Within the community of Las Mangas, which is located about 4 km. past the Pico Bonito Visitors Center, a local NGO named ‘Guaruma’ has designed a short trail into the forest, which is ideal for a nature walk. The trail, which was built more for educational purposes within the community, has been created with environmental awareness in mind.
This nature trail is ideal for young children and older persons who do not care for a strenuous hike in the forest. It can easily be done within an hour, and has the added benefit of access to a lovely crystal clear creek that runs from the mountain top through the forest. This is an ideal spot for a cool refreshing swim under the thick jungle canopy.
There is a small fee for the nature walk. Proceeds go toward keeping the trail operational and benefits the local Guaruma programs. For more information and reservations for a tour, visit www.guraruma.org
