Tours and Activities in Santa Teresa and Malpais

Situated within walking distance of a renowned surf break, Latitude 10 is a great place to catch waves…or catch up on your ZZZs. We recommend a little of both. Unplug. Read. Chill. And when you crave an outing, let us book an adventure. Our staff will make all the arrangements. A few local tours we recommend below.

Surf Lesson or Surf Guide

You’ve wanted to try for years. Now is your chance. Santa Teresa is the perfect place to get in touch with your inner surfer: warm water, gentle waves, skilled professional teachers. Learn with a local instructor in a small group or book a private 2-hour lesson. For all levels.

Montezuma Waterfall Canopy Tour

todo_montezuma_waterfall_canopy_01

Costa Rica’s famous for its zipline tours and famous for its natural beauty, like waterfalls. Here you have the best of both worlds in one outing. Zip through the canopy on nine cables (the longest cable is 300 mts.) and 11 platforms. Take in the views 1200 meters over the forest, next to the Montezuma River waterfalls where you make a stop to take a dip. Bring a camera—you won’t want to miss the views of the Nicoya Peninsula. And if you’re lucky, you might even catch a photo-friendly monkey or two. Tour leaves at 9:00 a.m., 1:00 or 3:00 p.m.

* a walk to the waterfalls is also available should you decide not to do the canopy.

Mal País Canopy Tour

The Canopy Tour takes place on a 26-hectare farm covered in rich tropical forest and diverse wildlife at the entrance of the Cabo Blanco Absolute Nature Reserve. Journey through the treetops with the Pacific Ocean below you. The exciting canopy ride is nearly a kilometer long and has 8 platforms set high in the gigantic trees. Steel cables connect the platforms, which are between 5 and 25 meters high. Fly along a 300-meter long shot over a canyon between the second and the third platform. Professional nature guides will accompany you to talk biodiversity when you’re not whizzing through the treetops on this unforgettable journey. Tour leaves at 9:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. or 3:00 p.m.

Horseback Riding

Cruise along the coast for a breathtaking boat ride to the famous Tortuga Island, home to the best snorkeling on Costa Rica’s Central Pacific coast. Upon arriving to this tropical paradise, the boat anchors within view of the white sand beach for a snorkeling session in crystal clear waters surrounding a volcanic rock reef. After snorkeling, relax on Tortuga Island’s picturesque beach while lunch is being prepared. The afternoon is left for exploring the island on your own—swim, stroll, stretch out in the sand.

This location provides easy access to the park’s extensive system of hiking trails, the crystal clear waters of the Pacific, several beautiful beaches, a mangrove estuary, excellent snorkeling, the Tortuga Islands and incredible wildlife, including sea turtles, monkeys and Scarlet Macaws.
