We visited Cahuita Park for just over an hour. We spotted tons of monkeys and even sloths (a mother and a baby) just swinging from the trees!
We even got to see a white faced monkey come down and try to sneak a slice of pineapple.
The trail was right beside the beach and you were able to swim.
The park was extremely clean and well maintained.
We saw all of this with no guide and the entrance fee was just a donation. :)

What a great experience! Don't waste your money and time going to zoos in Costa Rica! We saw monkeys, iguanas, birds, sloths, and so much more in their natural habitat. Other than the Alma Verde Healing Garden, this was our favorite. Wear tennis shoes you can get wet and be prepared for the mosquitos! We only made it about halfway because of those giant things. However we really saw and heard so much, The jungle gave us lots of love. Pura Vida!

The park is gorgeous with the waves on one side and the jungle on the other. Originally we planned on not getting a guide but we ran into Carlos in town and we are so glad we did! He took us through the lark and he was so excellent we opted to go with him and another tour guide Tito to the waterfall hike. They are just amazing guides! If it had not been for him we would have missed the numerous sloths and vipers he pointed out....not to mention a giant iguana. The park is shaded for the most part and very peaceful. We saw a troop of white faced monkeys swinging from tree to tree. We even saw yellow eyelash vipers hanging around on leaves. The park is run by donation only. The water was a little rough so we did not get to swim
Bring some bug spray and find Carlos

We loved this park. The beach is beautiful and unspoiled. The trail is full of interesting things to see. The hardest decision to make while hiking the trail was where to look. If we gazed at the water, we might miss something interesting on land. If we watched the trees for monkeys, birds and sloths, we'd miss something on the ground. If we focused on flora, well, you get the idea. There was so much to see, one hike doesn't catch everything.

Cahuita National Park is best enjoyed over a period of days. Another interesting thing about this park is it's unique among Costa Rica's national parks in that it doesn't charge a fee to enter the park. Yes, donations are encouraged and a donation is well worth the cost.

The park entrance is in the town of Cahuita, so it's a short walk from the local hotels and restaurants.

The beaches and jungle in Cahuita are a great way to explore the nature and wildlife offered in Costa Rica. We saw sloths, many birds, snakes, butterflies, and some monkeys tried stealing stuff out of our bag while going for a swim.
Please, do not feed the monkeys!!! :)
