As we were walking into the park, we were approached by many people offering to guide us through the park and, initially we said "no", but then we changed our minds and we were happy we did. Our guide "Kenry" knew exactly where to look...More
We spent two days in Cahuita and decide to do a self guided tour through the park. The entrance to the park is a donation, there is no set price. I’ve seen some people review that you won’t see much wildlife without a guide but...More
My wife and I hiked all the way through the park. We saw lots of wildlife and enjoyed this hike very much. The monkeys were very cute, but the raccoons made my day. We had seen a few raccoons during our hike in the park...More
The park is accessible on a trail that follows the ocean beach. The best part is from the Cahuita entrance and goes towards the point. After that you won't see many wildlife. It's best to hire a guide as they can find the sloths and...More
The wildlife (e.g., monkeys, sloths, lizards, raccoons) were wonderful ... and the beach and sound of lapping waves was relaxing. Wish I had arrived earlier in the day to have had time to explore more.
Hike from the entrance in Cahuita to the point before turning around. We didn't pay for a guide and still saw plenty of wildlife- sloths, Toucans, howler monkies, and kapuchin monkies really up close. Super fun and chill hike!
Cahuita is a huge park along the sea, meaning you can stop at multiple places to enjoy a dive if you feel too hot.
Be careful though because it is quite long and the track will not bring you back to your starting point, meaning...More
Fernando was our guide, and he was excellent at pointing out camouflaged jungle creatures along the way. We would have totally missed everything if he wasn't with us! He had a telescopic lens, and he took lots of amazing photos with our cameras, too. Ask...More
We went in at Cahuita- paid donation upon entry. We went first thing in the morning. It was very quiet. We couldn’t decide if we should hire a guide or not. $25 each seem a bit pricey but we did want to experience as much...More

Hello, with your timeframe of one day, I might just do a tour the ship likely offers you for transport?? IF not you can take the city bus, can be 1-2 hours each way... Then from bus terminal in Cahuita you can walk to the end of town to the donation entrance and then you will find some professional guides with credentials who are truly studied naturalists and animal lovers that can show you wildlife here that you would never see on your own! It was a casual walk with a laser pointer and believe me.. They know where to look for vipers ect..they are fun. Also, we did not go with a group just hired a guide for the 2 of us! We walked until we decided we wanted to swim. Think of the cool studied naturalist you help secure their job at the park! We made new friends by doing this with a guide saw so much and never will just grab at a branch in the jungle again once you see what is there. it was eye opening! haha!
