Get to grips with the freshwater and marine biology of the area, and if you are lucky, spot an Atlantic green turtle!Parque Nacional Cahuita has the largest system of Coral Reefs in Costa Rica, including 6 species of coral, a wide range of colorful tropical fishes and the occasional encounter of a harmless reef shark or sting ray. This beach has a horse shoe shape, with the entrance of the park at one end and beautiful Punta Cahuita at the other end.You will be picked up at your hotel and be taken to the village of Cahuita. There the captain and the guide are waiting for you to take you by boat to the coral reef where you are going to snorkel for two hours in two different points of the National Park. After that we will go back to the beach for a rest and to have a snack with tropical fruits. The little break at the beach is followed by a 1 hour guided hike in this wonderful coastal forest: monkeys, sloths, birds, poison dart frogs, iguanas and other interesting encounters are common. During the hike you will also learn about the history of Cahuita. At the end of the walk, the van will take you back to your hotel.
