  Get close to the monkeys in Cahuita N.P.
by gramboman

Take a day hike through Cahuita National Park. There's one part of the path that tends to get flooded in by the stream meeting the beach - it's okay to walk through it - but depth may vary. Many of the monkeys hang out at the end of the peninsula. Be careful not to touch any zippers on your bags, or they'll get aggressive. And of course, do not feed them. They bit a girl in the group in front of us because she was trying to feed them.

Address: Cahuita National Park
Directions: One hour south of Limon on the East Coast. Very close to border of Panama.

Review Helpfulness: 4 out of 5 stars
