Tiger Rock is a giant rock, located in kilometer two of the Cerro Ena trail, it offers the perfect option for a day hike or picnic in San Jerónimo. The local legends goes that when the village was founded in the 1950’s a giant puma lived in the caves behind the rock, and terrorized the towns people and their livestock. The trailhead is two kilometers from the center of town, and although the hike is a short one (four kilometers round trip), it is very steep, and filled with beautiful nature, including, a beautiful mountain stream, a small cascade, and dense jungle forest. On the trail you can find monkeys and various species of birds, sometimes even the elusive Quetzal, which have nested around the rock in past years. It is also possible to camp in the pastures around the rock, with permission from the farm owners. Make sure to ask about some local swimming holes for cooling off post hike, or stop by one of the local trout farms for a delicious lunch!
