COSTA RICA TRAVELOGUE – DAY 5 – CAHUITA FOREST

by Antonio Gil June. 11, 2021 280 views

Cahuita’s Forests

On land, Cahuita National Park is equal in stature to its marine counterpart. Wildlife includes several types of monkeys, rodents and reptiles. Birdlife is plentiful, including herons, toucans, macaws and parrots. The leatherback, green, and hawksbill turtles use the park's beaches for arribadas, coming ashore to lay their eggs. Both of the beaches that line the park are made of lovely white sand. Swimming, however, is dangerous at certain locations, though signs warn visitors of dangers.

Because of the park's proximity to the village of Cahuita, facilities and roads are well developed. Kelly Creek, south of Cahuita, provides an access point to those who choose to enter the park on foot.

Wonderful captures, not sure why you would want to swim with the crocodiles,   however that warning is there because I am sure people have tried grinning
