Isla de Cabuya, Cabuya

4.5
Isla de Cabuya, which dates back to pre-Columbian times, provides a serene and secluded atmosphere by the sea. It was used as an Indian burial ground and still serves as a cemetery today. At the cemetery, find gravesites encircled by shells, family tombs, and a two-faced headstone. The spit of land, which is only accessible by foot during low tide, typically has many surrounding tidal pools where you can find hermit crabs and small fish. Bring snorkeling gear if you have it to explore the island's surrounding reef and discover local marine life.

Where to stay in Montezuma

Most visitors to Montezuma stay in the nearby coastal village of Montezuma Beach. There, you can choose from a wide selection of budget and mid-range hotels, as well as bed and breakfasts and eco-lodges. The best choice of accommodations clusters around the bus station, which is a stone's throw from the beach. For something more relaxing with memorable natural scenery, look south to the estuary of Rio Montezuma.
