Picture this: lush rainforests and shimmering beaches, each alive with the songs of exotic birds while the air is infused with the heady fragrance of tropical blooms. All of this (and oh so much more) can be found in the Curu Reserve. Perched on the southernmost tip of the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica, the Curu Reserve is home to howler monkeys, white-faced monkeys, coatis, deer and many species of birds, and makes for the ultimate pit-stop for nature lovers and avid twitchers. The marine habitats around the reserve are also rich in biodiversity, including coral reefs, mangroves and seagrass beds, which are home to a variety of marine life.
The Curu Reserve is a playground for adventure-seekers, with snorkelling, kayaking and paddleboarding among the many activities on offer, and the endless trails that wind through the forest along the coastline offer fantastic views of the surrounding scenery. If you time your visit right, you may be lucky enough to witness the nesting and hatching of several species of sea turtle, as the area nearby is the largest nesting site in the world for Olive Ridley sea turtles.
