Birdwatching
Costa Rica has more than 850 species of birds in a land mass no larger than the state of West Virginia. This makes it one of the most attractive places in the world to birdwatch.

Snorkeling
Snorkeling in Costa Rica starts over living coral reefs and leads deeper for the stunning sight of Manta Rays swimming by like a formation of underwater hang-gliders.

Surfing
Surfers plain and simply love Costa Rica.  All beaches in Costa Rica are open to the public and easily accessible. Virtually every major surf spot is located within a four hour drive from the Central Valley, except for Pavones which requires an eight hour drive.

Costa Rica’s rich marine life means excellent sport fishing.  Along the Pacific Coast, anglers find some of the best blue water and inshore fishing in the world.  Roosterfish, Mahi Mahi, Yellow-fin Tuna, Grouper and Wahoo are among the most common game fish.

Horseback Riding
Horseback riding in Costa Rica can take you along beaches, on the edge of a country road or along forest trails.  On horseback you can ride just about anywhere in Costa Rica, and climbing onto the back of a spirited equine can be a wonderful way to spice up your vacation.
