Cahuita National Park reviews
The park is filled with wildlife, but I recommend hiring a tour guide for the area. A tourist's eye will not be able to spot all of the animals that a guide can. Ask for a guide by the name of Joel... more »
Currently this is one parks donation based, and is beautiful! Spotted some raccoons who tried to get into backpacks, watch out maybe you see sloths, sea was so beautiful, don't swim in rip tides... more »
Beautiful park and beautiful beach. This place has awesome clear water and great hiking trails. It's home to different kinds of wildlife, absolutely worth a visit! If you bring food just be mindful of the raccoons.
Amazing park! Good clear trail with easy footing, it's even got a boardwalk for part of the path. Lots and lots of wildlife but it's best to get a local guide to go with you to point out the animals as otherwise they are really hard to see sometimes. We used Caribe Fun Tours and the guide was excellent: very knowledgeable, engaging and had great English to explain everything and answer questions.
