Cahuita National Park Hike

Book It


Cahuita National Park is considered as one of the most beautiful protected area´s in Costa Rica. It is also one of the oldest national parks of Costa Rica as it was founded in 1970 to protect the coral reef.

Because of its white sand beaches, large number of coconut palms, turquoise sea and coral reef this is a spot you do not want to miss.

We will pick you up at your hotel and drive in a microbus to Cahuita National Park; it is located about 20 minutes from Puerto Viejo. The tour will start at the Kelly Creek ranger station, this is the entrance most close to Cahuita town. From here our naturalist tour guide will use his sharp senses to spot animals. You will meet some new friends along the road such as white faced monkeys, sloths, snakes, raccoons and numerous other different types of species that you will be able to observe and learn about.

After about half way of the hike (around 2.5 km), we will reach Cahuita Point where we will have a little break and may have a swift dip into the ocean. From the Cahuita Point we are going to head on to the other park entrance, Puerto Vargas, from where we will return by microbus to your hotel. If the track to Puerto Vargas is not in a good condition we may return to the starting point instead.
