Santa Teresa: Cabo Blanco National Park Costa Rica

Cabo Blanco was the first national park that was created in Costa Rica, in 1963. The nature reserve covers 1172 hectares of humid tropical forest and is a must-see for any nature lover.

The main trail leads you to the white sand beach in front of the Cabo Blanco Island. Among the animals in the reserve you find howler and capuchin monkeys, deer, coatis, anteaters, small wild cats, a great variety of birds, bats, butterflies and other insects.

Although Mal Pais is located directly at the side of the reserve, the only entrance to Cabo Blanco is 9 km away, on the other side of the peninsula.
