Beach Nature / Park
Relax in seclusion at Playa Chiquita, a small, untouched beach nestled in the jungle. An abundance of palm trees line the beachfront, with white sand dipping into crystal blue water. Explore vibrant coral reefs while snorkeling, or test your surfing skills among the waves. Be sure to stay within the designated surf areas, as the waters can get rough with rips. To reach the beach, take one of the trails connecting from the main road. When exploring the habitat, look out for monkeys, toucans, and sloths.
