The coastline is spectacular and the beaches are pristine. Our sea kayaks, outrigger canoes, stand up paddle boards and sailboat are the best way to enjoy these coastal waters. We don't pollute or disrupt the balance of nature; we just paddle through our small slice of it, not leaving a trace. If you seek "Fun on the Water" Kayak Jaco has the tour for you:• Independent folks love our kayaks• Groups and clubs are fascinated by our unique outrigger canoes• Those who are serious about kicking back adore our sailboat• People looking for exercise can try SUP. Snorkeling is included on these tours (when conditions permit) and it enables you to get even closer to the best that Costa Rica has to offer - it's nature. For 17 years, Kayak Jaco has been running safe, sustainable, enjoyable tour sand we strive everyday to ensure that your trip will be a wonderful Costa Rica memory to have for years to come. « less

We were scheduled for a morning 1/2 day kayak and snorkeling trip with Kayak Jaco. Unfortunately due to the winds and waves we were unable to do the snorkeling portion. The excellent staff however took us to a great beach where we were able to swim, play frisbee and even have a soccer game on the beach. The guides were... More

My wife and I were visiting during the rainy season and decided to give it a try. When I made the appointment I asked about the possibility of snorkling. They made no guarantees but they said they would try. Their efforts exceeded our expectations. We had a relatively clear day for paddling but the wind and the rain from the... More

We had a great time! The guides were outstanding and did a great job supervising the children on their snorkeling adventure.

These people were great. I set up my kayak fishing appointment last minute (literally within the hour of when they regularly offer the tour) and they were very cooperative. Leo was my guide. I first attempted to fly fish, but due to my inexperience combined with the wind, I went ahead and switched over to the spin reel. I caught... More

We met up with our kayaking guide, Leo, at 1:30pm. He helped roll our kayaks down to Playa Agujas, where we left for our nearly 4 hour journey. He taught us about the plants and land as we paddled by and he never made us feel rushed. We stopped at a private, secluded beach to rest and then stopped at... More

Went with Neal and his able crew on a sunset night tour on an outrigger canoe. Beautiful perfect sunset, good foor and a lot of fun was had by all. Neal is a great guide and knows a lot about the surrounding birds and all that we saw. And the crowning end to a perfect trip was paddling back in... More

We got a great English-speaking guide who was extremely helpful and took us to a small secluded beach by kayak, where the snorkeling was possible. Great value for money.

Spent a half day tour with my family ( three couples) on the catamaran. Neal and Wilbur were excited to accommodate us, get the sails up. My husband and dad brought their fishing rods along and the crew was happy to get the rods in the water and ended up catching a few fish. It was an amazing value for... More

My husband and I signed up for this trip hoping for a bit of a workout as we are experienced kayakers and don't mind waves. The trip was less than expected as a test of our strength, but so much more than we expected as a glimpse into the Costa Rican Pacific coast's aquatic life. We did the 3.5-4 hour... More

Easily a 10/10 experience. My boyfriend and I got to experience bioluminescent kayaking through Kayak Jaco's new 'Night Kayak' tour. When friends and family ask how my trip to Costa Rica was, this is the story I tell them because it was simply the highlight of our entire trip. A very nice driver came to pick us up from the...
