The heart of the Forest of Thoughts is the beautiful river valley with its surrounding hillslopes and high hilltops. From the hilltops opens breathtaking scenery reaching the Pacific-ocean. The emerald-colored and crystal-clear Mamoni river passes through the heart of the Forest of Thoughts and is 1,5 km long. This part of the magnificent river has lovely lagoons with sandy river benches broken by little rapids and presents its beautiful waterfall El Salto (famous among the river rafters). In addition to the fantastic river the Forest of Thoughts has three lovely spring-water streams. The pristine streams have their underground volcanic stone sources near the hilltops then run down to the valley, having several fascinating waterfalls on the way. The highest of the waterfalls are Salto de Rana (8m) and El Barranco (16m).

The small parts of the rainforest of the Forest of Thoughts are already rich with wildlife. It is easy to encounter black howler monkeys, white-face capuchin monkeys, tiny tamarin monkeys, tucans, kolibris, parrots and other tropical birds of paradise. One can see colorful rainforest butterflies such as the big radiant blue morpho butterfly, iguanas and other lizards, turtles and the endangered Atelopus frogs. The rainforest parts also conceal armadillos, sloths, night monkeys, anteaters, agutis, tayras, white-nosed coatis and peccarys.
