As of March 16, 2020, the Costa Rican government has closed all points of entry to foreigners to Costa Rica. We are keeping our staffing levels at a minimum to assist clients in this mass evacuation and process credit notes to clients who have future reservations. Should you have an emergency, please contact (506)8904-6809.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected Costa Rica, but we have an advanced and modern health care system and universal health care for our citizens with a well-organized and centralized government, so as a country, we have been taking considerable precautions for travelers and citizens.
We wish all travelers and fellow world citizens much health — Be SAFE and have serious FUN (at home!).

Get Ready to "Walk on Water!" in Arenal Costa Rica
Try the newest and easiest paddle sport... ever! Arenal Lake Costa Rica
Stand Up Paddle.....Arenal Lake´s best new activity! SUP, as it's called for short, has its roots in ancient Polynesia and looks exactly as it sounds: you stand up on a large, wide, super buoyant surfboard and paddle yourself forward with a long paddle. The great thing is you don't have to wait for the waves -- you can SUP on lakes, rivers, pools and any other large body of water.
For that reason, it's attracted all types of paddle enthusiasts -- young and old alike!
"Our clients love this new sport because it can be done anywhere," Desafío Adventure Company owner Suresh Krishnan explained.
According to Krishnan, his clients take the skills they learn in Costa Rica and apply them to the sport back home after their vacations. "It's a great workout for your core, builds balance and is less daunting and more consistent than regular surfing," said Krishnan.
Be a part of this exciting new trend and learn how to SUP and take a SUP tour with Desafío Adventure Company -- from Lake Arenal to the gorgeous Pacific Coast of Playa Samara.
Get your exclusive, introductory SUP lessons from the only SUP outfitter in the Northern Zone.
If you're heading to Playa Samara and Playa Carrillo, we provide free transport when you purchase a SUP lesson on the beach.
