What Are The Activities To Be Enjoyed On The Southern Caribbean Coast Of Costa Rica?


Costa Rica’s south Caribbean Coast is such an enthralling place for an outing – be it with your friends or family members. The southern Caribbean beach towns of Manzanillo, Cahuita,and Puerto Viejo are perfect destinations for a Costa Rican holiday. The restful Caribbean beaches are a massive draw here – an ideal destination for tourists focused on sun, sand,and surf. If you are not sure how to make your Caribbean experience, an experience to remember forever, then here is our guide:

Visit Cahuita National Park:

Snuggled in the southern boundary of the town of Cahuita, Cahuita National Park shelters the huge offshore stretch of coral reef. The reef features a range of dynamic tropical fish & more than thirty coral species, the perfect underwater park for snorkeling. Palm-lined beaches, white sand,and exceptional turquoise water make the Cahuita beaches wonderfully charming. Don’t miss the huge 5.6 miles Cahuita National Park track placed just at the back of the beach. Appreciate the thick vegetation & copious wildlife all along the way.

Explore Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge:

This off-track shore is a paradise of coves, beaches, isles and an offshore coral reef backed by dense rainforest. Dolphins, sea turtles, crocodiles,and manatees can all be discovered on this refuge. With such affluent underwater biodiversity, Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge is known to be the finest snorkeling &a diving site on the Caribbean Coast.

Puerto Viejo Town:

Situated between Cahuita & Manzanillo, the vibrant town Puerto Viejo is a renowned middle ground. Veteran surfers come here to ride the waves. New hotels and restaurants serving to surfers and sightseers have popped up in this area, giving us one more reason to visit this beautiful place.

The Tortuguero National Park:

Though one of the most isolated parks in the country, the Tortuguero National Park is worth a trip for a unique wildlife vacation in Costa Rica. Regardless of its remote location, the park remains the 3rd most visited in the nation because of its large biological diversity, diverse landscapes,and spectacular scenery. The park has also received universal attention for its conservation of the nesting grounds of sea turtles, which come back to its beaches each year. A wildlife outing here in this park can be rewarding,especially for bird watchers, as the park features a large number of forest floor dwelling fowl species, encompassing Boat-billed Heron, Crested Guans,and Northern Jacanas.
