|Sector Puerto Vargas|
|Directions *||Sector Playa Blanca is in Cahuita.|
Sector Puerto Vargas is on Ruta 36.
|Info. on my part||- I find Cahuita very charming and beautiful.|
- For me it has the flair of a campsite.
- There are also excursions to the Tortuguero National Park.
- * How to get there: In the area around Limón, it is possible to get into a big traffic jam because of the many trucks. - In addition, there are some bridges between Limón
and Cahuita which are only passable with one lane. This sign indicates that
oncoming traffic has the right of way. You have to be careful in the dark, as you cannot necessarily see if the bridge is single lane and on which side this sign is located. -
To get to sector Playa Blanca, turn left into the village of Cahuita (all asphalted). For the Puerto Vargas sector, drive a little further on Ruta 36 in the direction of Puerto
Viejo and then turn left (then about 700m of gravel road - see photos - to the car park-ing lot).
- In the park: From Playa Blanca (Kelly Creek) to Punta Cahuita it is mostly shady. Afterwards it goes along the whole beach in the hot sun. At the turnoff towards to the
administration Puerto Vargas, the trail crosses a wooden footbridge, where there is partial shade. Between the park exit and Ruta 36 is the Boca Chica restaurant (see photos).
The round trip from Cahuita, from Playa Blanca to Punta Cahuita to Puerto Vargas and from there on Ruta 36 back to Cahuita, can all be done on foot in about 5 to 6 hours.
