We walked the trails and had a great time taking in the sights and sounds. Impressive trees, iguanas, monkeys, and birds. It was hot and humid so be sure to bring a water bottle.

We visited this park with Franklin Sanchez as our guide. He made our visit exceptional! We really wanted to see Toucans and he made it happen!

We arrived at the park entrance by 6:30 and were able to hire a bird guide, Maurice Vasquez who knew this park and his birds inside and out. This park is natural habitat to so many species. In our 3 hours with Maurice we saw approximately 45 species of birds, 3 species of bats and White Faced Monkeys. He shared his knowledge about the plant life as well. Highly recommend a visit especially if you are a birder.

My wife and I had the pleasure of having Freddy Villarreal Aguna as our licensed guide. We joined him and a group of pharmacy students on a tour of Carara National park. No wonder he was leading these students. Besides being an expert on birds, he proved to be extremely knowledgable on the pharmacological value of many of the parks plants, he was knowledgable on its insects as well as the historical use of the parks resources going back a millennia. He was a natural teacher with a keen eye, a sense of humor and a generous spirit.

My husband and I, and two friends, had an extraordinary 4 hour guided tour with Carlo Z in Caracas National Park. He was a great teacher, excellent at spotting birds and other animals, and describing the flora and pressures on the ecosystem. He is also simply a lovely man. I would highly recommend him for a tour of this park. Also there are two options in trails: one was built using universal design principles so it is inclusive for people with all ability levels. It included a paved path for w/c users, and a rope-guide with carved models of animals for blind and vision impaired folks. The other is unpaved-- requiring more knowledge of where to go and how to navigate the paths. Both are beautiful. This will be a highlight of our visit!
