Isla de Cabuya, Cabuya

(110+ reviews on the web)
Island
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.

  • I went with my daughter on bicycle from Montezuma (rented on healthy banana) to Cabuya, and it was a super experience, the ride is quiet, almost all plane and the coast can go see. That Yes, we must consult before going to get when this low tide, to gain entry to the cemetery. Recommended!

  • You can time this around low tide and it makes a fun experience. We went a little early and had a nice ankle deep wading out. This also gives you much more time as you can go out about an hour before ...  more »
