Ruta de las Flores: Visit El Imposible National Park

Visit El Imposible National Park

Criss-crossed by a network of jungle trails, the tropical forest of El Imposible is a strikingly beautiful territory of rippled mountain ridges swathed in luscious vegetation. It lies at an altitude of 300m 1,450m so embraces a variety of foliage. The park was named after a steep gorge which cuts through it and impeded the progress of coffee producers trying to move their crops: eventually a series of bridges was constructed.  

Trek through the luxuriant rainforest along jungle trails to reach viewpoints over the valleys which splice through the park and spot indigenous birds and wildlife. 400 types of tree thrive in the park, and a number of endangered mammals including puma, tigrillo, wild boar and black crested eagles. Adding to a sense of wild beauty and magic, between January and March the air is often filled with butterflies.
