Lying on Costa Rica’s attractive Caribbean coast Cahuita National Park encompasses 1,067 hectares of land and over 22,400 hectares of ocean. The park’s coconut palm-lined light sandy beach is great for relaxing, and the ocean water is always comfortably warm for bathing. The park contains the largest coral reef in Costa Rica that is rich with marine life. Snorkelers will enjoy searching for varied creatures such as sea urchins, angel queen fish, blue parrot fish, sponges and more! The park’s land habitat is composed of several ecological zones including swamp forest, rainforest, littoral woodlands and coastal zone and is great for bird watching and seeing other wildlife including iguanas, monkeys and sloths!
