  • Our tour guide, Javier was very knowledgable and he made our trip through the park the highlight of our vacation. He pointed out things that we would missed. Lunch at the end was at a terrific restaurant, Cabanas Del Pescador, where we had a delicious trout meal with all the fixings. Thanks Javier!
