Below we have our Top 5 of outdoor activities in Costa Rica Dominical area.
Kalon Surf’s Top 5 activities during Kalon Surf Week:
1. NAUYAKA WATERFALLS (BY HORSE OR HIKE)
One of the most beautiful 2-layered waterfalls of Costa Rica is a must see. Go by horseback ride or a hike, that leads you through the jungle filled with exotic animals to this amazing waterfall. Bring a swimshorts and swimsuits as you should and can definitely dip in the water!
2. Guest Favorite: Donia Sonia & Don Luis Costa Rican Farm Tour!
Donia Sonia & Don Luis are our neighbours and they have a beautiful Costa Rican farm! They provide Kalon Surf with the cheese they make, with the meat and the eggs. During the tour, you will hike to their property with one of Kalon team members as a guide. You will make cheese, have a traditional Costa Rican lunch, milk cows, feed the pigs and see their beautiful property, which has some amazingly big and old primary rainforest trees. Guests have loved this new tour for its authenticity and connection with the culture of Costa Rica.
3. MANUEL ANTONIO RAPELLING ADVENTURE TOUR
Experience Costa Rica – the guest favorite! Located close to one of the most beautiful National park of Manuel Antonio, this (6h) tour really has it all with Skilled Suspension Bridges, Waterfall Rappelling, their famous “Monkey Drop”, Inclined Rappel, Tree Climbing Ladders, Canopy Tour Zip Lines and even Tree-Top Rappelling. A full on adventure, while being submersed into the jungle and flora & fauna.
4. CANOPY (ZIPLINING) TOUR BARU
Another Guest Favorite – you will not only enjoy a beautiful and famous canopy tour, but the local guides will also tell you everything you want to know about the exotic plants, trees, and any animals you see! We have 2 options: Baru (2h): “The canopy tour is a beautiful 2h tour through the jungle around Dominical, the guides of the canopy are not helping you to go through the zip line, but they will also tell you everything you want to know about the animals, trees, flowers, and insects you will see during this tour.”
5. ATV Tours (Uvita)
From the ATV guys directly: “We assemble at 8:45 am at our location in Uvita for some quick ATV training, then at 9:00 am. we are riding through the jungle and into the mountains. Pressing that 4×4 button on our auto trans ATV will make the climb that much easier as we cross streams, ruts, rocks and mud on our way to visit small villages, coffee farms, and a huge 300′ waterfall. Your bi-lingual guide is sure to spot the local wildlife including monkeys, sloths, toucans, parrots, and yes, sometimes snakes! We’ll stop for a swim at one of the waterfalls on our way back, and should be returning to the shop at around 1:30 pm, just in time for lunch.”
Depending on the season: AMAZING WHALE WATCHING
When it is the ‘whale’ season, you can book a beautiful boat trip to see whales from up close! Usually, the tour takes about 6 to 7 hours, and it is best to book upon arrival to understand the current situation.
