Cuajiniquil is a small fishing village on the coast of Guanacaste, with about 2,000 residents. Many people in Cuajiniquil live by fishing from the shore, operating small boats, or working as crew members on larger ships, but as climate change drives more destructive tropical storms, like Nate (October 2017), and overfishing continues, it is becoming harder for residents to meet the breadline as catch sizes are reduced.
The town has a few shops, restaurants and hotels, and provides an ideal base for exploring and appreciating the biodiversity and natural wonders of this area. We work and live in Cuajiniquil during our expeditions. When we aren't on a dive, we'll get some rest and enjoy the cow pastures, regenerating dry forest, and mature dry forest.
