Beware of Scammers!
Totally different here than it was several years ago. Along the way there are tourist hackers everywhere acting as Guides. Avoid! To buy our tickets, we must walk along the tourist street to the entry of the Park.
The entry starts with a trail along a board walk or along the asphalt route through the park. The trail is congested with tourists and guides. Hardly an animal to see. Animals say “Too many people. Stay Away!”.
Most tourists come here to take the trail to the beach. On a positive note the beach is lovely…maybe that’s the highlight of the day for many.
Punta Catedral …Check 123
In the past the hike started at the base of the hill to Punta Catedral. Not anymore.
When we reach Punta Catedral …no signage depicting the height or distance to loop the hill. We climb numerous steep steps, up and down. We were not sure if we are at the top or how much further we have to climb. An older couple were exhausted. They decided to turn around to exit. Later, we realized when they left we were almost at the end of our hike to ground level. Signage is required!
