The biggest draw of Santa Fe is the outdoors: waterfalls, biodiversity, and rural culture. Santa Fe National Park spans 5 different biomes over Pacific and Atlantic slopes. Home to tropical birds, monkeys and even pumas, the park spans over the Mesoamerican Corridor and continental divide.

Getting to the Park:
From town, there are four principal access points.
- Two require you to walk or ride in by horseback: to the North, where you can see Bermejo Falls, to the East, where you can hike or wander up the amazingly clear river, Rio Narices.
- Two have unpaved roads where access by 4X4/car will depend on season (though there are projects to pave roads): To the West the Calovebora road winds through the forest taking you by small villages and petroglyphs, a spur from Alto Piedra (not shown) climbs to the Southwest to Cerro Tute (4×4 or by foot).
