Currently this is one parks donation based, and is beautiful! Spotted some raccoons who tried to get into backpacks, watch out maybe you see sloths, sea was so beautiful, don't swim in rip tides though

Busy sea-side Park. Too busy to watch birds with all the beach-goers passing by. Though a Two-toed sloth did put up a real show.

Great hike for viewing birds & animals. Plus, the beach is stunning. We had a larger group (not quiet at all!) of 11 people and still saw a beautiful viper, many white- faced capuchins & two-toed sloths. All of the wildlife was close which made for great photo opportunities.

The morning was rainy but that didn’t stop us from having an incredible hike. Found Carlos at the entrance, a local offered to show us around for a very reasonable price (60$ for 4) and so glad we did. He grew up in the area so told us many stories of the Jamaican descents, what life was like in the jungle and share many medicinal secrets of the forest. Of course the highlights of the trip were the animals he seemed to find Instinctually/ sloths, vipers, bats, leaf lizards, crocodiles etc..... one of the highlights of our trip and most wild animals in one place.

Cahuita National Park is an incredible, beautiful and well-kept park - a must-see for anyone staying in the area. We entered the park via the Kelly Creek (main) entrance located within the center of Cahuita town. We arrived early (about 8:30) and simply happened upon "Cristian," who after talking to for a few minutes we agreed to hire as our guide. If you make one decision at Cahuita, please hire Cristian to take you through the park. He identified probably 25-30 animals and plants, only about 4-5 of which my wife and I would've even seen without his help. He carries a telescope and can take pictures for you of animals, etc. using the telescope if you bring your iPhone/smartphone. Cristian has been a licensed tour guide for 16 years and even has night tours that take place elsewhere on a private property for an additional fee. Unfortunately, my wife and I did not have time for the night tour, but I presume it would be incredible. On a Monday morning, Cristian's rate was $20/per person and we gave him a $20 tip, as well. The park does not have an entrance fee though a donation is suggested. We paid probably more than most - 10,000 colones/each. The funds help pay for park upkeep and staffing. In the park he identified a number of flora and fauna, including Cahuita and Ylang Ylang trees, the latter for which the fragrance from Chanel No. 5 is derived. We also saw green iguanas, howler monkeys, capuchin/white faced monkeys, hawks, ibises, raccoons, and even a yellow pit viper. On our visit bugs were not an issue and the canopy provides copious shade and so sun/sunscreen was also not an issue unless you go out onto the beautiful beaches. We wore comfortable close-toed shoes, which I'd recommend simply because there are many leaf-cutter ants that might crawl on your feet wearing flip-flops while standing to look at nearby wildlife. Directly outside the park are a few restaurants/bars and a market to buy a good variety of produce and snacks. We paid 3 dollars to park at a nearby grass lot, though street parking also appeared to be available, too.
