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

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

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

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

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.
