Walk to Playa Blanca

At low tide, you can walk along the southern end of Coco Beach and take a few steps on the rocks to reach Playa Blanca. It’s a beautiful white sand beach where you can enjoy great snorkeling. Always be aware of the tide and come back before it starts to rise.

Playa Penca

This small and isolated beach is probably one of the most idyllic in the area. It’s located between Coco and Hermosa. We recommend getting there in a 4×4 due to the difficult road. It is possible to get there with a mountain bike if you have a good level of fitness: it’s a steep road! Ask the front desk for directions.


Playas del Coco has great snorkeling sites. You can either rent the equipment at the hotel and go by yourself in the rocky parts of the beach or go in with a professional guide. Some tours combine snorkeling with SUP or sailing. Ask at the front desk to know the good spots.

Scuba diving

Papagayo’s gulf has got plenty of surprises for those who dare to dive in it’s waters. You never dove before? No problem! You can take an introduction class or a full course to obtain your diving certification. There are options for all levels of divers. In season, more advanced divers will want to go to Catalina Islands or Bats Islands to see manta rays and bull sharks.


Get aboard a catamaran or a sailboat and cruise along the coast to admire incomparable views of Coco. After an exciting trip to a secluded bay, your crew will take you snorkeling to discover the richness of Costa Rica’s marine life. If you prefer, you can also decide to take a stroll on the beach. Snacks and drinks are included. Be ready to see dolphins, turtles or whales, depending on the season.


The waters of Costa Rica’s North Pacific always have been an excellent destination for sport fishing. Among others, you can find marlin, sailfish and abundant Dorados (Mahi Mahi). We offer offshore fishing, inshore fishing and bottom fishing.

Animal Sanctuary

At only a few kilometers from Coco, you can visit an animal sanctuary, enjoy up close viewing and see a wide variety of species in one location, including sloths, monkeys, toucans, crocodiles, frogs, snakes, butterfly, and more. You can combine the visit of the sanctuary with an exciting zip-line, a horseback ride, an ATV ride or a jet-ski tour.

Water sports

You can enjoy a fun day at the beach by renting stand up paddle boards (SUP), a kayak or a jet ski. The memory of watching Playas del Coco from the bay is priceless. There are also guided tour options that combine some of those activities with snorkeling and the discovery of other beaches.

Half-day Zip-Line Adventure

This adventure consists of eleven suspended cables, including one where you will fly “superman style”, and three hanging bridges. After the zip-line you can see rescued monkeys or choose to add more fun to your day by combining the tour with horseback riding or ATV.

Surf Tour to Witch’s Rock and Ollie’s Point

Any surf lover would be amazed by the paradise of Witch’s Rock and Ollie’s Point. These waves, powerful and with shallow bottom, are only for experienced surfers. Land access is very difficult and therefore we offer you boat shuttles and tours.

You may also stop at shops and restaurants on the way if you’d like. You can combine this tour with zip-lining or horseback riding.

Horseback Riding

It is said in Costa Rica that the best all-terrain vehicle for navigating the country is a horse. Costa Ricans love horses and their riding traditions, and Guanacaste is the heart and soul of the country’s equestrian life. Hop on and enjoy the views of the for est and the coast on a 1:30 hour horseback ride

Hiking at Rincón de la Vieja Volcano

Beautiful hiking trails cross this National Park. Steam and sulfur pour out of yellow and rust-colored ground at natural fumaroles. Clay and coffee-colored pools boil with hot volcanic water. Smooth gray volcanic mud bubbles explode in large pits. It’s an experience like no other volcano in Costa Rica. We offer you an economic shuttle to the entrance of the park.
