About 45 inute walk thru lots of trees, mostly "Ceibas" Flowers, and not too many "Gallineros" (Huamuchil); so I don´t understand why was it named "Gallineral".

You can get aside the Fonce River, which is a kayak challenge along San Gil; and thru our walk, we saw about 10 tourist pass thru where we sit down on a tree, aside the river.

We saw tourists from Germany, UK, France, and Mexico.

Make sure you bring insect repellent or an electric racket, so you can spend time watching mother nature, and not scarying mosquitoes.

The parc used to be indeed a small piece of jungle at the doors of the chaotic San Gil. Some trees are still beautiful. However, mismanagement of the direction of the parc destroyed it: they put electric cables in the trees for a night show, music everywhere, a swimming pool that does not belong to such a place (it was a parc, not a "balneario”). All this can be reversed. However, what will still be destroyed is the once lovely beach, in front of which an apartment house of dubious taste and a motel-looking attraction parc with bad and very loud music have been built.. What a shame.
