Grande Beach in Cahuita, Limón, Costa Rica

Grande beach in Cahuita

Big, Very Big, Chosen By Sea Turtles

In the season from February to September, primarily at night, sea turtles spawn here.

It is a very large beach, very few people visit it. You feel really small here, you really enjoy the vastness of the sky and the sea. There is dense vegetation and lakes in which some people bathe.

It is not known among those who come from other provinces or countries because the popularity of the Cahuita National Park steals attention, but if you have time, you can enjoy the privacy of this beach.
