Cabo Blanco Absolute Nature Reserve
The oldest protected area in Costa Rica, the Cabo Blanco Absolute Nature Reserve was created in 1963 by Scandinavian pioneer couple, Olof Wessberg and Karen Morgenson. Situated at the southernmost point of the Nicoya Peninsula, the Cabo Blanco Absolute Nature Reserve encompasses 1,172 hectares of pristine dry tropical forest and Pacific lowland tropical forest. It is a very beautiful area with undisturbed beaches that can be visited by hiking scenic trails. At the tip of the Peninsula, 2 km offshore, is the Cabo Blanco Island – a white rocky crag where you can see many Magnificent Frigate birds, Brown Pelicans and Brown boobies.
