Since 2001, Still One Of The Favourite Experiences Amongst Our Clientele

Cabo Blanco is not a National Park, its title stands a higher status: The Absolute Reserve. As the name suggest this place is reserve for conservation for posterity. It was later in the history of the place that a selected area of its range was open to the public, in order to help the neighbour community of Cabuya with tourism.


In the early 70’s conservation was beyond the understanding of the common sense in the entire country. In fact the decades beforehand experimented a fast decrease in forest coverage, specially in the Nicoya Peninsula. It was then that this land started conservation with the vision of true pioneers. This initiated a movement to preserve nature, a movement that now transcends into the public national parks.
