Playa Flamingo: Catamaran Tour and Snorkel With Meal

1. Playa Flamingo: Catamaran Tour and Snorkel With Meal

Your tour begins from Playa Flamingo where you will be shuttled from the shore to one of two boats. The captain will welcome you aboard and brief you on safety features before you set sail for a relaxing afternoon, sailing along the Pacific coast of Guanacaste. You will begin to feel that you are part of a big family as the staff will be at your constant attention offering you drinks, snacks, music, and descriptions of the flora and fauna around you. Halfway into the tour, the boat will stop and you will be offered to partake in some diverse water activities, such as snorkeling, swimming, SUPs, and kayaking or just hanging out at an amazing beach. After your water activities, you will be offered a delightful meal including desserts. Then the music will soothe you as the captain pulls up anchor and begins your slow sail back to shore while allowing the gentle movement of the boat to soothe your soul. The final moments pulling into shore will be livened up with some music to wish you well on your way. The crew onboard is strongly focused on providing you with an unforgettable memory, as soon as you get on the catamaran you'll feel the Pura Vida experience. Sit Back, Relax and Enjoy.

From Tamarindo: Zip-Line and Rafting Full Day Adventure Tour

2. From Tamarindo: Zip-Line and Rafting Full Day Adventure Tour

Kick-start your full day of outdoor thrills bright and early led by your private guide. This small-group tour will give you the opportunity to try your hand at rock climbing, horse riding, water tubing or river rafting, as well as enjoying a canopy tour. Begin your journey either water tubing or rafting down the peaceful waters of the Colorado River, meandering your way through its verdant canyon surrounded by steep sides. Next, enjoy the thrill of zip-lining over the canyon through the course of eight zip-lines that zig and zag across it. If you're feeling up for more, you have the choice to rappel down into the canyon and rock climb back up. Savor traditional local flavors over lunch, taking the opportunity to snap some pictures of the impressive backdrop. Get back on the adventure track, and horse ride along the mighty foothills of the Rincón de la Vieja volcano, making your way to its hot springs. Here, relax in a natural mud bath and ease into the end of your day before being dropped off at your accommodation.

Playa Flamingo: Chartered Sailboat Tours with Snorkeling

3. Playa Flamingo: Chartered Sailboat Tours with Snorkeling

You are chartering your own private yacht and crew. You will not be crammed aboard with 30-70 other booze cruisers. You will be able to enjoy the day out with only your group on a real sailboat. The Cover-girl, Serendipity, is a classy 50 foot Beneteau Oceanis (she was featured on the cover of Sail Magazine) and is operated by the most experienced, professional and safest crew in the bay - with captains that have sailed the world! You will start the day off by sailing up (or down) the beautiful coastline. There is no set "tour" - each day is different based on the winds, tides and what the ocean is offering that day. And because these charters are private, you will get a say in this course: If you want to sail more, fish more or swim more, just let the captain know. The captain will find an anchorage where you will have the opportunity to swim or snorkel with an experienced guide. All the equipment for fishing and snorkeling will be provided. Being uniquely positioned close to the pristine Santa Rosa National Park, this area of the coastline has been beautifully protected, and it is the crew's intention to appreciate and explore while having a minimal impact on the natural flora and fauna in the area by: - Only promoting environmentally friendly products (reef safe, non-aerosol sunscreen) - Never serving on single use plastic - Using wind energy whenever possible - Snorkeling responsibly and only supporting sustainable fishing - Taking initiative for the marine life (anti-trawling petitions)

A must! The guides are so friendly and fun. A shuttle picked us up right on time. We took a small boat to the catamaran and had a leisure ride out to a cove for snorkeling. On the way there we saw a sea turtle, and on the way back we saw dolphins. It was amazing! Drinks were available the whole time, and they prepared a great taco dinner.

It was rainy and cloudy, but still a very enjoyable outing. Crew was great. Highly recommend.
