Nicoya Peninsula holidays
The eighty minute ferry trip across the Gulf of Nicoya from Puntarenas is an opportunity to enjoy the views and chat to fellow passengers. Despite the presence of various resort developments in Tambor, the whole area still retains a ‘remote feel’ and the village itself is friendly and ‘laid-back’. Alternatively it is a 25 minute flight to Tambor airstrip from San Jose.
Holidays In Nicoya Peninsula
Opposite Isla Alcatraz the small, privately owned Curu reserve fringed with white sand beaches protects a wide variety of flora and fauna. Curu require advance warning of any visits. The Cabo Blanco Reserve occupies the entire southwest tip of the peninsula. Here are monkeys, squirrels, sloths, agoutis and a variety of snakes! There is a 2 hour trail through the forest. With a four-wheel drive in the dry season (can be impassable in the rainy season) it is possible to head north to Playa Bejuco, Tamarindo and beyond.
It is also possible to take a flight from San Jose to an airstrip between Playa Samara and Playa Carrillo and then transfer to Hotel Punta Islita 8km south of Playa Carrillo. The Nicoya Peninsula is a perfect destination to explore the many beaches.
