IMMERSE IN NATURE

CHOROTEGAS WALK

Discover the ancient spirit of Chorotegas, the indigenous tribe that inhabit Peninsula Papagayo and explore the natural surroundings of the resort. Our expert guide will illuminate the wonders of endemic flora and fauna encountered along the way, get your body active and get ready to connect deeply with nature.

LOOKING FOR MOKEYS

Peninsula Papagayo is home to more than 15 monkey troops of three different species: howler, white-face and spider monkeys. On this tour, join our knowledgeable naturalist guide on a quest to spot as many primates as possible: you may be lucky enough to see some babies amongst the troops! It’s a great experience for kids of all ages who enjoy nature and wildlife without a lot of walking.

MAGICAL MANGROVES

Few experiences are more magical than touring the mangroves of Palmares – one of the jewels of the peninsula. Venture into this natural sanctuary, and explore a unique ecosystem of eerie “walking trees” able to survive (and thrive) in salty fresh water, creating a rich refuge for wildlife. Take a relaxing paddle through the mangroves in an outrigger canoe or, for a more strenuous workout hop on one of our water bikes.

OFF-ROADING

Join us for a heart-pounding off-road adventure around the Palmares estuary in a UTV – and be prepared to get dirty! Stop for a quick nature walk before heading over to the northern peninsula for astounding ocean views, exclusive to adventures with Peninsula Explorers. From there visit Playa Zapotillal to hang out on a secluded beach where there is rarely another soul.

Traversing through forest, estuaries and mangrove, Peninsula Papagayo’s many trails within Palmares Preserve are a wonderland for mountain biking. The new fleet of electric-assist off-road bikes all boast full suspension, and will allow you to escape the confines of pavement, connect with nature and journey out for the ride of your life!
