“Wildlife Everywhere!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

We went during the rainy season, so the path after the first river crossing was too muddy and washed out for us to continue. However, even though we didn't go far and we went without a guide, we saw a ton of wildlife everywhere! Capuchin monkeys, howler monkeys, snakes, skinks, ants, butterflies, and crabs were just everywhere. It was a beautiful place that we hiked twice in our 4 days there.

“Ocean View Park”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

THis park has no entry fee, is right on the ocean and has a very wide, easy to follow trail.
Sadly it was a gloomy, rainy day and we didn't stay long…so we didn't see any animals. We declined any "guide" services, but I suspect then we would have seen animals. We also took the public bus to Cahuita and didn't realize we could have made a loop in the park that would have taken us to a spot where we could have taken the bus. We did also enjoy seeing the town of cahuita.

“Cahuita National Park”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

We saw animals: monkeys, sloths, crabs, funny colonies of ants, lizards, but in July the hike was closed after the river (north entrance), so it was very short.
