SUP-Stand Up Paddle Boarding: A great way to work out while enjoying the ocean. Both boards and private or group classes can be arranged.

 

Surfing:  One of the main attractions in Costa Rica, the surrounding swells of Ostional, Marbella and, of course, Nosara get surfing lovers up early morning or late afternoon to be in the here and now, on top of a wave.

 

Tennis: PachaMama has it’s own impressive clay tennis court right in the middle of the forest.  A full time tennis instructor is available for lessons for both adults and children and the court may be booked in the Welcome Office.

 

Hiking: Whether you choose to stay on or go off the beaten path….. there are so many beautiful trails to enjoy nature and wildlife in and around PachaMama including a hike down to the river where you can treat yourself to a refreshing dip when the waters are flowing.

 

Turtle Tours: PachaMama is located about 5 km from Playa Ostional, one of the most important nesting sites of the Olive Ridley turtle (Lepidochelys olivacea) in Latin America: Thousands of females arriving in huge “arribadas” during several nights, digging a hole in the black sand and laying their eggs ( 100 – 110 per animal) into this nest. The biggest arribadas normally occur from July to December.  The turtles in Ostional are supervised by the national wildlife protection authorities and you will be provided with a tour guide there.

 

Dolphin Tours: These can be arranged by the local tour agent in San Juanillo

 

Bird Watching/Wildlife Tours:  Weather and season permitting, bird watching and creatures of the night tours are organized and lead by Tyohar for small groups of max 6 people.  This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the local wildlife and habitats.
