On those days when you want to take a break - 'cause the wind might not!

When it's time to rest your arms and legs from all the sailing, there are plenty of other things to fill your days. Want to travel a little more slowly? Take a horseback tour with a local guide up into the rain forest to see monkeys, toucans and on rare occasions even people!! Rent a car and go to the hot springs at the foot of Arenal volcano, really relaxing after a day of windsurfing. Other possibilities include trips to the Pacific coast, rafting on the Corobici River or visits to the local "fiestas" in the nearby towns and villages that are a feature of the dry season and not to be missed.

Or just take a massage with Helena.

>> River Float

A boat ride on a nature float, the ecologically diverse Corobici river is a must for all nature lovers. Teeming with plant and animal life, the river allows a closer observation of the fauna and flora than is usually possible. Talk to us about making a booking.

>> Hanging Bridges

A perfect trip for all nature lovers. You can take a guided tour or just walk on your own, at your own pace. When going on the self-guided tour, pay special attention to the different layers of the rainforest, from the treetops, the understory and the forest floor; this way you will be able to appreciate many of the species housed by this spectacular biological corridor.

For more details check out the Hanging bridges website.

>> Hot Springs Tabacon

Just 90 minutes of driving, at the base of Arenal Volcano, are the Tabacon Hot Springs. A beautiful resort area has been built which allows you to soak in the naturally hot waters while drinking a cold one and, if the weather permits, take in a close-up view of the volcano. Then just a few steps away the resort restaurant is waiting to offer you a delicious meal. After a hard day of sailing this is just what those sore muscles need!

For more details check the Tabacon website.

>> Mountain Biking

The Arenal area offers a myriad of MTB opportunities, all with 100% soft, loamy soil! Whether riding the roads leading off into the hills or, for the more adventurous, taking off on the trails. The hilly nature of Lake Arenal makes for slightly harder riding, but the spectacular views are more than enough reward.

>> Horseback Riding

For those of you who would like to see the area from the saddle but don`t want to pedal, this is it. Too many trails to mention, the next view more beautiful than the last one. Your hotel will be able to book you a horse and a local guide.
