“Breathless”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

It is a great place to wonder about and see all the natural wonders of Cahuita. We had a lovely hike for over two miles...partly following the ocean which was cool. We saw gorgeous butterflies, a tucan, unique flying bug with bright orange wing tips and yellow legs and iguanas. We heard some monkeys but didn't catch a glimpse. It's a plus to be able to jump in the water too!

“nice hiking”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

The path was very wide and easy to follow. We did not see very many animals, but the hike was still beautiful.

“Beautiful park but quite popular”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Really nice national park. Plenty of wildlife; we saw monkeys, lizzards, racoons, snakes, and crabs. Because of it's accessibility it does get plenty of visitors so you'll never feel completely emersed in the wild.

Be careful of leaving food lying around, even if it's packaged. We watched a monkey steal some guy's lollipop and crackers while he was swimming and proceed to unwrap and eat them both! They are pretty clever.

Really beautiful coast where the jungle goes right up to the water so you can swim and feel secluded.

Definitely worth a visit

“Nice walk, beaches and howler monkeys.”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We entered the park at the Cahuita entrance where you just give them a donation. We had read of people snorkelling from the shore in the park and would have liked to have done the same but after being told we couldn't we didn't. We did come back another day to do a snorkel tours though.

It's a nice walk that is mostly in the shade, but still plenty warm. We saw and heard a lot of little lizards along the way and came across a troop of noisy howlers hanging out above a boardwalk section of the trail. We continued our walk to the tip of the Punta and then backtracked a short distance to where we spent some time eating our lunch, tanning and lounging in the shallow calm water. Although you can't snorkel,we were told by a park ranger as long as we kept away from any reef we could swim in the shallows. We walked back again I would guess about 4pm and saw a lot of rainbow crabs that would rush back to their holes has we walked by. They are quite colourful and have their holes amongst the trees in the dirt and sand along the trail. We enjoy being out in nature and had a very nice day here.
