If you love hiking and you’re in Golfito or near by, you can’t miss to visit the Piedras Blancas National Park, this tour is one of our favorites, The Piedras Blancas National Park is almost inaccessible to tourists, which is a good thing from a conservation point of view.
It is covered in dense evergreen forest that is home to a number of rare tropical trees and the habitat of many species of birds, mammals and reptiles.
There are 14 species of carnivores including raccoons, coati, kinkajou, olingo, skunks, grison, tayra and five species of cats (jaguar, ocelot, margay, jaguarundi and puma). It is, however, highly unlikely that tourists will encounter a wildcat as they are elusive and nocturnal.
You are likely to encounter spectacularly colored frogs such as the red-eyed leaf frog or poison-arrow frogs, tree frogs, glass frogs, rain frogs and cane toads.
Basilisks and iguanas frequent the streams, anole lizards can be seen in the roots of big trees or plants.
This tour is a moderate hike where our knowledgeable certified guides will get the most out of the trails and make this a totally unique and wonderful experience for you.
