Kalon Surf’s Top 5 hotels for a short stay pre or post Kalon Surf Week:

- CANOPY (ZIPLINING) TOUR (BARU OR QUEPOS)
Guest Favorite – you will not only enjoy a beautiful and famous canopy tour, but the local guides will also tell you everything you want to know about the exotic plants, trees, and any animals you see!We have 2 options: Baru (2h): “The canopy tour is a beautiful 2h tour through the jungle around Dominical, the guides of the canopy are not helping you to go through the zipline, but they will also tell you everything you want to know about the animals, trees, flowers and insects you will see during this tour”
Or Quepos/Manuel antonio – it is about 6h, includes lunch, and you will be able to see everything that Costa Rica has to offer, including some very pretty waterfalls. Guests have been raving about this one.
- AMAZING WHALE WATCHING
When it is the ‘whale’ season, you can book a beautiful boat trip to see whales from up close! Usually the tour take about 6 to 7 hours, and it is best to book upon arrival to understand the current situation.
- DOMINICAL VILLAGE
Get to know the quaint town of Dominical: take a taxi ride down to town, get a beer at the bar at the beach or simply walk around for a bit (the town only has 500 people living there, so it is very small!). Don’t forget to visit Roberto’s mother who sells self-made Costa Rican jewelry!
- ATV Tours (Uvita)
From the ATV guys directly: “We assemble at 8:45 am at our location in Uvita for some quick ATV training, then at 9:00 am. we are riding through the jungle and into the mountains. Pressing that 4×4 button on our auto trans ATV will make the climb that much easier as we cross streams, ruts, rocks and mud on our way to visit small villages, coffee farms, and a huge 300′ waterfall. Your bi-lingual guide is sure to spot the local wildlife including monkeys, sloths, toucans, parrots, and yes, sometimes snakes! We’ll stop for a swim at one of the waterfalls on our way back, and should be returning to the shop at around 1:30 pm, just in time for lunch.”
