Sun, sand and reggae - enjoy the Caribbean way of life in Cahuita. The Afro Caribbean culture sets the tone here on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. During day you can stroll along the white sandy beaches in the national park, take a swim in the warm Caribbean sea or snorkel on the biggest living coral reef in Costa Rica. You can also take a tour to the rainforest of Cahuita. We highly recommend a visit to the refuge of Gandoca-Manzanillo. In the evening enjoy the relaxed night-life in Cahuita or in close by Puerto Viejo. Try the delicious Creole cuisine and let the Caribbean rhythm take you away.
