The snorkeling tour is a great way to explore Cahuita's coral reef surrounding the tip of the National Park referred to as Punta Cahuita. The park was established in 1978 and has continued to be the only national park in Costa Rica to rely solely on donations. Donations received are put towards keeping the park in up most condition, free of littering and maintaining the safety of the wildlife and visitors in the park. The reef in the National Park is filled with over 240 marine species including wildlife such as tropical fish, mollusks, nurse sharks and lobsters.
The equipment will be provided during the training session before entering the boat. The boat will take you to Punta Cahuita that is part of the Cahuita National Park, 3.5 Kilometers from the Cahuita entrance. From there you will snorkel in two different locations to fully explore. While in the water you will follow a guide, a Cahuita native and nature specialist, who will explain the coral reef and the lush wildlife.
After snorkeling, you will stop at Punta Cahuita where you can catch your breath, relax and observe an incredible scenery while enjoying some fruit and water. While spending time at the point you may see common animals that live in the forest such as Capuchin and Howler monkeys, a variety of frogs, reptiles and birds.
