We live in Manuel Antonio, and for our family's special occasions, we celebrate with the Agua Azules team. For our ten year old son's birthday, last month, we went on the 'banana boat' and he and my husband went parasailing, and had an amazing time! Agua Azules is conveniently located on the beach (at the bottom of the 'vendor street) they speak English, and are extremely conscientious (a must for those who are 'worriers' ;) Our son couldn't stop talking about what a great time he had, and can't wait to do it again! Thanks for the memories!

Best trip ever!!!! Miguel and Melanie( the owners) were wonderful. They were the most informative and supporting guides. I am terrified of heights, but always wanted to try para sailing. Melanie and Miguel talked me through every step of the way and demonstrated the safety of the equipment. When I finally found the courage to trust and let go, it was the most amazing experience ever. After sailing higher than I thought I could ever imagine(for me) the crew was there to bring me to the beach via jet ski (another high light for me).
I recommend Aguas Azules to anyone,even someone who is petrified of heights and is 69 years old. This is one trip you do not want to miss! Miguel and Melanie are truly the Costa Rican Para sailing specialists!!

My only regret is that we didn't discover this treasure sooner. This was one of those last minute tours that we took and will, without a doubt, rank as the best experience of our vacation. I loved it so much I went twice. Because of my enthusiasm, my 69 year old sister who is petrified of heights, considered trying it. After she spoke with the owners, Miguel and Melanie,she felt safe enough to try it. My daughter, saw how much I loved it and decided to she would go as well.
The parasailing itself was breathtaking and as Miguel referred to it a "forced zen", but what truly impressed me was their ability to tailor the adventure to our individual needs. Knowing my sister's fear they went above and beyond to help her feel more at ease. They were ALWAYS truthful. They wouldn't take us up until they felt the wind velocity was safe, they even considered giving my sister their Walkie- Talkie if she wanted it. They took their time in answering any of her questions and never onced pressured or coerced her to try this experience. She Loved It !!!
What Marie (my sister) didn't know was that the whole time she was in the air, Miguel was on his walkie, talking to boat driver to make sure she was ok. The "landing crew" was amazing. You land into the water and I swear these guys were there to assist immediately. Obviously they know their stuff.
My sister's fear of heights was enough to stop anyone from trying this, but the fact that one member of our party got badly injured (broke her foot/ankle in four places and had to fly back to the US) while zip lining, added to her anxiety. These guys are the real deal, they love what they do, it is not just a job to them. We were lucky to have stumbled onto them. If you get a chance ... look them up and go for it. You love it.

My extended family just returned from a week in Costa Rica--our first trip to Manuel Antonio. How lucky to find Aguas Azules and Melanie and Miguel. Like Rhonda E., they were recommended by our hotel and I couldn't be happier. My older son wanted to try parasailing, and convinced my younger to join him. Both teenagers were anxious to appear confident, but were a tad fearful underneath. Melanie was so great with them: knowledgeable, efficient, friendly and calm. She put them at ease without letting on at all that they might have some butterflies in their stomachs. Before I knew it, they were rising gracefully into the air. What a wonderful experience!! We plan to return someday for the fishing and snorkeling tours (which A.A. also provide). Professional and friendly.
