Mirador El Silencio reviews
Very diverse area. We looked for a bit longer and challenging hike at least for 5-10km so we chosen this park and the longest trail around (about 2 hours). We very amazed how diverse was the park... more »
Totally worth the $10 a person! We saw tons of wildlife (monkeys, coatis, birds). We spent about 3 hours there and hiked all the trails. The trails can be a little difficult, especially in the heat... more »
We had a guided hike of trail #6 (part way up the side of the volcano) and trail #4 (through the jungle). Our guide was very personable and knowledgeable. The scenery was fabulous. It was super windy on our volcano hike. We heard and smelled monkeys on the jungle hike. We saw lots of birds and gorgeous plants. We were served fresh fruit at the end of the hike which was very enjoyable. On the way to the trailhead, the driver spotted a sloth way up in a tree. We stopped and the guide used a scope so we could all see it. We were even able to take photos through the scope. I would recommend this tour.
We thought this was the national park but it wasn't. The trails were still very pretty. $15 per adult (same price as the national park). There were 2 4 kilometer loops not that bad of a hike
