Some other beaches nearby that are within driving distance: Playa Tortuga (Ojochal), Playa Ventanas (Ojochal), Playa Hermosa (Uvita)
Awesome "surf outfits" not included. We are located right next to a nice beach break, which can range from small to pretty decent. It's a beginner's dream wave. We offer board rentals and lessons. We also have boogie boards.
Since we are located in Marino Ballena National Park, more commonly known as, the whales tail, this is the ideal place to stay for the under water enthusiast! Marino Ballena National Park is second only to Cano Island with great coral reef and fish diversity. We offer mask and snorkel rentals.
Keep your free time balanced with a jaunt on the slackline. Show off your skills or get someone to show you the ropes. Afterwards, head out for a surf and keep your feet on the board.
Come volley down with friends and family at the Flutterby. Or put together a few teams and have a tournament to determine the Flutter Champions!
Bring your climbing shoes and traverse our bouldering wall. We recently added a 45 degree overhang and painted a mural over the whole thing.
Most visitors will see whales on a boat tour during one of the longest whale watching seasons on the planet. The humpback whales migrate through the area between late July and November and again between December and March, coming alternately from both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Visitors can also see bottlenose and spotted dolphins, sea birds, mangrove forests and sea caves.
Dive down beneath the waves and explore a different world with a PADI certified diving instructor. Explore just off the coast in Marino Ballena National Park, or take a longer trip to some world class diving at Caño Island.
