Los Rápidos Campground – Open all year round
Many trail crossings, stay on the main trail.
The trail starts next to the entrance to the campground and is very appropriate for bird watching.
Look out for markings as there are lots of side trails and easy to get disorientated.
Take the same trail back to the start at the bridge over the Manso river.
