It has a surface of 122,000 hectares.

Local flora includes mosses, brackens, orchids, cans, and several types of bushes, also the ulcumano (Podocarpus rospigliossi and Podocarpus glomeratus), the Diablo fuerte trees (Podocarpus oleifolrus and Podocarpus utilior), cedars (Cedrela lilloi and Cedrela mountain), walnut trees (Juglans neotropica), oak trees (Lauraceas) among others.
