If you want to really see the Cloud Forest in its natural state then this is the place. No zip lines or rides, just natural beauty

We spent a day hiking here - it's hard to describe how amazing it was. The paths are well marked with maps so you won't get lost. We're not hard core hikers but had no trouble getting around.

An amazing part of the planet- huge diversity of plants, trees and wildlife, insects and birds. Could disappear in 30-40 years due to climate change. Our knowledgeable guide John taught us so much about this beautiful area and the creatures that inhabit it.
