My mom is 71 not athletic at all and she didn’t have any problem at the Y Challenge Trail, we had an amazing volcanoes view. I am very grateful for the previous reviews that helped me find this... more »
Wonderful park with friendly staff, nice trails and a magnificent vantage point tower. Our guide Jonathan was knowledgeable and skilled. Would recommend this to anyone interested in the cloud forest ecosystem.
Only saw a couple of animals but the walks are lovely & the viewpoint's one of the best I've come across.
