Beautiful park and beautiful beach. This place has awesome clear water and great hiking trails. It's home to different kinds of wildlife, absolutely worth a visit! If you bring food just be mindful of the raccoons.

Lots and lots of wildlife but it's best to get a local guide to go with you to point out the animals as otherwise they are really hard to see sometimes. We used Caribe Fun Tours and the guide was excellent: very knowledgeable, engaging and had great English to explain everything and answer questions.
