For a deep-sea diving vacation in Costa Rica, we suggest:

Exploration of the canopy (zip-lining, hanging bridges…)

• Descents on zip-lines for thrill-seekers (Sky Trek to Monteverde or Arenal, Manuel Antonio, Montezuma…)
• Trips on bridges suspended above the trees (The Hanging Bridges of Arenal, Rainmaker, Sky Walk to Monteverde, Flight of the Toucan to Dominical)
• Cable-car and aerial tramway tours to compare the different types of forest (Rainforest Aerial Tram, the Braulio Carillio National Park, the region of Jaco, Monteverde)

Horse riding

• Rides among waterfalls and natural pools (Nauyaca waterfalls, the turquoise colored Rio Celeste in Tenorio, Catarata La Fortuna in Arenal, the Nicoya Peninsula)
• Treks on horseback between ranches and volcanoes in the Guanacaste region (from the volcanoes to the beaches of Samara)
• Horse riding on the beaches of the Atlantic or Pacific coasts


Costa Rica invites you to go sea fishing which is equally as good in the Caribbean (Tortuguero for tarpon fishing) as in the Pacific (marlin, tuna…) and also to fish in rivers, streams, on the coasts or on the quays. On board comfortable boats, inflatable dinghies or simple canoes, opportunities to go fishing are extremely varied.


Perfect waves, strong spots, pleasant water temperature, beaches as far as the eye can see… Costa Rica is without a doubt a paradise for surfers from all over the world. We offer surfing vacations for all levels: Playa Tamarindo, Playa Grande, Playa Coclès and Cahuita in the Caribbean, the huge waves of Playa Hermosa, Pavones and its “long left hand break”…


With 1,228 km of coastline, two gulfs and a multitude of tropical estuaries Costa Rica is the ideal destination for sea kayaking. On the Pacific coast the Nicoya Peninsula offers a superb route that follows the palm tree filled beaches and rocky outcrops teaming with birdlife and brightly colored crabs. On the Caribbean coast, the Tortuguero National Park is renowned for the extraordinary network of lagoons and canals within its tropical ecosystem. As for river kayaking, this is practiced on the San Juan River, on Lake Arenal and in certain estuaries.
