The protected area, which opened in 1997, is carefully attended to by well-trained guides.

Their presence makes the visitor feel much more at home and safe.

The protected area offers the most beautiful scenery. It is packed with colorful tropical flowers and flora, featuring endemic and rare species.

The region is also dotted with caves, most found in the dense tropical forest nearby. In some caves the visitor will be able to appreciate drawings made centuries ago by the native population.
