As day breaks upon this tropical "oasis" the steam begins to rise into the atmosphere and the jungle is alive with noise. Cahuita, Costa Rica is a small town on the Caribbean and has easy access to the proportionately small national park that shares its name. You can walk the coastal trail through the park in a couple hours or find your own stretch of white sand to call your own for the day. The magic of Cahuita is that you're guaranteed to see wildlife whether you go looking for it or not. Oftentimes, the wildlife will find you.
