  • You can simply do not go to the South Caribbean of Costa Rica and not to visit Cahuita National Park. One of my favorite Costa Rica parks. The beaches are beautiful and dense jungle decorates them right on the side where you can see all kinds of animals! It is a special place for snorkeling.

  • Representative of the Caribbean environment. Only national park managed by the community. Calls for a contribution to the entrance and not a fixed price. Care and at the same time left to nature with a small and safe path that it runs parallel to the beach is steps from the entrance to Punta Cahuita, breathe sea air. Pacas, howler monkeys, and other species are seen early in the morning or in the afternoon. Beaches marked with green flag are safe for swimmers, and also with good shadow. We always remain in a simple hotel to the pure input of well attended a local park, where you can also eat: Hotel Cahuita National Park. There you can see people of all ages. Part of the path can be routed in a wheelchair. Even when rain is cute!
