Walking on the path near the ocean was really great. You're in the shades so it doesn't get to hot. And we spotted a sloth, several monkeys (they came really close), quite some birds, a squirrel, some amphibian friends ;-) and of course several insects as well. We didn't go on a guided trip here. Not really necessary... The entrance... 更多
This is such an amazing place to visit. We saw countless sloths, birds, lizards and a number of well-hidden snakes. Visitors who are squeemish about reptiles should definitely not visit. Also...stay on the trail and always be wary of what could be hiding under the dead leaves. Snakes love to hide under the leaves.
My husband and I had a nice walk through the park. But when returning to the Puerto Vargas entrance gate two teenagers wearing masks and wielding machetes came out of the trees and demanded our money and our backpacks. Teenagers or not they had knives and we did not. We are told by Rangers and the tourist police that this... 更多
The walk through Cahuita National Park, was one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. There is so much wildlife! A monkey walked passed me on the trail and just looked up at me! I was in amazement. Lizards, snakes, and iguanas. Monkeys hanging from the trees. All while walking along the clear blue Carribean Sea. What more... 更多
Where else can you lay on the beach and watch monkeys in the trees above your head? Nice, clean beach. Jungle and nice path right by the waterfront. We took a boat out to the reef and enjoyed excellent snorkeling.
We checked out this park from both sides and recommend that you start at Kelly Creek side. At the Kelly Creek entrance there are monkeys and birds to enjoy and the beach runs along the trail. You can go for a swim whenever you like. We didn't walk the entire trail so the next day checked out the Puerto Vargas... 更多
Cahuita National Park is beautiful and definitely worth going to! Entrance is by donation, but don't cheap out because this place will not disappoint. We were about 15 feet into the jungle when we saw white face monkeys playing in the trees. We saw them again in the trees by the beach right after we saw Dolphins in the ocean... 更多
This seems to be the only national park/reserve/sanctuary in the province of Limon that operates on a donations only basis - and I just hope everyone gives generously. My friend and I hired a guide, because of course in doing this one will always see MUCH MUCH more than if doing it unguided. We were not disappointed. We saw racoons,... 更多
The park offers a variety of wild life and It's easy to walk and discover it by yourself. Also you can stop for a swim in the white beach (playa blanca), which is inside the park. Of course be careful of the waves and be aware of the sharks, we are in Caribbean after all. The odd is, that there... 更多
Awesome hiking along the coast with wildlife all around and the greenest greens one could imagine. A variety of breathtaking views and forest fauna
Well maintained trails with so much amazing wildlife!! I had a local guide which I highly recommend. They can spot all the animals with no trouble. True Costa Rica!
We arrived in puerto limon on the Celebrity Equinox and wanted to go on a "real" hike with a guide rather than a large group thing from the boat. We contacted gecko trails through their website and they were awesome from beginning to end tailoring a private hike. Because we had only one day and were on a cruise we... 更多
We did the snorkel/guided park package for $40 per person and I have to say, if we did not have the guide we never would have seen half the critters that we saw. And our guide was very informative about the plants and uses for the plants and trees, etc. We had a great time and then walked into town... 更多
If you walk on the trail and you will see plenty of animals just keep it quiet! We saw sloths, a ragoon, birds, monkeys, etc And the best thing it is that when you are tired of walking you can go for a relaxing swimming on the beach with crystalline water! Prepare a nice picnic and share it with your... 更多
With jungle on one side and the Caribbean Ocean on the other side this is a perfect hike. The trail is an easy walk. We walked about 2 hours and then turned around and came back the same way. When we were hot we simply walked into the ocean and had a swim. The further away from Cahuita (the town)... 更多
