Isla de Cabuya, Cabuya

4.6
#2 of 8 in Parks in Montezuma
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.

  • Really neat spot to check out. You can walk to the island in low tide. Don’t get stuck there though! We had a friend that did and he wasn’t a happy camper. The island is where many local fisherman are buried. If you enjoy snorkeling, there are spots around the island with crystal clear water. Very nice!
  • A very quiet place with great beauty, can become very warm and not have water or services of any kind so you have to take everything one may need, also don't forget to check a tide table before going to plan everything and ensure a better experience experience
