  • It was an awesome park. Some of the best things to see are at night! We stayed on the ocean within walking distance to the park. I believe we paid a few dollars to get in.. wasn't crazy. The trail out to the point was amazing! Every so often a trail went to the ocean and walk the ocean until the next trail entrance. We saw tons of howler monkies and a few foot prints from a big cat. There are stops along the way to rest if needed. It poured rain on our way back. Definitely wear boots, it is a rain forest so plan on rain. Don't get to lost up in the beauty..big cats roam as well. We found tons of turtle shell holes after they hatched. This was a truly amazing place.
  • Staff was ... eh. Couldn't answer questions. Thought the park had a loop to walk but seemed the loop would have taken days (check Maps - it's a long peninsula!). Walked an hour in without much change in scenery (good?). Path was littered with plastic trash in different places. Saw a few animals but we were not there during turtle season. Could definitely use some upgrades - no activities for kids, no educational program offered, no water available to drink after hiking. Take bug spray or wear long pants and long sleeves. Take water. Except the ticket counter, buildings at the entrance seem abandoned. Kind of eerie. Closed toe shoes required. Boots recommended, especially if it has rained recently.
