There is a small island in the Gulf of Nicoya in Costa Rica where the only human inhabitants are dead. The only way to reach the cemetery of Cabuya Island, also known as “Cemetery Island,” is to walk across the rocks of the sea floor at low tide. Twice each day, the ocean will part to allow those who dare to trek from the mainland beach of Cabuya to the island. Where the rocky seafloor trail meets the island, there is a signposted entryway on the right. Those that venture through it will be met by a wooded pathway that leads to the tombs and gravestones of those buried there. The locals believe the island is haunted, as many of them swear they have heard voices coming from it in the night.
