Cabuya guest house description

The stunning Japanese style guest house is located on the beach by the small fishing village of Cabuya, 3 miles from Montezuma. The sun rises directly in front of the house over the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Nicoya. Costa Rica’s first national wildlife reserve is located a short distance to the south, at the tip of the peninsula. Provisions are available in Cabuya, and several excellent local eateries provide a variety of cuisines. Montezuma,with its beautiful beaches, many restaurants and activities, is just three miles up the beach to the North. There are special spots to swim and explore between Montezuma and the Wildlife Reserve. Dos Iguanas was inspired by the clean and simple style of traditional Japanese architecture.The house is a sincere and successful expression of a natural philosophy that invites surrounding scenery into the living spaces. Your stay will most likely include a visit by the local tribe of howler monkeys. Ask about additional space in our main house.

                                This place is Costa Rica at its best! This was my husband and I's second trip to CR and dos iguanas was everything we could have asked for. We fell asleep at night to the howler monkeys and woke in the morning to see spider monkeys and large iguanas in our back yard. We bought fresh red snapper from Vin (Cindy's uncle) that was caught that morning and rented kayaks from Jim two doors down to do some snorkeling at isla de Cabuya. The hammocks were great for afternoon siestas! The house had everything we needed and was the perfect distance to (and distant enough from the noise) of montezuma. Do yourself a favor and check this place out! Make sure to rent a car. We will be back hopefully this year with family! Sean we can't thank you and Cindy enough!!!!

                                We've returned several times to this beautifully handcrafted house to enjoy sunrises on the beach, monkeys in the trees, bird watching, beachcombing, fishing and getting to know folks in the friendly village. This is a wonderful Costa Rican experience off the beaten path.
