Hike Sendero Punta Catedral



1 miles

Route Type


Added by John Maurizi

This trail is a great opportunity to see White-face monkeys in their natural habitat, especially in the mornings. The trail also has several great view points along the way.

To access this trail, you must pay the $16 park entrance fee. It's a 1.25 mile from the entrance gate along a gravel road but there are signs marking the way to the trailhead. 

Translated, Sendero Punta Catedral means Cathedral Point Trail. It is a 1 mile long trail that circles Cathedral Point peninsula. This trail has been improved quite a bit since the very first time I hiked it. Now, the trail is well defined, has steps at all the hills along the way and boardwalk platforms at view points.

Over the years I've seen great wildlife along this trail. It is best to hike this early in the morning. This is the best chance to see White Face monkeys in the jungle as opposed to along the beach. After 10am, the monkeys descend out of the jungle and hang around the beach the rest of the day.
