Costa Rica - SUP Adventure
Join us for a 6 day / 5 night adventure in Costa Rica!
We have chosen the amazing and remote Osa Peninsula as our base in Costa Rica. Believe us, we don't make our decisions lightly - The Osa is magical. Truly one of the most spectacular tropical environments in the world, this unique location is the best place to experience what Costa Rica has to offer. With vast rainforests that shelter Costa Rica's largest remaining population of jaguars and tapirs, the Osa is the gateway to the Golfo Dulce, a pristine marine paradise teeming with sea life. We will explore it all. Venture under the forest canopy and SUP the dazzling waters of the gulf.
National Geographic has called the National Park of Corcovado and Golfo Dulce "the most biologically intense place on Earth in terms of biodiversity". In a short six days you'll spot many ocean and land animals: whales, dolphins, crocodiles, 4 different kinds of monkeys, macaws, toucans, and many more! In terms of paddling, the diversity this area offers is just as stunning: mangroves, deep gulfs, coastal rock gardens, and surf. Every day we wake up next to the water with a tropical spread and rich Costa Rican coffee. Our paddling location is located between Gulfo Dulce and the mangroves. There are miles of coast to explore on paddle boards and our private boat. Side trips to waterfall and jungle hikes are all part of the trip!

Mike's Paddle & The Adventure Fantasy
Hello! My name is Victoria Anweiler the owner of The Adventure Fantasy, a travel company focused on cultivating unique adventure travel vacations. For over 7 years Mike and I have worked together running stand up paddleboard trips around the world with our partner business SUP Caravan. Over the pandemic I took over SUP Caravan and have been slowly designing trips with multiple types of adventures not just SUP, hence the business name change. Still, one of Mike and my absolute favorite trips is this trip to Costa Rica. The incredible paddling, vibrant wildlife, and remote and beautiful destination, make this trip truly special. I will be hosting both weeks of this trip and would love for you to join me for a week of connecting with other super fun paddlers and having amazing adventures in the jungle. We have 5 spots left for the week of February 4-10 and 3 spots left for the week of February 11-17. Check out the details below to learn more about the trip.

Daily Paddles - From the Beach Lodge, there are a number of paddles that we can do. Sunset paddles are incredibly beautiful. All paddling equipment is included SUP, paddle, PFD, leash, fin.
Mangrove Tour – During mid to high tide, we can go explore the mangroves. There’s is a wide estuary between one of the islands and the mainland. The estuary comes from one of the winding rivers of the Osa and meets the gulf. The water is partially freshwater and partially salt water and can be very clear during midday. Jungle wildlife viewing is amazing in the mangroves during dawn and dust.
Gulf Tour – Golfo Dulce is a long south facing gulf. It is one of the deepest golfs in North and Central America. We will explore the Gulf Coast towards the pacific for miles. There are numerous beaches on the way and tons of wildlife to see.
Boat Tour – We have access to a tugboat that can take us to various parts of the gulf. We will have an all day boat trip searching for the 100+ dolphin pods, whales and many other sea creatures. The crystal clear waters of the gulf give a perfect opportunity for diving in and snorkeling to see schools of fish and other underwater creatures.
Jungle Hike – Just 45 minutes drive from the Osa Beach House is the national park of Corcovado. We will do an all day excursion into the park that is just bursting with wildlife! So many different kinds of monkeys, sloths, birds and a lush jungle creating an experience of true immersion to this area. The beach walk is amazing too with almost no one on the beach.
Waterfall Hike & Beach Tour – There is a beautiful creek we hike up to explore and swim in an awesome waterfall. In the surrounding areas there are some beautiful beaches of the Osa Peninsula that are not to be missed. After we will go to a secluded bar and restaurant to relax and enjoy dinner and drinks.
The Beach Lodge is the best-kept secret in the Osa. The lodge has multiple cabanas that fit different size parties. Located right on the water, we can launch our boards within steps of the lodge. There is an open-air yoga space the overlooks the waterfront and a beautiful communal area to share meals and relax. We offer shared cabanas with 2 double beds up in a loft and a kitchen/common area on the ground floor. We also have private cabanas with 1 king bed. All cabanas have AC and private bathrooms. voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur.
