  Warning Sign

This will be in three parts.

1) Be aware of your surroundings. This park is right on the border with Mexico and there is a lot of smuggling (both people and drugs) in the area. This is especially true of the South Puerto Blanco Road area. You also have to keep your eye open for rattlesnakes, scorpions, mountain lions, etc. Usually they will not bother you if you don't botherthem.

2) Be prepared for the conditions. Drink lots of water before, during and after your visit. Be aware of the weather forcast because flash floods occur here, especially during the monsoon season which is usually July through September.

3) Obey all warning signs. They are there for a reason.
