Hiking in Santa Rosa National Park
Casona nature-trail loop. The short (about 1-km/½-mi) Casona nature-trail loop from the park headquarters is worth taking to get a brief sampling of the woods. Look for the "Indio Desnudo," or "Naked Indian," path, named after the local word for gumbo-limbo trees. Carry plenty of water and insect repellent. Santa Rosa National Park.
Several other short trails lead off the road to the beaches before it becomes impassable to vehicles. The hike to Playa Naranjo (11 km/7 miles west of La Casona) requires good physical condition and lots of water. You can get a map of the trails at the park entrance.
