Explore offshore reefs and the marine life of Punta Guiones on a stand up paddle board. A local favorite is a paddle through the waters of Rio Montana through mangrove tunnels to a hidden trail that leads to Playa Nosara.

• Boca Nosara Wildlife and Birding Kayak Tour

The Rio Nosara and Rio Montana are Norsara’s largest rivers and provide extraordinary paddling. Kayak alongside Great Blue Herons, Anhingas, Roseate Spoonbills and maybe even spot a crocodile. Weave through mangrove tunnels and cap off your tour with an ice-cold watermelon or sunset cerveza at the Boca.

• Snorkeling in San Juanillo

San Juanillo is a sleepy town just a short 25 minutes north of Playa Guiones.   The beach at San Juanillo is great for snorkeling, hiking on the reef at low tide or just relaxing and watching the beautiful sunset.

Miss Canopy bills itself as the longest, most exhilarating canopy tour in the world. Traversing majestic mountain ridges and valleys and soaring high above ravines with breathtaking views of rivers, waterfalls and the Pacific, the tour includes 21 runs.
