Uvita surprisingly offers a large number of options when it comes to tours or activities. Below are our favorites. Any of these can be arranged by the front desk of the hotel you are staying at. There is no need to rent anything in advance prior to your arrival.

Ocean Tours:

Whale Watching - Seasonal but you can watch humpback whales and dolphins.

Snorkeling and Diving - Multiple destinations await you for unspoiled coral reef and an abundance of sea life. We recommend Cano Island if you are willing to go out for a full day.

Land Tours:

Horseback Riding - You can either do this activity on the beach or you can take a horse to see a wild waterfall. Both are amazing options.

Hiking - Many guided hikes are offered in order to view spectacular scenery and waterfalls.

Ziplining - Costa Rica were the pioneers of this activity and they still do it better than anyone else. The best ziplines in the country are located in Monteverde and near Uvita.

White Water Rafting - Choose from category 3 or 4 depending on your skill level.

Waterfall Rapelling - Not for the faint of heart but a lot of fun for the adventureous spirit.


If you wish to go someone without a tour we recommend a day trip to nearby Manuel Antonio which is the most popular national park in all of Costa Rica!
