Costa Rica: Guanacaste, Cerro Barra Honda summit: any info?

Hi folks,
Looks like we will be doing a Kessel Run out to the coast at Samara, but hope to catch the caves and possibly the summit of Cerro Barra Honda in Barra Honda National Park (under a time crunch). It sounds like there is a trail to the top of Cerro Barra Honda, but there doesn't appear to be any clear information out there on the web. From what I've gathered appears there's a about a two mile(?) track to the top. Clear maps and info are scarce.

Has anyone hiked this trail? If so, is it straight forward? Also, does the park "require" visitors to go up there with a guide?

Thanks for sharing any info you may have.

Return to Mexico, Central America and Caribbean
