Ocean SUP Tour on the Nicoya Peninsula

Try some stand-up paddle boarding

Thanks to one of the most consistent breaks in the world, paradisiacal Nosara on the Nicoya Peninsula is a popular surfing destination. Luckily, its reputation hasn't stopped its coastline of pristine sandy beaches from remaining delightfully unspoiled. One of the best ways to enjoy this scenic stretch of shoreline is on a standup paddleboard (SUP) tour.

This adventurous excursion starts with getting acquainted with your board and paddling. Then you'll head just offshore around the Nosara area. Accompanied by a bilingual guide, you'll glide over the water and around the headland near the surf town of Garza. Along the way, unforgettable coastal vistas will unfold before you, from the wide, sandy Rosada Beach through the secluded Coco Beach. Finally, enjoy gazing down into the reefs, lying just offshore from Guiones Point and Garza Bay, before looping back to your starting point.
