- Snorkeling and Scuba Diving
Costa Rica offers snorkelers and scuba divers a view of the wide variety of marine species in their natural habitats. Many underwater adventurers argue whether the inhabitants of the Pacific Ocean are more colorful and interesting than dwellers on the Caribbean coastline, you be the judge and take your cameras to record the evidence. Trips depart the Blue River Resort & Hot Springs at our guest’s convenience, to tour the Junquillal National Park. The tour includes a boat ride into the mangrove to view exotic wildlife and snorkel along the gorgeous Doll Island’s seascape and white sandy beaches. For the less adventurous, a trip on a glass-bottomed boat will transport guests for a drier view of the underwater world from a window above the surface.
The beaches on Costa Rica’s Pacific coastline are also famous for ‘perfect waves’ that surfers thrive on.
For more adventure atop the waves, a catamaran, sunfish-sailer, or a kayak adds a special thrill to life on the seas, still enjoying the sun.
- Water Skiing, Jet-Skiing and Wind-Surfing
Adventurous folks will be drawn to the speed of water skiing, jet-skis, and wind-surfers that zip along the surface adding excitement to the seascape. It is difficult to top those thrills but you can go soaring above it all; trained persons will strap you into a harness with a parachute, hitch you to a speedboat, and take you soaring high above the shoreline for one of the most spectacular views of the country.
Deep-sea fishing is an extremely popular pastime; daily charter trips can be booked in advance. Sport-fishing charter Captains provided everything needed at the dockside for a day’s deep-sea sport fishing. Upon returning to port, the charter can arrange for your catch to be mounted and shipped home, or cooked on the grill and served in the sunset. This may be a great opportunity to set a new International Game Fish Association (IGFA) record catch.
