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

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!

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 visited later in the day, around noon, and stayed until they closed (possibly 4 or 5pm). We saw plenty of animals the entire time. Please refer to my review (dated 8/3/19) for details! :)

Great swimming. The South side is usually calmer due to the trade winds. Flags denote safety: Red is NO GO.
