Costa Rica is home to countless species of animals and plants. A Whopping 2% of earth's biodiversity resides here, so it's the place to be if you love nature. Also people who look for some physical activity can go all out in Playa Coyote.
We offer surf rental including all materials and safety instruction. From short board to longboard and softtops, all classes are available. Playa Coyote and Costa de Oro are very good surfspots for all skill levels!
The beach next to Playa Coyote is called "Playa Caletas" and is a protected nesting site for the Olive ridley turtle and the Green leatherback turtle. Nightly walks here almost guarantee seeing turtles nesting or hatching.
The northwestern province of Guanacaste is known for its Sabanero (cowboy) culture. Let yourself be guided by a traditional cowboy and ride through the jungle, over the mountains and along the beaches.
Take your snorkel gear and spot an abundance of multi-coloured fishes or just relax in the wonderful tidal pools of Playa Coyote and Playa San Miguel.
In the surroundings of the hostel you can make nice hikes through the jungle, in the mountains, to the beach and further along the coast. Between Playa Coyote and Playa Caletas lies a Peninsula which you can climb for beautiful views over the beaches.
It's a 15 minute walk to the beautiful beach of Playa Coyote. Walk further along the coast and discover Playa Caletas, Costa de Oro and Playa San Miguel. They all have their own specific beauty.
Karen Mogenson Park
A bit further away, at about 1 hour driving, there's a hidden gem. Undiscovered by the masses, the Karen Mogenson Park offers beautiful hikes, encountering almost nobody while walking in an overwhelming canopy forest. The trail here leads to a beautiful waterfall. The pools on the way to the waterfall give excellent chance to take a dip or two. This park is one of our favourites and for 1000 colones ($2,00) it's also the cheapest protected park in Costa Rica.
At 20 minutes driving our friend Mike is running his open air Butterfly farm. As an avid entomologist living in Costa Rica for many years, he has a very extensive knowledge about the local environment and its animals. He organises 2 hour tours through his open air butterfly farm at $25 a person. We highly recommend doing it, you will see that there's life everywhere around you, well hidden but for everyone to see if you let your eyes be guided by Mike.
In Puerto Coyote there's a very friendly fisherman called 'Chico', who organises fishing trips out onto sea. For $50 an hour he provides boat, fishing gear and knowledge about good fishing spots for up to 3 persons, regardless if you go alone or with 3. Here you can catch Red Snapper, Marlin, Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna and even the prized Roosterfish is to be found here. 3 hour minimum.
