Cascades Adventure

Due to its remote location, Piedras Blancas Park is one of the least visited national parks in Costa Rica. However, this wilderness-protected area has rich natural resources in its lowland forest, extensive rivers, streams, mangroves, lakes and lagoons. The diversity of its ecosystems allows it to host some rare and endemic wildlife species. Without a soul in sight, enjoy the magic of the forest! You will be able to enjoy a refreshing bath in El Bonito river and San Josecito beach.
