It is best to take this experience on your first days here since you will learn a lot about the area. I will pick you up at your Airbnb, in a comfortable car, and we will go our first destination: The Cliff. This is the place where magnificent pictures could be taken. The walk is not difficult or long, there are just two easy steps up and the top is breathtaking with stunning views of ocean. All fitness levels are welcome. After this perfect Instagram photo opportunity we will go to the Iguana Project, breeding and releasing green iguana sanctuary, located in the indigenous protected area and founded by Costa Rica Ministry of Natural Resources, where you can see free iguanas close-by. Then we will go to the Bri Bri Waterfall, the magical place in the woods, where we will relax, swim in the waterfall pool, have beers and talk about Puerto Viejo. You will learn which beaches are good for surfing, which for swimming and which for snorkelling, where are the places where you can spot animals, where is the best Caribbean restaurant and where to go if you are craving sushi; where to dance the night away or listen to live music whether it is jazz or reggae. And at the end we will go to a great beach club where you can have lunch or just enjoy the sun and the ocean. Pura Vida!
Born and raised in Serbia, I moved to Canada 17 years ago, and two years ago I moved to Costa Rica and left my life as a mechanical engineer to became a travel/tour consultant. I was always passionate about travel and meeting new people and I'm living my dream now :-) I enjoy taking travellers on different tours and sharing my knowledge about this area and it's unique culture while contributing to the local tourism industry. I really do want travellers to get to know this town and Costa Rica and to love it as much as I do. Check out also my other Airbnb experience "Explore Puerto on a bike and see animals". This is the perfect way to see many animals we have in the area https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/935351
