The gateway to this gorgeous, well maintained and managed national park is a bridge from the town of Cahuita to the registration office. Here, you’ll sign in and if you’re feeling generous, donate money for the entrance fee.

The majority of the park is marine based. There is a well-marked and super-easy trail that will lead you parallel to all the gorgeous beaches. Besides being a fantastic place to fully relax and get away from EVERYTHING, you can enjoy some of the best snorkeling in all of Costa Rica.
I would highly recommend a visit to this park, even if you’re staying in Puerto Viejo.
