Description

When you think of Costa Rica’s Caribbean shores, things like a laid-back vibe, coconut dishes and calypso might pop up in your mind. People do not necessarily come to this side of Costa Rica for its wildlife, but if you’re a big fan of Mother Nature, the flora and fauna of the eastern side of the country have a great deal to offer as well.

The National Park in Cahuita stars a splendid eight-kilometer hike along beaches that are cut straight out a “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie. Start your tour from the Kelly Creek station in Cahuita, a tiny beachfront town, and walk all the way around Punta Cahuita towards the Puerto Vargas beach. Apart from the stunning beaches and tropical plants, the park hides a lot animals as well, including furry friends and reptiles.

As the most easily accessible national park in the Caribbean south of Costa Rica, Cahuita is a favorite among many. It consists of 2,732 acres of land and 55,200 marine acres and was created to protect the largest coral reef in the country. With stunning white sand beaches, a plethora of wildlife and a well maintained walking trail, this national park is a must for anyone visiting Puerto Viejo Costa Rica.

The 600 acre reef has around 35 species of coral, over 100 species of fish and mollusks, crustaceans and sea turtles. There are also a few rivers in the park so a variety of wildlife can be seen such as white face monkeys, herons, caimans, sloths, snakes and lizards.

Cahuita is not overly touristic even though it has well developed roads and facilities. It’s the perfect place for any traveler wishing to experience the Costa Rican wildlife, jungle and beaches in a pristine and peaceful area.

One of the reasons why people love the Caribbean coast is the abundant wildlife. Cahuita National Park is one of the best in Costa Rica to see animals because of the year long lush rainforest.
