Cabo Blanco is definitely one of our favorite national parks. It is one of the least visited by tourists, but the tourists staying in Mal Pais, Montezuma, Cabuya, Tango Mar and Playa Tambor, normally visit it. The park is relatively small but it covers the entire cape south of the Nicoya Peninsula. There are two trails, one of about 3 hours, and other longer trail that runs through the park to a private white beach located across from the park entrance. From Montezuma, it takes about 40 minutes by car, and the same from Mal Pais. Some fauna species of Cabo Blanco include the howler monkey, the white faced monkey, the peccary, deer, ocelot, several species of reptiles, amphibians and many birds. The vegetation of the park is the last bit of dry tropical transition forest across the Nicoya Peninsula, which is why it was decided to protect it in the 70's, when the peninsula was devastated by logging, burning and livestock, which today is no longer the case. It is a national park visit we highly recommend our guests staying in the southern part of the peninsula.
