The Caribbean Costa Rica: Cahuita National Park
Cahuita National Park, in the Limón Province, has to be one of the most amazing parks in the country. It was created in 1970 as a National Monument to preserve the coral reefs off the Caribbean coast.
Total drive time from Puerto Viejo town center to Cahuita is 20min. The tour will start at the Kelly Creek ranger station. From here, a professional naturalist tour guide will use his sharp senses to spot animals. You may encounter wildlife along the road such as white faced monkeys, sloths, snakes, raccoons and numerous other different types of species that you will learn about.
After about half way of the hike (around 2.5 km), you will return to the entrance of the National park. Then you have free time to enjoy the beautiful beaches within the National Park.
