Cahuita is a laid back and vibrant little village in the setting of Costa Rica’s unique Creole culture brought about by its Afro-Caribbean heritage.

It is assuredly a must-see destination for visitors already in the Limón Province. This village is a hit amongst those merely seeking the easy life for a few days.


My wife and I married in Cahuita and we stayed in Kelly's Creek. It was perfect!! Erica was so kind and helpful from the beginning and during our whole stay.  Erica and Nelly helped us with everything we needed and even were honored witnesses at our wedding! The hotel is in a perfect location just by the beach with the magical jungle just outside the window. The whole experience is magical, there are iguanas to keep you company at breakfast and monkeys playing on the trees outside the window.
The breakfast is perfect with amazing homemade food that's prepared for you, everything is natural, organic and very good! We took the duplex, the room is very big and comfortable, although the toilet and the shower is part of the room.
