Cahuita is a predominently Afro-Caribbean community in the region of Talamanca. Set on the Caribbean coast it is a fairly quiet village which borders with one of Costa Rica's nicest National Parks.
The white and black sand beaches, sloths, monkeys and ease of access make Cahuita National Park an ideal day trip from anywhere in the region. Entering on the Cahuita side you are asked for a donation, be as generous as you can since it is this money, after all, which helps in the conservation of the park. This is also a nesting site for the huge leatherback turtle.
