Hiking in the Sierra del Rosario
From the lake, there are several hiking trails to experience the fauna, flora and birdlife of the Biosphere Reserve with a knowledgeable guide. We will take the hiking trail Las Delicias, which leads to a 330m high viewpoint and continues on level ground to the former coffee plantation Buenavista.
