Cahuita's Tour

Cahuita is a town located about 16kms from Puerto Viejo and has one of the most beautiful National Parks in the country. It is managed by the townspeople, so admission is free and only the will is paid (wich is entirely intented for the care of the park and its animals). The beach inside the park are white sand and very calm.

You can visit the park on your own or hire a guide to show you all the animals that it is difficult for you to find by yourself.

In addition, you can do activities such as snorkeling in the protected sea bottom of the park or go fishing by boat with the town’s fishermen.

We always recommend a local guide who can do any of the tours for you and is a very friendly person who speaks English also.

His contact is:

Soda Kawe. A small soda that cooks everything over charcoal.

Roberto Restaurant. The best place in the Caribbean to eat fresh lobster.

Ricky’s Bar. To eat the typical Caribbean Rice&Beans.

Cahuita Pizzeria. Italian food with sea view.

Sobre Las Olas. Thai and Japanesse fusion food. Sea views and very cool.

You can arrive by car, taxi or bus. You can look at the bus schedules in the “Bus schedule” section.
