Cahuita National Park

The beaches of Costa Rica's southern Caribbean coast are said to be some of the most beautiful in the world. Here you can find beaches with sands of every color: black, gray, white, orange. Between Cahuita National Park and Punta Mona in Manzanillo, there are over 20 beaches, each with it's own unique personality - from large long beaches lined with endless coconut palms and to tiny coves protected by coral cliffs.

Most beaches in the region are virgin - with almost no one in sight and the lush jungle dipping right into the warm Caribbean waters. There are many fresh water rivers and small creeks that meet the ocean on almost every beach.

Swimming is safe on some beaches while potentially dangerous on others. Playa Chiquita, Punta Uva and Manzanillo are very safe for swimming and great for snorkeling, while Puerto Viejo, Cocles and Playa Grande are surfing hot spots and can be more dangerous at times.
