Stand Up Paddle Camp in Costa Rica

Imagine yourself on a Stand Up Paddle Camp, exploring the Costa Ballena waters every single day of your vacation. Our Week Long SUP Camp takes you to SUP the most beautiful locations around this area of Costa Rica.
Why Kayaking is a great sport for all ages
Mangroves are incredible trees the create amazing ecosystems. They are vital to the health of the ocean, the protection of the land and salvation of our atmosphere.
