Mal Pais is the more peaceful part of the combined villages of Santa Teresa and Malpais. While in recent years Santa Teresa has seen a boom in development, Mal Pais has retained its quiet, laid-back atmosphere with large patches of unspoiled natural beauty. The coast of Mal Pais is rocky in most parts, with some bizarre volcanic formations creating fascinating scenery. Old jungle forest grows down to the shore where rocky outcroppings alternate with pockets of beaches, some made up entirely of tiny seashells. Rock formations on the beach of Mal Pais
In Mal Pais you don't find any shops, offices or a lively scenery. Instead you can have a lot of activities and adventures. At the southern end of Mal Pais is the small fishermen port from where boat and fishing tours go around the tip of the Nicoya Peninsula. The maritime sanctuary of Cabo Blanco protects many aquatic species, and from a boat you can watch dolphins, manta rays, sea turtles, and whales.
From the village center of Mal Pais, there is a scenic 8 km road over the mountains to Cabo Blanco. The first 2 kms pass through a river valley with lush jungle covering steep slopes on both sides. Then the road steepens to climb into the rolling hills of the Cabo Blanco backlands. There are no houses on the 7 km of road until you reach Cabuya and you have to cross two rivers. For most of the year this road is in a very bad shape. Before heading off, ask for current road conditions. The alternate way to get from Mal Pais to Cabo Blanco is via Cobano and Montezuma.
The Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and a round-trip hike takes approx 4 hours. Mondays and Tuesdays the Cabo Blanco Reserve is closed.
