The Cabo Blanco Absolute Nature Reserve
What to Expect
If you are staying at Montezuma or Malpais Santa Teresa and you’re not planning to move too far around to find nice places to visit, then this is an option, just like The Wildlive Refuge of Curú, this tour is great for those who love nature and peaceful places.
The Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve, besides its beautiful flora and fauna of course, what really makes this reserve special is its location, it’s in fact the tip of The Nicoya Peninsula down south. If you search for it on a map you can see how it faces the open ocean like the prow of a boat, this particular geological characteristic makes it a favourite place for many animals, not only local, but elsewhere species, like: killer whales, humpback whales and many bird species from all America, use this place as a stop point on their journey.
In addition, next to the coast is the Cabo Blanco Rock visible from the shore, which was used as a lighthouse many years ago, habitat of hundreds of birds.
What’s the main attraction
This tour is open to your own opinion, just like many other Costa Rican places it only shows a small portion of the whole diversity. The Reserve has 2 paths to choose (Sendero Danés and Sendero Sueco) one smaller than the other respectively, in wich you can go for a small round trip or you can take the 2 hours walk all the way to the other side of the park. On your way, many native species might show up, so a quiet walking is recommended if your plan is to see them. Followed by time to rest and some fruits and beverages are provided.
The Tour starts at 7 am leaving from your hotel, the naturalist guide will pick you up on a mini van. Make sure you bring water and comfortable closed shoes, the walk is up hill, so take it under consideration, but nothing dangerous or hard to accomplish for a family group.
