Nearby attractions and activities:
Turubari Park: High above the Rain forest Turubari Park, just 15 minutes from our company, is an eco-adventure experience with rain forest tours, an aerial tram, butterfly garden where you can see the stunning blue morph, horseback riding and three different options for "zip line", an exhilarating experience of flying over the canopy of trees, safely. Turubari is known to have the best canopy tours in all of Costa Rica, and is just 15 minutes' drive from our company.
Herradura Beach: The quiet beach-town of Herradura is home to many native Costa Ricans, or ticos, as they call themselves. The small, sandy cove is more private than neighboring Playa Jacó, although a few new beach front resorts near town have recently attracted more visitors to the area. Playa Herradura is big enough that you can rent jet skis and get a bite to eat at a local restaurant, but still small enough to enjoy the peaceful waves and watch the vibrant sunset over the ocean. Serenity, the colorful local culture, and a beautiful view make Playa Herradura the perfect beach day trip to get your feet wet on the pacific shores of Costa Rica.
Jaco, Costa Rica: A few minutes from Herradura is Playa Jacó, a bustling surf-town that combines just the right amount of tourists and local culture to create a fun, laid back atmosphere. In just the past five or ten years, Jacó has transformed from a sleepy beach town into a popular tourist and surfer destination, rumored to have one of the best surf breaks in Costa Rica. We can help you make arrangements for surfing lessons in Jaco or nearby world famous Hermosa Beach, and arrange day trip transportation for you. Go here for more information about surfing in Costa Rica.
Jacó is the closest beach to the capital city of San Jose, which means the town can become very busy in the dry season and on the weekends, so be sure to book hotels in advance. The combination of tourists and locals provides for a wide variety of dining and lodging choices, from inexpensive rooms and locally-owned restaurants to upscale resorts and fine dining-even sushi! The town is also famous for its vibrant nightlife, and there’s always something going on. Whether its live music, casino gambling or bar-hopping that suits your fancy, you’re sure to find an exciting time in this beach town.
Tortuga Island Snorkel & Relax: If you love to be on the water, spend a day on a snorkeling tour to Tortuga Island. Our company provides the transportation to Puntarenas, where Calypso Cruises takes you on a comfortable cruise boat to Punta Coral Private Reserve and Tortuga Island. Tortuga Island is a tropical white-sand paradise, where you can explore the crystal blue reefs and get a closer look at the sea-life with fins and mask. Other activities on the island include beach volleyball and hiking trails within a private rain forest, offering you a chance to spy on birds, monkeys, insects, and other native Costa-Rican creatures.
Calypso Tours includes a delicious lunch cooked on an open grill and chilled white wine. A multi-lingual Guide will answer questions while you relax and enjoy the ride! $99. per person. Our company can arrange your tour. Horseback Riding through the mountains in the authentic Costa Rica. Two hour rides with fabulous mountain and ocean views; ride through a traditional "finca", see staple agricultural crops, Brahma cows and the green of the rain forest or ride to thermal hot springs or a lovely waterfall close to our company.
Carara National Park Jungle Tour: Famous for scarlet macaws, an abundance of bird life, 3 kinds of monkeys, iguanas, colorful frogs and crocodiles, this tour, 1 hour's drive from our company, will spark your adventurer's spirit. If you wish, add the Tarcoles River boat tour to your day at Carara Park, with Vic's Tours.
