Whales & dolfins seeing

Whales seeing in Costa Rica is, without a doubt, one of the best activities Central America has to offer. Thanks to its tropical climate and the temperature of its water, Costa Rica is one of the best places to see cetaceans. The tour includes snorkeling and visiting some underwater caves. It is one of the most popular activities since the chances to see marine life are very high.

Wild Macaws Sanctury

The Wild Macaws Sanctuary is an organization dedicated to the survival of the Costa Rican native macaws. Previously extinct in this area of Guanacaste, the red macaw is back! Punta Islita hosts the Macaws Breeding Center and Refuge organization, where they rescue hurt birds from both species that cannot be freed; they keep them with the goal of reproducing. Then, their offspring are freed into the wild. They have freed more than 50 red macaws, creating the now famous wild scarlet macaw.

Turtle nesting

A guided tour enhances your chances to see turtles nesting and babies eclose all around the area. Your guide not only knows the best spot to see turtles during their nesting season but can also provide you with lots of information regarding their circle of life that you wouldn’t have gotten without them.
