When you think of Costa Rica’s Caribbean shores, things like a laid-back vibe, coconut dishes and calypso might pop up in your mind. People do not necessarily come to this side of Costa Rica for its wildlife, but if you’re a big fan of Mother Nature, the flora and fauna of the eastern side of the country have a great deal to offer as well.

The National Park in Cahuita stars a splendid eight-kilometer hike along beaches that are cut straight out a “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie. Start your tour from the Kelly Creek station in Cahuita, a tiny beachfront town, and walk all the way around Punta Cahuita towards the Puerto Vargas beach. Apart from the stunning beaches and tropical plants, the park hides a lot animals as well, including furry friends and reptiles.

Here are a few of my favorite shots of Cahuita National Park.
