From Playa Conchal, you can visit any of five National Parks: Santa Rosa, Rincon de la Vieja, Miravalles, Tenorio and Palo Verde. www.costarica-nationalparks.com There are many activities available at or near these parks, including hiking, waterfalls, zip lines, mud baths, hot springs, horseback, etc.

There are many many guides and tours available in that area - or you could just go on your own.

Some tour companies include www.malekutours.com www.papagayovargastours.com www.jacamartours.com among others. Usually higher priced but very professional is Swiss Travel, also known as Cielo Azul.

If you like nature, the Palo Verde river boat tour is ideal. About an hour drive to the docks. Then up and down the river looking at so many birds, monkeys, iguanas, crocs, bats...

Just walk outside the resort on the beach and you will see the local beach guides. I have worked with Erik and Aron there many times. They are good guys.

The sunset sail is one of the most popular tours and great value. Usually they include kayaking, guided snorkel tour, lunch and open bar.

If you were looking to follow up on Manta Ray Sailing, I just received their response that they will not be available until Nov due to remodelling.
