Apa yang akan anda lakukan

We begin by meeting up at the beach or at my home, meeting each other (and maybe a few dogs and cats), grabbing all our essential gear, and heading out to the beach. Then, I go over the basics of kayaking and where we’ll be heading! We then start our journey by kayaking along the shore keeping an eye out for wildlife and making our way to a nearby secluded beach to park the kayaks. Here, we will get our snorkeling gear ready, hydrate, and prepare to explore the underwater world. Once in the water, I will search and show you some interesting sea creatures up close. After snorkeling, we will relax, hydrate and enjoy a fresh pineapple. Finally, we will start making our way back to where we started.

Feel free to request a different time. Early morning usually always provide the best conditions.
Other things to note:
Meet me on the beach if you are in Hermosa. If you come by car, you can park at my house if you need to.

Hola! My name is John, born and raised in Costa Rica. I grew up in Playa Hermosa where I've, (as a kid and still to this day) spent my days exploring the nearby beaches, islands, reefs and rainforests. Even after living my whole life here, I still find myself continuously surprised by all the new wildlife I encounter.

The beach we will meet up at is called Playa Hermosa, from there we will explore the mountainous shoreline on our kayaks, then stopping at a little secluded white sand beach that provides beautiful areas to snorkel at.

John was very flexible and punctual with communication. We had to reschedule to the following day as we visited in the beginning of rainy season and the conditions were prohibitive for our original time / date. We were staying an hour drive away and he contacted us early enough the first day to give us the heads up that we had to cancel/reschedule before we would start driving. For the kayaking experience John provides all the snorkeling and kayaking gear you’ll need but life jackets are optional - I STRONGLY recommend taking the life jacket if you’re not at minimum 99% confident in your level of swimming fitness/free snorkeling ability, especially so if your at a lower level or ability than any companions or partners you book this experience with.. other than that, I won’t spoil it but john has a lot of great stories from his experiences living on this beautiful beach and there are plenty of interesting conversations to be had when you get to spend this time with him. Overall a nice way to start any day on the Guanacaste Coast, and an interesting person to spend some time with.

We had a magical time kayaking and snorkeling with John. My daughters and myself really loved the experience of kayaking to a remote beach then snorkeling from there. John showed us many amazing sea creatures. It really was a special experience. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Guanacaste.

This was the highlight of our trip! This is the first time visiting the Pacific side of Costa Rica and we booked this experience because we love snorkeling but had never adding kayaking into the mix. The short paddle over to the reef area at a nearby secluded beach was easy, just getting used to paddling with someone else was the only learning curve for me and my husband. The water is super clear and warm this time of year. John provided masks and fins but we had our own masks to use. The snorkeling is easy from the beach and you can take your time and explore. I like that John is very easy going, doesn't rush you but will guide you during the snorkel to find the marine life you might miss. He showed us an octopus (big plus as we love them!) and a puffer fish that gave us a nice show of what it looks like fully puffed out. He also introduced us to a couple different starfish species. We took some great video of everything. What really makes this experience special is that John cares about his home and the marine life. We would definitely do it again!

We had the best time kayaking and snorkeling with John! It’s 100% worth the early wake up call. We debated asking him to start later but are so happy we didn’t! The calm morning waters made for enjoyable kayaking and very likely because we were the only ones snorkeling in the water- we saw 3 turtles in the quiet morning hour! Plus sting rays and tons of schools of fish. We both said we saw more wildlife than some of the snorkeling we’ve done in Hawaii! The water is super warm, the sun is already up by 6:30am so the conditions are wonderful. And now we have the whole day ahead of us. The fresh pineapple was great, the quiet beach was peaceful and the conversation was awesome. Our only regret is we did this on our last day in Playa Hermosa and wish we could have done it again!

We had an awesome time kayaking and snorkeling with John. The two other girls we met on this tour had actually also done it the day before and decided to book it again for the following day, and I understand why. We had perfectly sunny skies and clear water, giving us excellent snorkeling conditions. We saw tons of fish and John even took care to show us an octopus and a puffer fish. We had a lot of time to snorkel and hang out on the secluded cove, not rushed at all, and snacked on the sweetest pineapple I’ve ever had. John recommended a restaurant really close by afterward and we ended up trying it which indeed was awesome. This is a real pura vida experience.

This experience was absolutely amazing. I would give it 10 stars if I could. John was an incredible guide and was SO knowledgeable about the activities and environment. It’s an early activity, but the fish are also early risers so you see such a nice variety of species, many shapes sizes, and colors. Truly worth it & I highly recommend!
