My family and I did 3 trails while hiking El Silencio Reserve. I wouldn't say any of it was overly hard ( we're 24,28 and 30) but it was tiring. The views are worth the work though . We had a perfect day , sunny...More

Our group consisted of 5 adults (late 30's to 70's) and a child under 6. It was overcast and drizzling, but an incredible experience! We did trail #6, after we drove up to higher parking area. The gentleman working the entrance was kind and knowledgeable....More

Go here. You are likely to be the only ones on the trails and #6 takes you to a breathtaking viewpoint in the lava fields. Every turn gave way to more flora and fauna than we had seen on all trails combined in La Fortuna....More

Wonderful hike. Trails were marked but rather rough. We enjoyed the more natural aspect of the trail and the quiet jungle. Unfortunately, we did not see a lot of wildlife. However, the hike was great and I would certainly recommend it for those who like...More

Great trails to lava. Flow and back. We had all sort of weather! 555 acres here yet cheap entry and great to get away from guided tours with hoards of other people.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to CR. First off, we were the only car in the parking lot for an afternoon hike (around 3 PM). Save 2 hours for the trail at a moderately fast pace. Starts off through a dense...More

We spent 3 hours hiking the trails and it was a very nice place. It has little traffic and the first and last part of the hike (a big circle) are through dense rain forest with the middle part being in the open valley and...More

My husband and I enjoyed spending the day hiking the various trails here. A fabulous vista awaits you if you make Trails 3 to 4. A spectacular view of the volcano and then views of the Lake are your gift.

I saw the turn-off for this on the drive to the hanging bridges and decided to check it out. I was the only car there at the start so I had the whole park to myself. I believe some of the tour groups and the...More
