• Around ISLA CEDROS:
Leaving from Punta Coral, we paddle over to Playa Langosta on Isla Cedros. Here we will stop for a brief rest and enjoy some tasty Calypso Ceviche (typical Costa Rican dish)
We continue to a small island in the bay called Isla Garrobo (Lizard island). This is a great photo opportunity as the island is, true to its name, inhabited by a large amount of lizards and iguanas.
The trip continues around Isla Cedros where we very often encounter Howler Monkeys. On the far end of Isla Cedros we kayak through a small passage between Cedros and Isla Jesusita.
The sandy bottom here attracts a variety of rays; such as sting rays, spotted eagle rays and cow nose rays easily viewed form your kayak. From there we can relax and let the current bring us back along the south side of Isla Cedros to Punta Coral where a lovely sea food lunch will be served.
• Around ISLA NANSITAL:
Just a short paddle from the main beach at Punta Coral, we take our kayaks around the eastern point of the Peninsula of Nicoya to go ashore on a secret little spot of land, Isla San Pedro.
At high tide the island is a mere rock sticking up in the water but at low tide, a small but beautiful beach emerges. The rocky area around the beach is great for snorkeling. There are numerous tide pools and on the island where you can find fish, crabs and even moray eels.
After enjoying Calypso's famous ceviche appetizer, we continue to Isla Nancital, or Monkey Island as it is often called. Here we have a good chance of encountering the endangered Spider Monkeys. After we pull our kayaks up onto the beach, the Spider Monkeys will come down from the hill tops to our kayaks and you will get a chance to interact with them.
After a brief visit, we will continue around the island through Boca de Tiburón, the passage between the two islands. On the south side of Isla Nansital, we often spot Ridley or Leatherback Turtles and manta rays. On the way back to Punta Coral, we will again kayak past Isla San Pedro. A delicious seafood lunch will be served upon arrival back to Punta Coral.
