  Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica

The Nicoya Peninsula is known for its sapphire waters that curl into perfect waves up and down the coast. It is the perfect location to hunker down on a pristine patch of sand and soak up some sun or ramble down rugged roads, fording rivers and navigating ridges with spectacular coastal views.

This boot-shaped peninsula straddles two of Costa Rica’s most beautiful provinces. The untouched scenery, lively jungle and rugged terrain all come together in the kaleidoscopic beauty that this country is so well known for.

On the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula, located just 30 minutes from Tambor airport, Cabuya has been described as the ‘closest thing to paradise you can find in Costa Rica.’ One of the most remote towns on the coastline, Cabuya is a delightful breath of fresh air, tucked away from tourism and the hectic nature of day to day life.

Characterized by its pristine beaches, glassy surf breaks, dramatic waterfalls and rugged jungle, Cabuya is a slice of untouched wilderness where the ocean breeze will lull you into a world that feels very far away.
