Hands-on-Science: Snorkel and Monitor Rays on a beautiful beach!

This is a one-of-a-kind activity where you will have the chance to become a scientist for the day. Learning how to fish and spot the 24 different types of rays found on our water, and helping to measure, weigh and tag them, you will end up with unique knowledge, experience, and photographs that you will not find anywhere else!

You will also be able to visit some of the most beautiful and not very touristic beaches in Costa Rica, enjoy the nature found under their waters and out of them, not to mention have a typical Costa Rican dish, practice your Spanish and have a cultural exchange.
