After you arrive, you’ll delve into the jungle, following trails through the greenery as your guide fills you in on the indigenous flora and fauna. Keep your eyes peeled – the park is home to howler monkeys, lizards and iguanas, not to mention over 400 species of birds such as red woodpeckers and eagles.
