Guide-less (but Guided) Tour of Cahuita National Park

The first 30 minutes we were alone in the park, we didn't see anything despite the fact that the park is teeming with wildlife. If you've got a good eye and can sense movement--I'm an urbanite and have trouble detecting nature--you'll see plenty of howler monkeys, sloths, bats, Jesus lizards, spiders, and snakes. There are plenty of guides who give tours of the park every day. As long as you're behind one of them, they will point out the wildlife to you. If you're "lucky," you may even see the poisonous yellow eyelash viper!

What to Do

Watching Movies

pizza place with daily movies

This pizza place is in the center of Cahuita and shows movies, they say daily but sometimes it is closed for no reasons. Also the movie on the blackboard is not the movie they actually show, so let them surprise you!
