Cahuita is a huge park along the sea, meaning you can stop at multiple places to enjoy a dive if you feel too hot.
Be careful though because it is quite long and the track will not bring you back to your starting point, meaning...More
Fernando was our guide, and he was excellent at pointing out camouflaged jungle creatures along the way. We would have totally missed everything if he wasn't with us! He had a telescopic lens, and he took lots of amazing photos with our cameras, too. Ask...More
We went in at Cahuita- paid donation upon entry. We went first thing in the morning. It was very quiet. We couldn’t decide if we should hire a guide or not. $25 each seem a bit pricey but we did want to experience as much...More

Hello, with your timeframe of one day, I might just do a tour the ship likely offers you for transport?? IF not you can take the city bus, can be 1-2 hours each way... Then from bus terminal in Cahuita you can walk to the end of town to the donation entrance and then you will find some professional guides with credentials who are truly studied naturalists and animal lovers that can show you wildlife here that you would never see on your own! It was a casual walk with a laser pointer and believe me.. They know where to look for vipers ect..they are fun. Also, we did not go with a group just hired a guide for the 2 of us! We walked until we decided we wanted to swim. Think of the cool studied naturalist you help secure their job at the park! We made new friends by doing this with a guide saw so much and never will just grab at a branch in the jungle again once you see what is there. it was eye opening! haha!
