Board your covered boat for a leisurely cruise through the Tortuguero Canals. Your guide explains the rainforest ecosystem and points out sights of interest. Keep an eye out for wildlife including howler monkeys, sloths, toucans, bats, aquatic birds, iguanas, and crocodiles as well as exotic flora.
At the end of your cruise, board your waiting transportation for the transfer to Cahuita National Park, where an interesting nature walk and visit into the rainforest awaits you.
Cahuita, from the indigenous word kawe or mahogany and ta or point, was created in 1970 to protect the country’s largest coral reef. One hundred twenty-three species of fish have been listed here, along with a variety of corals and other invertebrates. The park also protects an example of the tropical moist forest, along with swamps forest,s, and marshland. Cahuita is a perfect place for those who want to enjoy a beautiful tropical beach, rainforest, and abundant wildlife. Upon arrival at Cahuita Town, we will get into the park for a 45 minutes nature walk to enjoy the rich biodiversity of the area, along a flat and shady trail that runs along the shoreline. Monkeys, Sloths, Iguanas, Toucans, Colourful Frogs, and many other species are very common to see during this tour. This is a very easy walk for all, from kids to seniors.
On the way back to the pier, a short stop will be made at some local souvenir stores in case you want to purchase a souvenir.
