    ATV trip to Cabuya--Cabuya Tree

    Cabuya Tree

    There is a fig tree in Cabuya over 500 years old according to locals. There is one main road and it goes right by this immense tree----definitely worth a trip and a stop to feel the oldness of this magnificent tree.

    ATV trip to Cabuya-Rainsong Sanctuary

    We rented an ATV for 2 days ($130) and wanted to visit Cabuya on the other side of the peninsula. We figured out the right road to take and off we went----Mainly we wanted to visit the Rainsong Wildlife Sanctuary, which we had seen a Youtube video about...Mary keeps animals that are hurt or orphaned until they can be re-released into the jungle again. While there, we saw a group of wild white-faced capuchin monkeys come through...great timing!
    Well worth the $10 per person fee, which hopefully goes to helping more animals.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a small surf shop in the middle of Santa Teresa’s on the corner just down from the grocery store called Sh_t Hole Surf Shop. It si a little hard to find but when you do, just drop in it is a nice place that rents surfboards and gives surf lessons. There is a good looking American kid inside that lives in Santa Teresa and he knows all the good surf location for different waves and also give great surf lessons. His name is ChanMan and locals him Chino, he has an email malpaissurfing@gmail.com . He knows all the surf locations so hire him for a lesson or a tour- he has a 4 wheel drive to take you to those out of the way surf spots for the day or half day, I promise you will not be disappointed . If you are on a budget he knows the best places to eat, places to stay and best clubs for nite-life. Have fun!
