Cahuita, Manzanillo/ Caribbean
Is located just south of the town of Cahuita, about 43 kilometers south of Limón, on the Caribbean coastline in one of the most beautiful and scenic regions in Costa Rica. Its main attractions are the white sand beaches fringed with endless coconut trees, a calm sea of transparent waters and the coral reefs just offshore. Other habitats of the park are secondary rain forest and littoral woodlands, home of the three-toed sloth, numerous leaf frogs and monkeys. A shipwreck located at the mouth of the Perezoso River was used to transport slaves in the 18th century.
The main entrance to the park is at Puerto Vargas, located about 6 km south from Cahuita at the main road to Puerto Viejo.
Puerto Viejo de Limón: In recent years, this small village has developed rapidly and become a point of tourist attraction with the corresponding infrastructure. The roads have been paved; a variety of small hotels, bed & breakfasts and restaurants is now available in the immediate surroundings of the village’s center. More expensive accommodation close to the most beautiful beaches of the area can be found further south along the road to Gandoca Manzanillo. Here you will also find all kinds of restaurants in different price ranges.
