Preparation steps:

  • Pack a picnic basket, ensuring to carry snacks, sandwiches, and a good supply of water. Don't forget your swimwear, towels, sun cream and insect repellent. Additionally, it would be wise to carry a pair of binoculars as the park is home to an array of unique birdlife.
  • Book a helicopter ride well in advance as these rides are quite popular, especially during the weekends. You also need to ensure that you check all safety precautions and understand the terms and conditions from the helicopter tour operator.
  • For the dinner by the beach, it's recommended to make a reservation to avoid waiting and to get the best table. Take also into consideration the weather, as evening time can get a bit chillier by the beach.

Some tips:

  • Always respect the national park rules, do not litter and do not touch or feed animals. It's a journey into a natural habitat, not a petting zoo.
  • Ensure you wear comfortable shoes and clothing suitable for walking in the rainforest and for the helicopter ride. Also, wear hats and sunglasses to protect from the sun.
  • Confirm your helicopter ride in the morning, so you would be prepared for any weather changes. Lastly, the dinner by the beach will be even more memorable with a little surprise such as a small gift or a personal poem.
