Hike the most famous trails in Cahuita National Park and enjoy a cooking class with locals

Exploring the trails of one of the most beautiful National Parks in Costa Rica: Cahuita. A walk through the forest along the beautiful Caribbean Sea, it's a moderated one hour walk in a sandy trail looking for wildlife and learning about the tropical rainforest. With the opportunity of swimming (weather permitted) at the beach contemplating nature and it's beauty. Good probabilities of spotting different species of monkeys, birds, sloths, reptiles and insects. Then we'll take you for lunch to a private property owned by a family from the area, with the opportunity to interact with locals and be "hands on" with a small cooking class. Making the meal even more unique and special.


Once we meet outside the Port, we'll drive for about 30 minutes to Cahuita National Park.
The walk inside the park's trail duration is 1 hour, or 1. 5 hours if the weather is good for swimming.
A short walk around Cahuita town afterwards, then we drive 10 minutes to the property where the home hosted lunch takes place. After lunch is 30 minutes drive back to the ship.

A Recent Review of this tour

We enjoyed a fabulous day with Priscilla, most of it at Cahuita National Park. It was drizzling rain on and off, apparently prime conditions to view a wide variety of animals in natural habitat. We were delighted and amazed -- including at Priscilla's ability to spot them for us and her knowledge about each. We enjoyed a local lunch and also stopped at a farmer's fruit stand to sample and learn about small scale agricultural production. Priscilla was so engaging with our 4 YO grandgirl. A perfect day!
