Type: Water sports, Adventure
Owner description: For 17 years Kayak Jaco has been introducing travelers to the joy of getting out on the water of the Central Pacific coast of Costa Rica. 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.

We had a group of 7 and it was a lot of fun. Very safe, easy instructions to follow. Leo and the leader were very friendly. Beautiful beach to snorkel and swim once we got there. Even saw some Scarlet macaws!

Awesome morning of kayaking. I think the guides name was Leo, and we had a tandem kayak. We paddled, hiked on the beach, had snorkel and swim time, paddled to another beach and went to an amazing waterfall. There we had a snack of fresh pineapple and watermellon. Clean changing rooms and restrooms. They sell very nice long sleeve shirts... More

Jacob was our tour guide today and it was just my mom and I. We did the afternoon tour, so it was a little more rough than if you went in the morning.If you have never kayaked before, make arrangements to go early in the morning as we are experienced kayakers but more so in the Gulf of Mexico and...

I'm a kayaker at home, so I couldn't pass up a chance to kayak in Jaco. I was the only customer, so it was just the guide and I in separate kayaks. The weather and water conditions were perfect; the guide was great; and I had a very enjoyable morning.

My fiancé and I just visited Herradura September 28th and had an amazing time with Kayak Jaco. We were picked up at Los Suenos Marriott right on time and as luck had it we were the only ones going on the trip. It took about ten minutes to drive to their office. Overall it was a great kayak trip and... More

My friend and I wanted nature, snorkeling and a nice beach. ..this was it! Wear sunscreen and a hat, if not a t shirt. My friend is a much more advanced kayaker than I, so i wasn't sure i could keep up. The guide gave me some good advice and I really enjoyed the trip. Anyone can do it. Or... More

10 adults and 8 12-15 year olds. Wonderful weather, gorgeous scenery, and get outrigging. After we arrived at deserted beach, there was snorkeling and lots of wonderful fresh fruit. We spent close to an hour just standing in the warm water and chilling out. The guides were very professional and knowledgeable. The kids were impressed that one of the guides... More

5 of us went on the outrigger ocean canoe. We rowed for about 30 min and landed on a beach where we snorkled for a while. The guides were friendly, professional and knowledgeable. They also helped by taking a few photos for us. The area where we rowed and then landed was absolutely gorgeous and looked like something from a... More

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
