In addition we organise horse riding trips through the jungle and along the beach, as well as various boating trips (fishing, dolphin/whale watching). Of course we also plan sports tours, like going kayaking or canoeing or canopy tours.

A small selection of our various destinations:

Beach tours

The hotel is the perfect starting point for trips to the various beaches of the area. You could, for example, just go to the wild beach Playa Buenavista, which is located within a 10-minute walk from the hotel. There you can also stop by the sea turtle preservation station and, with some luck, see how the little turtles hatch or how they are led into the ocean. Or just go to the beautiful Playa Barrigona, with a white sand beach and turquoise water. You also can go on a trip to the romantic fishing village San Juanillo, or just relax at any other beach of the area, like Barco Quebrado, Garza, Guiones, Samara, Carillo, Islita and Bejuco.
