The population of this reserve consists mostly of indigenous Bribri and Cabecar with their own clans and languages. Your guide will give you information about the community, its history, culture, and traditions.
This community is accessible only on foot. It is necessary to be in good physical condition and to wear appropriate foot gear like climbing boots, or rubber boots in the rainy season, or supportive running shoes in the dry season. From this point you can see the Talamánca mountain chain, Panama, and the Sixaola valley, and the breaking waves up and down the coastline.
In addition, this is a great place to observe the migratory habits of birds two seasons a year. Also, the local guide will take you to a wonderful waterfall 27 meters in height where you can enjoy a refreshing swim. On the way back, you will visit an indigenous family to enjoy a tasteful typical lunch and learn about their legends and culture.
