Cabuya, Puntarenas, Costa Rica
Additional Location Information
Cabuya town is situated at the tip of the Nicoya Peninsula and is the entrance to Cabo Blanco Reserve, which was the first nature reserve in Costa Rica. Cabuya is a quaint fishing village that is lesser known than it’s more developed neighbours, Montezuma and Mal Pais/Santa Theresa.

Cabuya is less well known than the other areas and this has enabled it to retain it’s Tico charm and tropical way of life.
Nature in Cabuya
Cabo Blanco Reserve
Cabuya is the gateway to Cabo Blanco Reserve, which is famous as being the first nature reserve in the country. The park protects the wildlife and fauna in the area. Of course for the animals there is no barrier between the park and the surrounding area and many of the animals you would see on a nature walk, can be seen every day around the village.
Cabuya Island Cemetery
This island which is accessible by foot at low tide has been a burial grown since pre-Columbian times. It is still a functioning cemetery to this day and beautiful light processions to the island are formed for funerals. The island is formed of volcanic rock and is surrounded by a reef which provides a home to a bounty of sealife.The reef around the island is possibly the best snorkelling spot on the peninsula, as it’s torquoise waters and tranquil location allow you to dive undisturbed by other tourists. Something that is impossible to experience further along the coast by Montezuma and on the popular destination or Tortuga Island.
