Cahuita National Park Costa Rica
By Margot Millier Margot Millier Section editor

Discover Cahuita National Park

On the Caribbean coast, the Cahuita National Park is famous for its white sand and coconut trees, but most of all for its coral reef, home to many underwater species such as sea urchins and parrot fish, and on land, for its multiple howler monkeys.
