The park offers jungle and beach access. We took a picnic and water and stayed about 5 hours. We hiked barefoot down the jungle trail out to the point, about 2.5 miles. Had a picnic, took a swim in the caribbean, snorkeled a little, then strolled back along the white sand beach and swam a little more. Along the way we saw a juvenile sloth climbing from tree to tree, white faced monkees, howler monkees, geckos, caymans, jesus christ lizards, iguanas, and tons of Ibis and Herons. We even had a small stingray come right up into 6 inches of water and hang out while we had lunch. There was one stretch of trail about 400 meters that had a ton of mosquitos, but you could get through it in about 5 minutes and that was the only place we encountered them. If you enter from Cahuitas the entry fee is any donation you like, I think the fee for the Puerto Vargas gate is 10 bucks each. The beach was clean and there were many shady picnic tables along it. The day we went was a wednesday and there were about 20 peple arond the beach and we pased another 20 or so on the trail. You can get a local guide if you like but we just poked around on our own and had a great day.
