr. drive does not qualify as close unless your going to the moon.
3) It is possible to do day trips into the park but you will not get to see the true beauty and splender of the over 80,000 hectare (200,000 acre +/-) park. The best way is to take your camping gear by horseback or boat. These can be arranged at Los Buzos.
4) Camping in the park is beeautiful but you need to understand that this is camping in the true sence of the word. No electric, no tap water, no 7-11 down the street, no emergency clinic nearby, cell phones don't work - out of range, etc.....for those of us who love this stuff and don't mind the adventures that others might call hardships it is absolutly great. Camping beside a waterfall, bath in the pool at the bottom of the falls, walking a deserted beach at low tide and seeing all of the critters who decided to stay in the tidal pools, seeing the Painted Canary....you won't see this guy any where else and very few people have actual photos of this bird unless you have been to Cerro Hoya...the list goes on and on.
Truly a naturist, birder, adventurers paradise.
We will be making another trip soon and will pass on more info after the next trip.
