Flora and fauna[edit]


Tropical Rainforest.

Get in[edit]

Buses from San José in Direction Puerto Viejo stop in Cahuita. From Limón there are buses until 18:00.

Fees and permits[edit]

Entrance into the national park is by donation. It is a great place, make a fair donation.

Get around[edit]

By foot. The park is not very big and can be circled within a few hours. There are several guides but rather to show nature attractions since there is only one very well marked trail.






Coco´s Bar right in the center. Sunday- Karaoke night!



There are plenty of cabinas and rooms for rent.

The Atlantida has friendly staff and beautiful landscaping. Quaint, steps from the beach.


There is no official camping but it is allowed to camp on "Playa Negra" (Black Beach) for one night.



Stay safe[edit]

Don't swim on beaches with red flags.

Go next[edit]

Before dark. You wouldn't want to be lost in the jungle at night. Don't forget: it gets dark early.
