Cahuita is a village on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. It is 40 km south of Limon, the port city where the bananas that we eat in Europe are loaded. And 60 km from the border with Panama. The whole village is a small peninsula with cute painted houses. The reggae feeling comes up a bit. The people on the street still have time to greet and be friendly. You feel comfortable in this place.
