The mountains trails are ideal for those who enjoy bike riding. The nearby beaches of Playa Grande and Los Cedros have recently been discovered by surfers & buggy boarders as they present some of the best stretches of surfing coastline in the country.

Golfers can take advantage of the proximity to some of the most exclusive golf courses in the country. The greens and fairways of the nearby Los Delfines golf course have been certified by the ANAGOLF (the National Association of Golf in Costa Rica) as some of the best in the country.

For those who are more into motorsports ATVs are available for rental throughout all of the Peninsula of Nicoya.
