The Neighborhood

Cabo Matapalo, known by the locals as simply Matapalo, is a small community located 17 km South, on a bumpy dirt road, from the town of Puerto Jimenez. The area consists of a scattering of eco-lodges and rental homes with one local bar. There are no banks or grocery stores, so make sure to stock up in Puerto Jimenez before heading out. Over the years Matapalo has become a surf destination. It borders a beach along the Pacific Ocean that routinely ushers in large swells. There are several areas to surf, with waves that vary in difficulty. The abundant wildlife also makes this area popular among travelers. Four species of monkeys, scarlet macaws, toucans, sloths, agouties, and coatimundis are just a small sample of the wildlife that one sees on a regular basis. Matapalo is where travelers go to be at one with nature and find ultimate relaxation.

Getting Around

Local public transportation, known as the colectivo, offers daily trips to and from Puerto Jimenez. There are also taxis available to make the trip, or you can rent a car in Puerto Jimenez.
