Natural Wonders
Cabuya Beaches
beachsWith sandy and rocky stretches and just about always deserted Cabuya beach is a haven for beach combers.

At low tide there are rock pools and some sandy areas great for small children, at high tide although the bottom is stony the surf is rarely too high for swimming and kayaking  and there no dangerous rip tides.
Cabuya Island
cemsCabuya Island features the only active island cemetery in the country, which can be visited by walking to it from the beach at low tide. There are low tides several times a day, they vary by 40 minutes each day. When the tide starts to recede a stony path is exposed and you can walk across to explore the island. The tide stays low enough to cross for a couple of hours; time enough to snorkel, fish from the rocks or explore the tide pools.
River Lajas
lajassIf you are into bird watching, hiking or just looking for a refreshing swim in a fresh water river, the Lajas River is the place to visit.

The road to Cabuya crosses this river, so there is no way to miss it, and on the right river back there is an area where you can easily park and enjoy a swim or a hike.
Cabo Blanco Park
caboThe Cabo Blanco Park is the clearest example that forests can be regenerated if efforts toward conservation are pursued.

This great park, extending for 1250 hectares in the outer tip of the Nicoya peninsula, was mainly composed of devastated lands by indiscriminate deforestation in the 1960's when the park was created.
