1. Re: excursions

If you are not certified you can take a two day "discover scuba" course which which includes pool and classroom instruction and then an ocean dive. For certification you will need 3 ½ days minimum to complete the OW Certification Course.

For white water rafting , class III & IV there are trips. One to the Tenorio River which is approx. 2 hrs from the resort 7am - 5:30 pm or travel to Arenal 3 1/2 - 4 hr drive eachway 5am - 12pm (includes Tabacon Hot Springs and dinner)
