“Great National Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

We took a few hours to visit Cahuita National Park. We saw white face monkeys, sloths, crabs, frogs, and lots of wildlife. It was a very relaxing trail along the beach. The water was a little rough the day we were there so se didn't get to go snorkling but the water was beautiful. I realy enjoyed walking through the park. It was a nice way to spend an afternoon and it dosen't cost any money. You are able to make donations when you walk in to the park.

“A great park to see wildlife and to be at the beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

From Cahuita you can get into the park if you make a donation. So pay like 500 + colones per person to get in, it's so worth it. We walked around a whole day and saw a lot of monkies, bird, and butterflies and racoons. We also really enjoyed the beach and it became our first choice of beach in Cahuita. We did go there a couple of days in a row and we would highly recommend it!

“Nice national park, finally saw some sloths!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

Stayed in cahuita for 1,5 day. Town itself is small, not much to see and do.

Did a hike in the parck on ourselves, did half of the trail. Saw a couple of sloths (you need to look very good), 2 snakes, small lizards, spider monkeys, nice beaches, spiders, termites, crabs and so on.

It was quite hot, so that's way we did only half of the trail in the morning! Travel light and make a dip in the sea during the hike :)

“Great Nature Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Great scenery, interesting wild life Very nice. It is a 8.3 km walk. The first half in the jungle is the best as the last part is close to the beaches and ends on a road that is about 3km long.
