Guanacaste’s weather is perfect for snorkeling tours – hot and sunny! The Pacific Ocean along the Guanacaste coast is full of marine life, and with almost always clear conditions, you can see a lot. Keep an eye out for big schools of Jack Fish, eagle rays, manta rays, sea turtles, dolphins and whales. Plus, you don’t need a wetsuit in the tropical water.
Combine a snorkeling tour with sailing on a luxury catamaran along the Guanacaste coast by both Tamarindo and Coco Beach. Known as the “Rolls Royce” of day charter sailing catamarans in Costa Rica, these tours include lunch, an open bar, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, and simply relaxing.
Costa Rica Tubing Tours on Rio Negro
There’s nothing like a day of exciting fun bouncing and splashing down a cool, crystal clear tropical river under the hot Guanacaste sun. On the Rio Negro (Black River) Tubing Adventure at Hacienda Guachipelin, you ride 5 km (3 miles) of class 2 and 3 rapids in special, individual river tube rafts that are designed with handles and protective bottoms. Guides are with you the whole time to ensure your safety.
Another cool water adventure at Hacienda Guachipelin – one of the best places for Rincon de la Vieja tours – is waterfall canyoning. Rappel down a cascading waterfall and splash into the pool below. Then climb back up the rock wall and do it again, this time with a Tarzan-style swing!
This Costa Rica whitewater rafting tour is a lot of fun and thrilling as you plunge through twists, turns and drops down 8 miles of intense class 3-4 rapids. If that’s not enough, the beautiful scenery along the way will take your breath away.
Want a water adventure in Costa Rica that is a little more relaxing? The gentle float tour down the Corobici River is just the ticket. While your guide rows the raft, you get to relax and enjoy the beautiful nature and interesting wildlife, including exotic tropical birds, monkeys, iguanas and other animals of the area. This is a great Guanacaste tour for families.
