Tours and Excursions around Limon
Cahuita National Park is located just south of the seaside town of Cahuita, about 43 kilometers south of Limón, on the Caribbean coast in a region considered to be one of the most beautiful in Costa Rica. The white sand beaches within the park are fringed with endless coconut trees, a calm sea of transparent waters, and coral reefs which offer divers an underwater garden filled with marine life and various types of corals. The park is also home to raccoons, crabs (land and water), howler monkeys, kingfishers, night herons, white-nosed coatis, frogs, toads and snakes, which can be seen along the park’s trails, and a great variety of birds.
