Cahuita, Costa Rica – A Laid-Back Beach Town - International Living

The fishing village of Cahuita on Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast is popular with backpackers and eco-tourists thanks to a national park that protects a large swath of jungle and beach. There’s also a charming “downtown” area of brightly-painted buildings containing restaurants specializing in Caribbean cuisine, boutiques, and budget hotels.

Expats are attracted to the small-town atmosphere, warm weather year-round, and easy living…as well as awe-inspiring natural beauty and surroundings full of wildlife.

See below for a video of Cahuita where Jason Holland, International Living’s Costa Rica Editor, explored recently.
