Remember that humidity and temperatures are always very high in the tropical rainforest, so wear light breathable clothes. Don’t forget to pack rain coats and ponchos if visiting during rainy season (May until late December).

There are places to change your clothes and showers to rinse off after swimming near the park beach.

If you contact me in advance, I am more than happy to organize transportation and ask permission with the park rangers.
