  • We walked 12 km in total and we really enjoyed it a lot. We decided to go on our own without a guide and went pretty early. We saw lots of animals, we enjoyed staying at the beach for small breaks...  more »

  • Beautiful, pristine, and secluded beaches. Lots of walking trails where if you're patient you can see a variety of wildlife, birds, monkeys, crustaceans... beware of the raccoons if you bring food with you. They are not afraid of humans and are quite bold! (I saw people lose their lunches to the rascals!) The water is perfect. Temperature and waves were among the best I've ever experienced. So peaceful and relaxing! (Even though the ocean stole my snorkel tube I still loved this place). We spent a couple days here and entered both from Cahuita (busier... more people on this side) and from the main park entrance. Didn't get a chance to experience the full trail walk but apparently some areas close at certain times of the day so make certain to ask the guides if you need more info.
  • Great place to walk under a beautiful tropical jungle. Bring your lunch as there are tables right by the beach. The white sand and clear warm water great for swimming and snorkeling. Rent a guide and see all the animals who call the park home. Truly one of the best beaches in Costa Rica.
