Cahuita town sits just south of the Cahuita National Park which offers tourists great beaches as well as a lush coastal rainforest and some fabulous coral reef to explore and discover. Cahuita is a fantastic place to relax away, its popularity is rapidly increasing as its neighboring town of Puerto Viejo de Talamanca is fast becoming one of Costa Rica’s top adventure destinations.
The beaches in this region are picture perfect with trails leading from here into a coastal forest nearby. Within walking distance of town, these beaches are an excellent place to chill out. For those who are interested in just spending their time at the beach, there is plenty to do out here. Snorkeling is at its best during the months of March to May and September to December. With a number of dive rental shops in the area as well, you should find no problems here exploring the spectacular underwater coral reef. A great place to go swimming is Playa Negra, which sits on the northwest end of Cahuita. If you like, you can also go sport fishing off the coast to catch a wide array of fish.
