Fun in and under the waves in Costa Rica

Board rental is included in the package, so you can practice all you want and further improve your skills. And when you are done playing in the waves, your 2-tank dives will give you a change to explore the exciting sea life, and you don’t even have to be a certified diver. An exciting land tour completes your package. So pick the duration of your package, select your accommodation and you are ready to head into the ocean!
