Located in the heart of picturesque Cabuya, just south of Montezuma on the Nicoyan Peninsula in Costa Rica, is the Howler Monkey Hotel. With all the cabins in the hotel having direct access to the beach, this is a very romantic getaway.
Cabuya is more sleepy than its neighbor, Montezuma. In Montezuma there are bars, restaurants and night-life that stretches into the morning if you wish. Cabuya is more laid back, but with all the basic amenities you need, including a supermarket, beaches, restaurants and secluded bars.
As the name suggests, the Howler Monkey Hotel has access to the Costa Rican jungles and, yes, here you can find Howler Monkeys as well as their more respectful cousins, the capuchin monkeys. The Rio Lajas, just north of the village, is perfect for bird watching and here you can see kingfishers, toucans as well as roseate spoon bills.
The Howler Monkey Hotel is at the heart of everything that happens on the Nicoya Peninsula. Why not rent a quad bike and explore the local countryside, including Cabo Blanco, the first national park in Costa Rica. Sea kayaks, snorkeling gear, surfboards as well as spear guns (for the more adventurous) are available to hire.
The marine environment around Cabuya is magnificent. Take a trip out to the reef just off Cemetery Island (Cabuya Island), marvel at the colorful fish and other sea-life that lives there. If you like fishing, the Howler Monkey will be able to arrange sport fishing trips for you. Scuba Diving and even surfing at Mal Pais and Santa Teresa are also very popular with guests, and Cabuya itself has some great surf spots.
Since it’s so close, why not take a trip to Montezuma just 7 km up the road. Buses leave every day and here you will find shops, an artisan market, beautiful beaches as well as access to the jungle and the spectacular waterfalls. Here you can even swim in rock pools or just relax in the warm sun.
Whether you come to us for your honeymoon, your wedding, or just to visit Costa Rica, the Howler Monkey Hotel is a very affordable beachfront hotel with a lot to offer for the price.
