Explore Costa Rica’s indigenous flora and fauna on an enlightening walk through Cahuita National Park and then kayak along the beach-rimmed coast nearby. The park is one of the world’s most bio-diverse natural areas and is considered a national monument. While walking one of its meandering trails, the naturalist guide will point out the highlights and provide insightful commentary on the extraordinary variety of plants and animals. Exotic-looking orchids, brightly colored lizards, spindly capuchin monkeys and tropical birds such as fiery-billed aracaris are abundant, so keep your eyes peeled. For a different perspective of the natural world, you will kayak along the shores of Punta Uva, a laid-back, beach-blessed town surrounded by a protected reef. The waters are typically calm, especially as you paddle up a river into an adjacent rainforest full of wildlife. Time will also be allotted for you to explore the coastal town of Puerto Viejo, where you will have free time for shopping and lunch on your own. Note: This tour includes approximately 3 hours of walking on flat and paved surfaces, as well as some walking on sand during the kayak portion of the tour. It is not available to guests who utilize a wheelchair. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina. Casual, weather-appropriate clothing, closed-toe shoes, water shoes, a towel, suntan lotion, insect repellent, hat and sunglasses are suggested.
