Interaction with Guests
As I moved back to Germany, I will not be there in person. Therefore all my interaction with guests will be over the internet. Of course I always try to be available via email or phone, but please understand that there's an eight hour time difference between Costa Rica and Germany.
The property is situated in the heart of Cabuya (on the cone end of the Peninsula de Nicoya), a lovely little fishermen village, close to tourist destinations like Montezuma (8km, 15 min. by car), Mal Pais (8km) and Santa Tereza (10km) and some of the most amazing beaches of the country.
In the village you´ll find a little supermarket, a bakery and various delicious restaurants as well as, the Cabuya island and Cabo Blanco National Park just at walking distance. There is a variety of beaches within ten minutes walking distance, some rocky some sandy, all deserted and beautiful. Beaches in Cabuya are not recommended for swimming or surfing, especially if you´re just learning.
The neighbourhood is really relaxed and quite international. The direct neighbours are all foreigners from different parts of the world.
Cabuya is just a small village, so be prepared for a rural atmosphere, close to nature. You can hear the cows on the pasture lands behind the property, sometimes you´ll have the neighbours chicken crossing the garden (or the neighbours dog) and the howler monkeys get started pretty early in the morning.
If you want to explore the area around the tip of the peninsula, I recommend to get a rental car (4-wheel drive, especially in the rainy season). Parking spaces are available on the property. There´s a local bus between Cabuya and Montezuma that leaves about four times a day. The next busstop is just at the next corner (in front of the bakery). Please ask at the bakery for the current schedule.
Taxis between Cabuya and Montezuma are available for 10$ one way.
HOW TO GET TO CABUYA:
By air: from the San José International airport to the airstrip in Tambor (25 min/60$).
From there it's a scenic 37 km drive passing through Cobano and Montezuma.
By car: if you have rented a car, take the main road (Panamericana) to Puntarenas where you catch the ferry to Paquera. The ferry ride takes about one and a half hours during which you can enjoy the amazing scenery. From here follow the signs to Tambor, then Cobano, Montezuma and on to Cabuya(about one and a half hours).
By public transport: A direct bus to Montezuma leaves twice a day from the "San Carlos" bus station in the centre of San Jose. It departs at 6a.m. and 2p.m.. Be there at least half an hour early! Be aware that in order to get to Montezuma, you have to change into a smaller shuttle bus in Cobano! It´s included in the price!
Cost: 14$ (including ferry and connection bus to Montezuma), duration of the trip: approx. 6 hours.
