We can also take you on a SUP or kayak paddle out to the Manzanillo outer reefs or up one of nearby mangrove estuaries.
2 hour horseback riding TOUR
Known for being the best horseback ride in all of Costa Rica, on a working cattle ranch, overlooking the Pacific ocean. You will be accompanied by an authentic sabanero (traditional cowboy), a bilingual guide and your trustworthy and happy horse.
Boat & Snorkeling tour to tortuga island
The boat departs from Montezuma - a tranquil town along the southern coast of the Nicoya Peninsula - and heads along a breathtaking coastline until reaching Tortuga Island 50 minutes later. In route, search for dolphins, humpback whales and manta rays that may be plying the waters nearby. Upon arrival at Tortuga Island, your guide will anchor the boat near the shore and provide you with snorkeling equipment. The water here is clear and warm, and has some seriously good snorkeling around the volcanic rock reef, spot King Angelfish, Porcupine fish, Needlefish, Spotted Eagle Rays and more.
The exciting canopy ride is nearly a mile long and has 11 platforms set high in the gigantic trees. Steel cables connect the platforms which are between 5 and 30 meters in height. You will not forget the experience of flying along our 300 meters long shot over a canyon between the second and the third platform, or the incredible 500 meters long ride through the jungle along a creek.
COSTA RICAN CULTURAL EXCHANGE & FARM TOUR
Known as a "Blue Zone", residents of the Nicoya Peninsula live healthier and longer lives, produce a high rate of centenarians, suffer a fraction of the diseases that commonly kill people in other parts of the developed world, and enjoy more healthy years of life. Learn the recipe to achieve these high standards of quality life based on strong family ties, faith, plant base diet, constant physical activity, sunshine, no smoking and no alcohol. Some of the activities to be enjoyed are milking cows, making traditional fresh cheese and producing raw sugar from sugar cane.
