Understand that if you are staying at Las Catalinas (which manages to duck being reviewed by Trip Advisor) that this overpriced shop is going to be your source for your stay. You need a beach chair? 15 dollars a day. You want a boogie board?...More

We're staying in Playa Hermosa the 1st weekend in July next month and are looking for recommendations for kayak rental in the area on relatively calm water in Papagayo Gulf. I've heard of AquaSport in Playa Hermosa & Pura Vida Ride in Playa Danta. Can anyone provide feedback & hours for these or other nearby options?
