The largest town in the Caribbean Southern Coast is Cahuita. There is a four mile natural trail leads from Cahuita to Puerto Vargas, beyond Cahuita Point. The walk takes about two hours, but hikers will definitely want to stop frequently for a picnic, for a swim in warm Caribbbean waters, to gate at the Howler Monkeys in the tree top high overhead or to focus their binoculars on a Green Ibis.
The National Park was formed to protect one of the living reefs in Costa Rica. Unfortunately, sedimentation from expanding banana plantation and deforestation in the Talamanca Mountains and the last 1991 earthquake have killed much of the reef close to the shore.
Snorkelers can try their luck near Cahuita Point or Puerto Vargas. In these waters, scientists have counted 35 species of coral, including elk horn, brain coral and 123 of tropical fish. Snorkeling equipment is available.
