Monkeys!!!!!!! We saw tons of monkeys on a little path just outside of this one. It was super cool to see them so close and jumping from tree to tree and it just being the two Of us!

Recomendado! Preferiblemente deben hacer este sendero antes de las 11 am, porque el sol es muy fuerte... Belleza panorámica

Today we completed the entire trail, starting from Jaco. I highly recommend continuing on past Miro because on the backside you do not hear the traffic from Jaco, only nature and your own voice and footsteps. It offers another view of the ocean once you reach the dirt road. That leg is an easier home than the first part.

Amazing views of Jaco Beach from two points of abandoned construction. Moderate grade, fairly well packed, Berry few places with loose footing. Somewhat maintained and plenty of trash and recycling bins along the trail. Well shaded.

This hike is SO fun! The ruins of an old restaurant lay at the top and it’s so mysterious feeling! The art work of the mural up the road on the wall is stunning! Saw tons of lizards. You can see all of Jaco and it’s breath taking. Hiked in February and was the perfect temperature! Only need small day back after we finished we walked down to the office for a swim!

It is a road not a trail, but it is very pretty. Shaded the whole way up. We saw lots of monkeys in the bamboo. Listen for them and then you can look to see them. The abandoned hotel/restaurant at the top is super cool. Take the left fork to get to the walkway and go down to the hotel/restaurant. It is three levels with beautiful views.

Nice trail. There is a part with a fork in the road and it was confusing about which way to go - we went down and to the right. There isn’t really an “end” to the hike, we just went for a while and then turned around when we got to a random house on a hill. Saw monkeys and baby monkeys!

Gorgeous hike if your in the area. Steady incline the whole way up but very doable. There's a part where the trail forks near the top with a sign that says private property. If you follow it back it will take you to an unfinished structure with some awesome views. Wonderful spot to watch the sunset. Overall a nice hike. Stay hydrated and enjoy!

Great and easy hike. The trailhead is across the road the stop sign at Calle Madrigal and HWY 34 (another reference point: Its also across the road from the gas station). At the trailhead there will be a house on the left, some wooden recycling bins on the right, and then a steep paved roadway in front. This paved roadway is the beginning of the trail. It will turn into dirt. Along the way there will some archways on the road for a nice viewpoint. At the only fork in the road, take a sharp LEFT and then shortly you will see a paved sidewalk on the left. Follow this to the main lookout/abandoned restaurant.

The trail is unmarked, the gas attendant across the street showed us how to get there. Once you hike up to the top there is an abandoned restaurant on the side of the mountain. It is so cool! It's overgrown and graffitied. Would highly recommend!

Short hike, up to abandoned restaurant that is gorgeous. Very unique, lots of Mediterranean-inspired arches, and structures. 2 miles round trip for a nice way to start your day. Steep at first and then levels off.

Awesome light trek, beautiful pictures with unique patterns overgrown walls on the road/path. It has a vista from the road and from the old restaurant that was never finished. You can take your hike past that up to where there was once zip lines from the restaurant ruins. Which may be the steepest and most enchanting part of it all. You are surrounded by canopy cover and still can capture beautiful views in a few points.

Nice hike in a beach town. Trail head is across the street from Calle Madrigal as it hits 34. The trail starts out paved and is steep in parts. About half a mile or so, you'll hit the first "ruins", arches looking over the beach. Continue up the trail to the next set of ruins for an even nicer view.
