Discover Cahuita National Park & Puerto Viejo


The Caribbean coast of Costa Rica is one the greenest areas in the country, nature here is astonishing. Lush rainforest, amazing beaches, cacao, bananas, coconuts and tropical wildlife.
Culturally, the Caribbean is also a rich land. Deep in the forest, native populations have settled here for thousands of years. The afrocaribbean community settled along the coast on the 1800's. In fact, some of the towns in Limón (the province) have a Jamaica-like feeling. Many locals speak both English, Spanish and Caribbean patois.

The local gastronomy is amazingly good. With ingredients like coconut milk, curry, fresh seafood and roots (tubers), the flavors will satisfy and surprise your tastebuds.

The Caribbean, a land that once was a pirates' hideaway and more recently a commerce hub, its nowadays a paradise for ecotourism that I will be glad to share with you.

Itinerary

Our jungle expedition begins at Cahuita National Park. Cahuita is located 45 minutes from the port in Limón.
This conservation area protects beautiful marine and terrestrial fauna. Hiking the park trails is precisely a great opportunity to spot some of the amazing wildlife such as tiny frogs, colorful toucans, playful white faced monkeys and sloths. The jungly scenery on one side of the trail and the green caribbean side on the other, make this experience even more enjoyable.

After this eco-adventure, we continue discovering the province of Limón. The town of Puerto Viejo is our next stop. A laid-back colorful beach town. Here we will have the chance to explore the local culture through its food. We will also stop by the best chocolate maker's shop for those with a sweet tooth.

We return to the cruise ship terminal in Limón after a relaxed day exploring the best of the Caribbean and discovering why Costa Rica got its name, the Rich Coast.
