Our family went there twice and LOVED it. We saw Capuchins, sloths, 3 eyelash vipers, a boa, bats and more! Unfortunately, we saw people (including a guide) feeding the moneys. So bad for the animals. I think the park tries to put rangers around to...More

My friend and I travelled 16 km (each way) on cruiser bikes from Puerto Vieja de Talamanca to Cahuita National Park. We bypassed the Puerto Vargas ranger station, the official entrance. Instead we entered through the Kelly Creek southern entrance (next to town) to avoid...More

We visited this area last week. We packed lunch and hiked out along a path to a beautiful spot on a quiet beach. Saw lots of wildlife. Found a shady spot on the beach to eat and play in the clear blue water.

Here the entry is for “free” they only ask for a donation for keeping the area clean. I find it on one hand good but on the other one there’s the kind of people who only give the minimum and don’t value their work... It’s...More

I think Cahuita would get you in closer proximity to the rain forest and snorkeling. Use the Cahuita entrance to to park to see the most animals (and go early to get ahead of the cruise ship tours). The park opens at 8:00 am. More
