Framed by lush and virgin forests, its protected terrains have long been recognized as some of the world’s most beautiful and exotic landscapes.

The park’s diverse climates offer a unique backdrop to a wide range of attractions from white sand beaches bounded by huge rocks inside the sea, mangroves, and coral reefs in the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean sea to dry forests to the highest coastal mountains the world.
