What a fun night! We came in from Puntarenas on the 5:00 ferry. We drove into Bahia Rica. If you're driving in I HIGHLY suggest a 4 wheel drive. It started raining as we were driving from the ferry but we quickly went down to the kayaks with another couple and got started. How beautiful the kayak trip was. Play... More

We just had the most magical experience! We kayaked at night in the most tranquil and still bay while watching the water glow every time we touched it. It's called bioluminescence--which means that the organisms in the water produce light through a chemical reaction. It's incredible- like nothing you've ever done before. No kayak experience needed, it's very calm and... More

It was a good experience for us as well to take your group out. So far your group was the biggest and most mixed group we have taken out on a night kayak tour. Thank you so much for writing the review and for working with us to make it a safe and enjoyable tour for all! More

I can't remember exactly how much this excursion cost, but I think it was £10-15. It was worth every penny. My friend made a suggestion involving Paquera and bioluminescent algae. I'm a fan of all things marine related, so I said why not. I had no clue as to where Paquera was, what we were going to do there, who... More

My son is a casual fisher & I had not been fishing in 30 years. Thomas & Victoria meet our catamaran, picked us up in route to Tortuga and gave us a great day of new experiences on the water. I did not know what to expect, but as soon as Thomas threw in a bonito-bated-line & handed it to... More

We were only in Costa Rica for one day and I wanted to see something other than the cruise port at Punta Arenas. I noticed that there was a ferry to Paquera and investigated options around that area. I contacted Thomas and Vicki from Bahia Rica and they were very helpful. They arranged transport to the ferry port from the... More

I spent a week with Tomas and Vidgis last winter. Believe me, I had my doubts about what I would encounter. . Btw,I am no tyro,I have been to Costa 5 times previously. We arrived after dark, I was not impressed at all. Then I woke up the next morning to the howler monkeys in the tree tops.....but the thing... More

Thanks for writing a review! And sure thing, the holwer monkeys are our neighbours here - and since the houses are surrounded by the jungle you really get them close. I have a troop of them in the tree in front of me as I'm writing this ;) Thanks for your visit and we look forward to to having you... More

We had a great time kayaking with Vicky. She took us to a lovely, secluded beach on a local island. Served us great ceviche. Only down side was the number of bugs. Bring bug spray the next time. We had to dive into the warm bay water to escape them. Our kayak adventure was followed by a lovely lunch at... More

We went on this tour with our group of 16 adults. The staff here are fantastic. We arrive a little late but they took care of us and did not shorten our tour at all. Our tour was actually an hour and a half longer then it was supposed to be. We started out with some safety info and then... More

A really life experience to do interesting sea kayaking in a tropical environment with professional guiding owners, who can tell you all about wildlife in Costa Rica. Good food and excellent service.

We stayed at the Bahia Rica for two nights and enjoyed two different kayaking tours with hosts Vigdis and Thomas. First was bioluminescent kayaking at night. Absolutely magical! Thousands of dinoflagellates lit up the water with every kayak stroke, all underneath a clear sky full of bright stars. Thomas took us to several places where we could see fish zooming... More
