DEEP SEA FISHING

sample15Costa Rica is an angler's dreams come true. The country's Pacific ports and beach resorts provide access to some the best deep-sea fishing in the world, and have long been known for their world-class Sailfish, Marlin, Yellow fin Tuna and Dorado Sport Fishing, while the canals and rivers offer snook and tarpon fishing. Billfish are the country's biggest attractions, with abundant sailfish and marlin off the Pacific coast, but the fishermen also hook plenty of other feisty fighters, such as Wahoo and roosterfish. Deep sea fishing is the country's forte, there is also great fresh water fishing in Lake Arenal and the larger rivers in the Northern Zone, where anglers can fight with the small but ornery guapote, a hump-backed fish also known as the rainbow bass. The prime fishing season is December – May, which is also the dry season, and brings calm seas, but you can catch fish year- round because the Gulf of Nicoya is a magnet for the many different species of baitfish. The waters abound with whales, dolphins, turtles, manta rays, and many other species of marine life throughout the year.


GOLF

It has a 9 and 18 hole courses, a practice tee, driving range and club house. The area offers several international golf courses and The Four Seasons Hotel also has the most spectacular and stunning course.


SURFING

World-class surfing at Witches Rock and Ollie’s point can be reached by escorted surfing tours by boat from Coco Beach.


WHITE WATER RAFTING

The mountainous area and heavy rainfall during the ‘Green Season’ make Costa Rica one of the best white water river selections in the world. These trips provide great excitement, and there are a good selection of excursions that cater not only to those with experience but for families and beginners too, with wonderful scenery and bird watching. Many visitors experience the thrill of rafting for the first time here in Costa Rica. Life vests and helmets are provided ensuring safe but exciting excursions.


CANOPY TOURS / TREE TOP TOURS

Costa Rica - literally meaning ‘rich coast’ in Spanish boasts a phenomenal abundance of wildlife in all its forms. The bird species alone number over 890!! It is one of the most bio-diverse places on earth, with rainforests, mangrove swamps, cloud forests and a plethora of plant and animal life that add up to make this tiny Latin American country the place to be.



HORSEBACK RIDING

sample29Costa Rica has quite a cowboy culture!! This tradition is primarily based in the province of Guanacaste, one of the first parts of the country to be settled by the Spanish, where vast cattle ranches cover rolling hills and forest-draped volcanoes tower above it all. Mountain resorts and nature lodges located all over the country offer horseback excursions, which can head through pastures, topical forests, or along the beaches – often stopping at waterfalls and swimming holes. These tours are also a great opportunity for bird watching and getting close to timid wildlife – the guides keeping a sharp eye out for interesting species!



NATIONAL PARKS . VOLCANO

The Guanacaste province in northwest Costa Rica is a land of volcanic peaks, jungle valleys, scenic waterfalls and natural hot springs. Habitat to a rich diversity of plants and animals, with national parks the area offers intriguing nature exploration as well as historic sites and charming villages. The warm, clear waters of the Pacific embrace its beaches, some of the finest in Costa Rica. They are sheltered breeding grounds for the magnificent sea turtle.



EVENING ENTERTAINMENT

Costa Rica has two seasons – the dry season from late November to mid April and the rainy season from May to mid November. This is a general guide as there are also many microclimates depending on which side of the country you plan to visit. VILLA DURAZNO is situated in Playa Panama in the province of Guanacaste on the Pacific side and boasts one of Costa Rica’s most desirable climates being the sunniest region.
