Experience stand up paddling (SUP)

Stand up paddleboarding is incredibly enjoyable and provides an excellent all body workout. The sport is easy to learn. Explore stand up paddling along the beautiful reefs and beaches of Santa Teresa and Mal Pais, Costa Rica. The Nicoya Peninsula’s lush coastline and clear waters are ideal for stand up paddling. There is no better way to explore the outer reefs while enjoying breathtaking views of the tropical coastline. With infinite coves, every location Perfect Sunset School take you to will be equally breathtaking.

Go zip-lining in Canopy del Pacifico

It is a fun and adrenaline-filled way to get a taste of the rain forest and feel like Tarzan. The folks at Canopy del Pacifico will strap you in a harness and send you soaring over the treetops through a maze of zipline cables. Knowledgeable and amusing guides point out wildlife along the way, though moving so quickly means that you may miss much of the wildlife.

Local tour to Tortuga Island

Cruising along the coast for a breathtaking 50-minute boat ride is how you’ll begin your voyage to Tortuga Island. Jagged volcanic rock spills into the sea to create a dramatic contrast between the brown sand, red rocks and crushed shells that make up the variety of different beaches along the way. Spotting a group of playful dolphins, marveling at the enormous jumping manta rays, or, for the luckiest of visitors, catching a glimpse of surfacing humpback whales are just a few examples of experience with marine life that you are likely to have as you make your way to the island.

Take yoga lessons

Perfect Sunset School takes yoga classes every day and several times a day. Different types of yoga (Vinyasa, Sridaiva, Restorative, and detox) are taught in beautiful spots (in the jungle or on the beach) for all levels. The yoga class offered will challenge you physically but mostly mentally because there are an opportunity to increase self-awareness, knowledge, and joy.

Take a diving tour at Tortuga Island

Paradise Tortuga Island is located on the Central Pacific coast of Costa Rica in the Nicoya Peninsula, which is surrounded by an abundance of dive sites, most of which are accessible within a thirty minutes boat ride.

Isla Tortuga and its surrenders are famous around the world because is the only area in Costa Rica and Central America with three sank boats, where Perfect Sunset School provides one of the best diving adventures in Costa Rica.

Average visibility ranges from 30 feet to 50 feet with possibilities of up to 80 feet. You dive and see volcanic rock formations and rock pinnacles. There is an abundance of life among the rocks which can be seen on both day and night dives. The dive itself offers you the chance to explore the micro life, along with very large puffer fish, nudibranchs, gigantic slumbering parrot fish, lobster, tube worms, and sea horses.

Take an ATV tour

Located in the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula, Montezuma and the surrounding area have many hidden treasures to discover. This is the adventurous way to explore the pristine beaches and lush jungles as you take a self-guided tour on Perfect Sunset School ATV’s. Drive along country roads through tropical forests where you can spot monkeys, birds, and other wildlife. Take some time to stop at one of the secluded beaches for a dip in the ocean or explore some of the refreshing rivers cascading through the jungles.

Take the the Montezuma Waterfall Canopy

This tour is one of the zone’s premier attractions. The canopy consists of a series of nine cables and eleven platforms suspended high above the forest floor. The guests glide along the cables using a pully and a breaking device. The local English speaking guides are experienced and are trained in first aid to ensure that this tour is safe and easy for all visitors.
