This half-day tour combines all of the most popular activities in Playa Flamingo — fishing, snorkeling, and stand-up paddleboards.
This tour begins with a one-hour drive through the Guanacaste mountain range. During this portion, you’ll be privileged with excellent views of the dormant Miravalles Volcano. Although the volcano hasn’t experienced significant eruptions in some time, it continues to expel gas and geysers near its base— expulsions that are used by the government to produce geothermal energy.
Take this tour to explore the picturesque hiking trails of Rincón de la Vieja National Park. The tour lasts between 2.5 and 3 hours.
On this tour you will go for a nighttime walk on the beaches of Marino Las Baulas National Park to look for green turtles coming ashore to lay their eggs. Instead of the park’s heavily trafficked Playa Grande, you will head for the lesser-known Minas or Jesus Nombre beaches.
The Santa Rosa National Park is the site of Costa Rica’s most important monument, the Hacienda Santa Rosa. Known locally as La Casona (meaning “large house” in Spanish), this monument marks the fall of filibuster William Walker and his professional mercenaries to a local peasant army in 1856. Today, La Casona is a museum dedicated to the memory of this battle. This tour will allow you to stop by and explore this historical sight.
To learn about how far Costa Rica has come, you need to understand the nation's history. The Palo Verde Boat Expedition and Cultural Tour will teach you about the country's cowboy and agrarian history, as well as how this tradition influenced the emphasis Costa Rica now places on sustainability.
Enjoy the fruits of the sustainability movement when you explore protected wetlands. See a variety of animals in their native habitat. Don't worry, you'll have the opportunity to enjoy refreshments before your tour and after.
Walk the beach at sunrise, dive into Spanish class from 8 am to noon, take an afternoon swim, and still have time to practice Spanish in the evening! Flamingo is a natural choice for studying Spanish. If you’re visiting between November and April, take a night hike at the nearby Marino Las Baulas National Park and watch for nesting leatherback sea turtles.
Surfing at Witch’s Rock is for fairly advanced surfers who are ready to experience some of the best waves in Costa Rica. The hollow waves crashing on either side of this rocky formation have a reputation for being consistent and powerful. They break over a sandy bottom.
This is a half-day surfing tour in Costa Rica’s Gulf of Papagayo. Ollie’s Point has world-class surfing and consistently excellent waves. For this tour you will take a ride out to the point in a comfortable motorboat that has plenty of room for passengers and surfing gear.
