Excursions
Explore Mal Pais, Costa Rica

Old Costa Rican Farm Tour

Across the globe, there are only five geographic areas, known as Blue Zones, where people live longer and happier lives. Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula is one of them. Researchers have shown that natural physical activity, like gardening and working with your hands, as well as a diet rich in locally sourced food including lots of fruits and veggies, are contributors to the Blue Zone lifestyle.

The Old Costa Rica Farm Tour introduces you to life as a farmer, connected to the land, the animals, and the outdoors, and demonstrates the value of this lifestyle in maintaining your health and happiness.

This working farm is located about 40 minutes by car from Florblanca, and some of the activities will include milking cows, making traditional fresh cheese, and extracting the sweet juices of sugar cane to produce raw sugar.

Mal Pais And Montezuma Waterfall Excursion With ATV

For the adventurous, a flight above the jungle canopy is a short ride away. The canopy tour is set on a sixty-acre farm that is completely untouched. You will fly above the border of Cabo Blanco with spectacular views of the Pacific.

Next, ride on our all terrain vehicles with one of our guides across beautiful farmland and along the coast to Montezuma, a tranquil beach town located on the southeast corner of the peninsula. In Montezuma, you will visit a large waterfall, and if you do not have a fear of heights, you may jump off the side of the rock into the pool at the bottom of the waterfall.

After hiking back down, you can lunch at a local beachfront restaurant and then stroll around town. The hike to the waterfall is intermediate. We recommend wearing shoes other than flip-flops that can get wet.  

Cabo Blanco Hike With ATV

Jump on our ATV’s and ride the dirt road to the tip of the Nicoya Peninsula where you arrive to your destination, Cabo Blanco National Preserve. Cabo Blanco was the first protected area in Costa Rica. Cabo Blanco has a number of different trails for all levels of hikers. Set in a moist tropical forest, this park is full of more than one hundred and fifty types of trees. The jungle trails are teeming with lush plants and flowers, and trails such as Sendero Seuco lead to the secret beach of your daydreams.

After your hike, you will visit the villages of Cabuya and Montezuma. On your journey, you will see a Giant Ficus Tree (great photo opportunity), and hopefully see a variety of birds too. This tour is a great way to experience our natural and cultural surroundings.  

Tortuga Island And Curu Exploration

This local excursion is the ultimate if you are looking for a full day tour to explore the Nicoya Peninsula and all its wonder. We will pick you up right in front of the hotel and take you to Curu Wildlife Refuge.

Once you arrive, you will be greeted by our guide and begin a mellow hike through the refuge. On this walk, you will see all kind of birds, monkeys, and other mammals. Next, the guide will take you by boat to the spectacular Tortuga Island for snorkeling, swimming, and relaxing on the white sand beach. A traditional Costa Rican lunch is served at the island.
