Snorkeling in Papagayo and Guanacaste

Best snorkeling sites and snorkel tours

Our private boat tours are ideal for families. With pick-up included directly on the beach in front of the hotel, this 4, 6 or 8 hour tour is ideal for a family or a group of friends who want to do a little of everything, or want a custom trip, like a boat rental with captain.

Snorkeling near Papagayo Guanacaste
Amazing natural beauty of Guanacaste

A calm sea with crystal clear waters is the ideal environment for snorkeling. Guanacaste has a lot of that. You can choose from several sites, those near the beach and with the option to draw your own routes or take a boat and get offshore to enjoy life under the sea. There are rocky reefs and islets pretty much all along the coast between Papagayo and Samara, so if the conditions are good (currents, rain and river mouths and sediments as well as winds), any place in Guanacaste can be equally good.

In some cases, it is not necessary to even leave the coast for a good snorkeling session, you can simply explore the rocky reefs normally at each end of the beach. However, in other cases, or in case you would like to participate in a real snorkeling tour to amazing sites, taking a tour with a guide and boat is the best option. One good options is the private half day Snorkeling Tour. The tour includes a private speedboat, snorkeling gear, even some fishing rods and drinks and a captain and guide at your service for 4 – 5 hours.

Rocky islets and reefs for great snorkeling in Guanacaste
Emerald green waters during a sunny day

How is snorkeling in Guanacaste ?

While the visibility might not be as impressive as along the Caribbean, this is compensated by the fact that the species of fish is quite impressive. And not only fish will be seen, but also other creatures, including rays, eels, sea turtles, and interesting mollusks, corals and a dramatic rocky seafloor, product of the countries dramatic formation, created by powerful tectonic movement and volcanic activity.  Caves, caverns and meandering sandy underwater ways are quite abundant.

Murcielago Island, more a dive destination, is among the three best places in Costa Rica

Snorkeling in Papagayo

Near Papagayo for instance, the famous spots such as Monkey´s Head, Catalina Islands, Isla Huevos are among the top snorkeling sites. Many other spots are available, and the guide will usually decide a day in advance which place will be best, including important factors such as visibility and currents.

Further south, there are also several great snorkeling spots, and there is no main difference between Papagayo, Flamingo, Conchal, Tamarindo, JW Marriott and even as far south as Nosara and Samara, since this part of the Guanacaste coast is similar, meaning it is more about smaller beaches interrupted by rocky reefs, a msut condition for snorkeling. Further South of Samara, until Santa Teresa and Mal Pais, the conditions tend to be less good, since longer and very sandy beaches are more abundant, which does not permit good visibility.
