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.

Here you are one with nature: there is no escaping it! Neighborhood fishermen will be glad to take you out to hunt your supper or bring back their fresh catch to you. In fact, they will even prepare your meal!. Homade jellies by Nena, from local fruits, are for sale at the nearby rivers' edge at Nena's home.
