Slap Hands is a popular game for kids, and also has alot of adults joining the craze. The object of the game is to continue having your hands below the opponent and keeping this position by turning your hand over and slapping the other player. Here at the park, there is a statue dedicated to the game that is very interesting.
Enjoy your time in the park, and be careful not to lose to the statue!

There are hiking trails throughout the park. You'll also find birdwatching at the bird park located just outside of the entrance to the Parque Nacional. Of course, you can speed up the river on one of the Macuco Company's speed boats. You can also go repelling off of the cliffs along the river. For information on all of these activities, ask at the tourist information booth at the Welcome Center.
Well if you consider hiking, rafting r canoeing a sport. Besides this there is no other sports travel related stuff here.
