Gaital National Park - Anton Valley

El Gaital, Monumento Nacional - El Valle de Anton

The Gaital National Park is a 335-hectare (827-acre) nature reserve at the North edge of Anton Valley (El Valle de Anton). The Spanish name of the park is Monumento Natural Cerro Gaitl. The protected area of the national park includes Cerro Gaitl, Cerro Pajita, and Cerro Caracoral.

The peak of Cerro Gaitl rises more than 1,200m (3,500 feet) above sea level. On a clear day, one can see both oceans, the Pacific and The Caribbean.

Wildlife

The lush wilderness that covers it is home to more than 300 bird species, including such spectacular creatures as the red-legged honeycreeper, bay-headed tanager, and blue-crowned motmot. The bird-watching is best along the edges of that protected area, since its dense foliage allow the birds to hide easily.

Gaital also protects the habitat of the rare golden frog (Atelopus zeteki), which has been wiped out in the wild by a fungal disease during the past decade. photo by Mario Urriola

Getting there

There are at least two ways to climb Cerro Gaitl. 1. Take Central Street through the town and pass The Male Falls (El Chorro El Macho). On the Right Hand Side there is an entrance to the National Monument. ANAM office at Gaital National Park

2. There is a trail that begins just west of Los Mandarinos. The hike up and back takes two to three hours, depending on how much bird-watching you do. It requires good shoes and decent physical condition, and is best done with a guide.
