Cahuita National Park
Cerere Biological Reserve
In the foothills of the Talamanca Mountain Range,
southwest of La Estrella Valley, 45 Km from the port of Limon.
This zone is criss-crossed by countless rocky rivers with
rapids and waterfalls, some reaching several meters in height.
It is interesting to note that the name of the Reserve, taken
from the Bri-Bri Indian language, has to do with rain. "Hitoy"
means wooly, describing the algae and moss- covered river
stones, and "Cerere" means clear waters. Most of
the trees in the upper elevations are more than 30 meters
tall and the emergent trees top 50 meters. The fauna is rich
and varied, although most species either live in the treetops
or are nocturnal and therefore are not usually seen. Some
mammals inhabiting the area are the three-toed sloth, silky
anteater, four-eyed opossum, collared peccary, and howler
and white-faced monkeys. 115 species of birds have been observed
including the Montezuma oropendola, which congregates to build
large numbers of hanging nests in a single tree, vulture,
chizo parrot, salty-tailed trogon and hummingbirds, among
