Tips for you
Nice ride to the park, the walk was shady,up and down. Bring a wet towel to hang around your neck,It's hot. At the end you arrive to a beautiful spot. There were monkeys swinging int he trees playing. We brought a small snack but had to eat it very quickly and carefully. I was taking a picture and was swatted at by the monkey. My friend as well was attacked a little and he did nothing to provoke them either. They are not friendly monkeys,keep your distance and wit about you. The lighthouse is cool but a bit unkept. The amenities lacked but it's ok., bring what you need. We thought there would be a restaurant, but I wouldn't call it that. The walk back up to the bikes is steep and extremely hot (no shade). Be fit. Bring lots of water.
