A mountain paradise for bird watching
The Luis Quinn National Park, in the country’s southwest region, covers 192 square kilometers of pristine forest.
Situated in the foothills of the country’s central mountain chain, the park offers breathtaking views, a cloud forest, and meandering trails from where visitors can enjoy bird-watching activities.
It is also a very special place for those who enjoy nature in its entire splendor.
The park offers the visitor incredible scenery that is easily enjoyed through the park’s roads.
Cool temperatures and a soft tropical breeze complement the overall scenery perfectly.
Hidden among its ravines are clear mountain streams which can be reached after hiking through the park’s pine forest. Also located within the protected area is the “Aguacate” Dam.
Reaching the dam is possible through mountain roads aboard a 4 x 4 all-terrain vehicle.
The road leaving from the town of San Jose de Ocoa provides the visitor with excellent views of the valleys found in the park.
For bird-watchers, the park is an excellent place to spot many local and international species, such as carpenters, owls, pigeons and partridges.
The surrounding plant life is also impressive. Visiting the park’s cloud forest is also a unique experience.
The National Park is located in Peravia Province, in the country’s southwest region.
