Trip Overview

Our pedal kayak expedition starts at the scenic coastline of the local bay of Maracas from where we will set off to explore the breathtakingly beautiful coastline of Manuel Antonio, witness wild and marine life roam in their natural habitat and exotic sea birds flying over us while we pedal.

We will pass by 4 to 5 secluded beaches you would not be able to witness otherwise during your stay in Manuel Antonio. We’ll break up our trip by hopping on shore at one of the beaches to enjoy some delicious, tropical fruits before heading back.
