Whoever visits this protected area should not miss the lava flows that descended in 1992, the impressive ceiba tree with more than 400 years old and the trails along an extensive and authentic rainforest, where you can appreciate the wildlife and resources that the Park protects.

In addition, with each visit you contribute directly to the conservation of natural resources, since 100% of the entrance fee goes to the National Parks Fund, which is used in solidarity to finance all the protected areas of the country.
