The hike is a bit of a challenge because the trail says it’s only 8km but in reality it’s more like 12km to go back and forth but if you love hiking and nature this is a great activity if you’re in the Montezuma area.

Long trek through nice dry jungle. Saw Deer, Coati, Monkeys, Birds, Iguana. Beach looked amazing but was it worth 2 hours of sweat? You be the judge.
