Seek out turtles from your sea kayak in the Caribbean, glide your kayak silently past crocodiles in the river as sloths sleep in the trees above and hike through the Costa Rica rainforest surrounding Punta Uva. Sound like fun? Our Punta Uva River Kayaking, Sea Kayaking & Nature Hike is ecotourism in Costa Rica at its best!
This action-packed eco-excursion in Costa Rica is a wonderful adventure for all ages! Your morning starts with a drive out to the southern tip of the bay where our eco-adventure begins. First we will go over all the safety instructions and the basics of kayaking with our skilled guides, then launch our kayaks into Costa Ricas' Caribbean Sea amongst the sea turtles who call Punta Uva home!
Next, we will kayak our way across the bay to the mouth of the Punta Uva River where we are sure to meet a family of sloths who call the trees bordering the river their home. As we make our way kayaking up the river, be on the lookout for monkeys, more turtles, and even a small crocodile that sometimes makes an appearance. As a special treat, enjoy a delicious fruit snack on the beach and take a dip in the crystal clear Caribbean waters before we begin our hiking portion of the tour.
Hear that cry? Howler monkeys can be heard in the jungle from up to 6 miles away! As we hike the ridge surrounding Punta Uva, keep your eyes open for the sea grape (uva in Spanish) tree that gives this small town its name. The Punta Uva hike culminates in a breath-taking view of the entire bay, so make sure to bring your camera to capture scenery of why so many appreciate the Pura Vida of Costa Rica. This half day kayaking & hiking tour in Costa Rica will leave you feeling that you have experienced the very best of Puerto Viejo and the Caribbean region of Costa Rica.
