Hiking in Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve.
Officially named the Cabo Blanco Absolute Natural Reserve, this small private reserve at the tip of Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula is spectacularly picturesque with tropical forest, pure white-sand beaches, warm aquamarine sea, waterfalls and rivers, and hundreds of natural sights from trees to birds to monkeys to shells. A naturalist guide will lead your hike and explain what plants and wildlife you’re seeing as you traverse the trails down to the pristine sugar-colored beaches. Due to the combination of sea coast, freshwater rivers, mountains and forest, you can see hundreds of different types of birds, including roseate spoonbills, kingfishers, toucans and bellbirds. The rocky coastline and Cabo Blanco Island are a rookery for marine birds, including a huge concentration of pelicans and the largest colony of brown boobies in Central America.
