Cahuita National Park is a smaller park, but is one of the most popular though. People are drawn to the beautiful beaches, the reef and reef life, and the dense coastal rain forest. In fact, the coral reef is the only mature coral reef on the entire Atlantic Coast, home to smooth brain and Elkhorn corals.

The forest provides a home to three sloths, opossums, fiddler crabs, raccoons, white-nosed coati and white faced capuchins.

The town of Cahuita is bordered to the south by Cahuita National Park, and Playa Negra to the north.
