  • Monkey Thieves

    Cahuita Warnings and Dangers

    Many people are still feeding the monkeys which is NOT good for anyone. The white faced monkeys are very organized and intelligent and having become accustomed to getting foods from humans, they have taken to become very aggressive and will take food from you. Now I didn't do this at all, but I had a package of muffins buried in my bag. When I was...

  • Crocodiles

    Tortuguero Warnings and Dangers

    We were told it was unsafe to swim at the beach (because of undertow) or in the canals because of crocodiles or caiman. Personally I think the crocodile thing is wildly exaggerated, but I don't think swimming in the canals would be at all advisable because wildlife aside, the water is very muddy. When we were in the area in 1996, I did wade a...

  • Undertow

    Parismina Warnings and Dangers

    Along the beach (Caribbean), there was too much undertow for much swimming (although I waded). One of the other couples went and sat in the surf to cool off, but I wasn't comfortable doing that. The sand was 'black', not golden or white, and it soaked up the heat from the sun, so it was hotter to walk on than you might expect. We saw a horseback...

    Cahuita Warnings and Dangers

    Cahuita has been trying for some time to clean up its bad image. After a shocking event, locals have been trying to prove to the world that the town does not have a violence problem, but rather that tourists are naive and negligent. I agree with this statement to some extent; if you get yourself into sticky situations you are only asking for...

  • Undertow

    Tortuguero Warnings and Dangers

    The lodge allows direct access to the beach on the Caribbean coast. The beach may look beautiful, but swimming is not recommended due to heavy waves, turbulent currents and sharks! Turtles can, however, be observed here between April and October, where you can see the egg-laying and hatching of the green and other marine turtle species.

  • Fire Ants

    Cahuita Warnings and Dangers

    Hmm I have never had to endure such an experience, so I shouldn't use such a simile without actually knowing so... These fire ants are everywhere and when they bite you beware to endure intense stinging and itching. More interesting are their neighbors, the leaf-cutter ants. You'll see trails of ants carrying small pieces of leaves that they have...

  • Park Entrance Fee

    Tortuguero Warnings and Dangers

    Each person has to pay an entrance fee for the park each day. The tour guide goes in and pays the fee for everyone in the boat. The Lodge does a kind of dodge where if you go for a night tour on the day you arrive, they pass you through under a ticket of someone who left that morning. The fee we were charged in 2015 was $15 each. I was told it was...

  • Rain and Mud

    Tortuguero Warnings and Dangers

    In the rainy or green season, it rains quite a lot. On the Caribbean coast, it rained off and on during the day but it would pour down rain at night and in the early morning, with thunder and lightening. We had an early morning boat tour scheduled but it was lightening and the men who did the tours did not like the idea of going out when there was...
