Hiking in wildlife or national parks

Besides the wonderful flora of Curu Wildlife Park and Cabo Blanco National Park, you have got the chance to get eye to eye with howler monkeys, parrots, deer and many other fascinating animals!

Morning or afternoon runs at the beach

The sand’s structure at Paquera Beach is perfect for a beach run.

SUP in the calm water of the Gulf

The calm waters of the Gulf are ideal to go stand up paddle boarding around the various islands.

Island-hopping all day

There are 18 islands surrounding the region. One of them is home to a family of spider monkeys, another one is a former prison island and others offer dreamy white-sandy beaches like Tortuga Island.

Whale watching

From August to November is whale season! Every year we have whales and their calves passing by Tortuga Island.

Snorkeling and diving at Tortuga Island

Tortuga Island is indisputably Costa Rica's most exquisite island. The main attraction is a magnificent white-sandy beach lined with tall coconut palms. The waters at Tortuga are home to the best snorkeling sites on Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast.

Horseback Riding

In close distances there is a horse stable where they offer tours and classes.

Beach Life

Las Terrazas is located on the southern heart of the Nicoya Peninsula and surrounded by many great beaches close-by. Right at your doorstep you find Playa Paquera. Other than many beaches, Playa Paquera is down to the present day a truly natural place where you can enjoy a sunny day under palm trees. Only a few steps away from Las Terrazas this beach offers you various possibilities: Catch a boat to Tortuga Island, get your exercise in by running some kilometers or simply enjoy the warm waters of the Gulf of Nicoya. Besides Playa Paquera, there are many other beaches in close distance. To name a few there is Playa Quesera, Playa Muertos and Playa Isla Tortuga (the beach of the island that is situated just off-shore of our properties). All three are known for their white-sandy beaches.
