Take a moment to settle into Cahuita's vibe with a long stroll on the white sands of Playa Blanca. You'll find the earth's spin slows down like a revolving door you've just stepped out of. Walk the hard-packed sandy trails of Cahuita National Park, enjoy a swim in the waves of Playa Blanca or a horseback ride in the surf along Playa Grande.
Take up surfing in Playa Negra and snorkel with a school of tropical fish among 35 species of reef living off the coast of the national park. Wake up early for off-shore tarpon fishing or join in a bird watching tour and witness the flight of Costa Rica's colorful fowl. Nearby canopy tours in Puerto Viejo, offer excursions in the air along a series of zip lines through the trees in the Lower Talamanca Mountains.
