THE VIBRANT TOWNS OF THE NICOYA PENINSULA

Nestled in the foothills of the Cabo Blanco National Park in Costa Rica is where you’ll find our retreat property - the hidden hill-top gem of the Nicoya Peninsula. The lodge is located in the town of Cabuya, a small rural village on the southernmost tip of the peninsula. The area is home to the dense jungle of the nature reserve, diverse flora and fauna, and a sprawling azure coastline.
Cabuya is surrounded by a number of small towns that each have their unique character; Montezuma, Mal Pais, and Santa Teresa are a few known for their easy-vibe surf and artisan culture.

Montezuma

Known to be home of reggae night, Montezuma waterfalls, the best gelato in the area + great surf.

Cabuya

Cabuya is a sleepy village that is home to mostly local residents, our Jungle Lodge, and the Wildlife Rescue Centre.

 It is also the access point to Cabuya Island (Isla de Cabuya). Only accessible by foot at low-tide, this island is home to the local cemetery. A great walk + insight into local culture.

Santa Teresa & Mal País

Seaside towns known as a surf and yoga haven. This area attracts people worldwide for the laid back vibe, colourful surf shops, amazing restaurants and surf culture.
