The first national park to be established in Costa Rica in 1963 by Swedish couple, Karen Morgen-sen and Olof Westberg.
Now a 1250-hectare home to hundreds of animal and plant species, beautiful coastlines, and thick jungle, it is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the Nicoya Peninsula. Previously an “Absolute Nature Reserve” (restricted to scientists and park rangers), it is now open to the public on the defined trails. This is a great place to hike, beachcomb, and watch for birds and other wildlife.
Closed Mondays and Tuesdays (in order to minimize our impact on the park).
