Trip Overview

This half-day tour starts when we pick you up from your accommodation in Manuel Antonio or Quepos. Then we will head straight to one of five secluded beaches that you will not visit on any other tour. The coastline of Manuel Antonio is a little slice of paradise known for its turquoise waters, rustic beaches and variety of flora and fauna. Whether a first timer or an avid paddle boarder, there is no better spot to enjoy paddle boarding. Our certified guides will get you standing up right away and will offer tips to get you paddling like a pro. After a couple hours of paddle boarding, we’ll reward ourselves with snacks and fresh fruit as we sunbathe on the soft sand before heading back.
