Things to do (optional)

Cabo Blanco biological reserve

Take an interesting nature hike through one of the most beautiful scenic sites on the Pacific coast, Cabo Blanco biological reserve. Some of the attractions that make Cabo Blanco such an interesting and beautiful wilderness area are its dense semi-deciduous forest, deep-blue sea with islands that serve as important nesting sites for marine birds and animals, such as white-tailed deer, three species of monkeys, agoutis, coyotes, and wild cats.

Canopy del Pacifico

This canopy tour is based in the quiet seaside village of Mal Pais, on a farm at the entrance of Cabo Blanco nature reserve; this whole area is covered in tropical rainforest. This exciting canopy ride is nearly a kilometer long and has seven platforms set high on the trees. Following the strictest safety norms, you will enjoy trilling views of the Pacific ocean and of the forest canopy, and a short hike by a local hardwood plantation.

Horseback riding

Cattles ranching is primarily based in the Peninsula of Nicoya, one of the areas where the Spanish first settled. Take an unforgettable horseback ride through Hacienda Aro, a 5000 acre, family-owned ranch only four miles up north from Bija Flor Resort, where development has been kept at bay due to limited access through private holdings and natural buffers of estuaries, rivers, and mangroves. The property runs parallel to a pristine stretch of coastline, called Manzanillo Beach.

Mal Pais bird watching tour

If youre a hardcore birder or just getting started in this gratifying pastime, join the naturalist guide for a memorable experience along the roadside gallery forest at Mal Pas in a natural preserve sanctuary known as Star Mountain. Dancing long-tailed manakins and curious turquoise-browed motmots are among the 100 species you might encounter.

Mountain biking

Take a great ride along the coast and visit the beautiful beaches of Mal Pas, El Carmen, Santa Teresa, Hermosa, and Manzanillo. Stop at any of the innumerable tide pools and different spots along the beaches to freshen up, take amazing pictures, and continue your bike trekking. Indigo Yoga Resort has mountain bikes available for the tour.

Sport fishing

Costa Rica is an anglers dream came true. Indigo Yoga Resort offers great deep sea fishing, billfish being the biggest attraction, particularly sailfish and marlin. However, fishermen regularly hook plenty of wahoo, roosterfish, yellow fin tuna, and mahi-mahi among other feisty fighters. It is also common to encounter whales and numerous dolphins during the fishing trips.

Surfing trips and surf lessons

Visitors come all year round to surf either the beach breaks or the more challenging waves at the rocky points around the area. Indigo Yoga Resort offers surfboards for rent and transportation if necessary. Transportation by boat is also available to other surfing spots, some of them totally unspoiled. Surfing lessons are also offered for those interested in a new adrenaline filled experience.

Spa treatments
