The town of Cabuya is the gateway to Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve, Costa Rica’s first nature resesrve. Our tour guides grew up in Cabuya and know the park like the back of their hand. 

We’ll take you on a tour of this beautiful reserve and help you identify a variety of wildlife and fauna. We’ll explain the amazing symbiosis between the different insects, animals and plants. We guarantee that you’ll see far more animals when you walk with us than if you take a self guided tour.

Our tour departs from the park entrance in Cabuya.  From there we will take you on an educational walking tour of the reserve where you can expect to see a wide variety of flora and fauna. The 1.5 hr hike leads to Playa Los Suecos in the park where you can refresh in the ocean. With over 140 identified varieties of trees and a wealth of marine birds, monkeys and deer, it’s a wonderful day for any nature or photography enthusiast.
