Exuberant Day Adventure


Golfo Dulce, Puerto Jiménez, Península de Osa

This trip can be described as a longer beginner paddle for those looking for an adventure filled day. This is a combination of eco-adventure activities and a time for appreciation of the environment.

Aventuras Tropicales Golfo Dulce can help you discover a different side of the Osa Peninsula that few ever see; pristine tropical waters of Golfo Dulce are waiting for you, the stunning sea-life, reefs and colorful panorama are here just waiting to be discovered.

This kayak excursion goes along lonely coastlines where 4 different kinds of sea turtle are often seen, together with playful dolphins, hundreds of fish and sea birds and eventually the majestic humpback whales (ask for season) in their natural environment. Also includes a 1- 2 hours reef exploration and a 2 hours mangrove exploration. The order of the tour activities depends on the tide.

Tour starts at 8:00am at ATGD operation base where snorkeling gear is fitted.

Then if it is high tide the mangrove exploration comes first, this will be a visit to the Preciosa Platanares Wild Life Refuge mangrove section.

After the visit to the mangrove forest, a tropical fruit snack will be offered including a demonstration on how to open coconuts local style.

The paddle along the coast takes about 2 hours until reaching Sandalo reef. Where there is a 2 hour time span to explore underwater world. This timing is variable according to physical conditions of the participants.

Before or after the snorkeling a beach picnic lunch will be served, with the Golfo Dulce scenery, seasonal fresh fruits, ice tea, each one can prepare its own sandwich with fresh vegetables, cheese, jam, bread, beans and sauces.

If lunch comes before snorkeling, a resting time is needed before going to the water.

There is another 30 minutes paddle to reach the road. The last part of the tour would be a 4WD ride back to Puerto Jimenez.

If there is low tide in the morning the program is totally flip over, starting with a 4WD to Sandalo, then snorkeling, snack, paddling along the shore, lunch and mangrove exploration.

Any how the tour would start and finish in ATGD operations base.
