Like swimming in a starry sky
If you want to experience something really out of this world, you should definitely try the bioluminescent bay kayak tour conducted by the Bahia Rica Fishing & Kayak Lodge.
Imagine kayaking at night in water that turns light blue at the touch of your hand. It’s like swimming in a starry sky, with fish moving around you, creating little comets of light, while your paddle creates galaxies in the water. It’s really a once-in-a-lifetime experience that no one should miss.” Writes Patrick Goodness, in an article in The Luxury Couple about his life and experiences in Costa Rica.
Patrick has lived in Costa Rica for 10 years, and in this article he shares with us some of his favorite places to visit, and activities to do. The bioluminescent kayak tour and Sport fishing with Bahia Rica is among those favorites. Read about how Bahia Rica is his ‘go-to’ team for fishing and snorkeling trips in the Gulf of Nicoya.
We have available space on a multi-day kayak tour now in October.

Hayley from Minnesota got inspired to write this nice article in “The Costa Rican News” after doing the night kayak tour with us here at Bahia Rica.
An Ocean Full of Stars: The Brilliance of Bioluminescence
Explore the Paquera Bio Bay both on a Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) and in a sea kayak.
Have fun and get some exercise on a SUP or even do a little afternoon yoga session on it. Or just paddle your SUP around in the calm gulf water exploring.
Chill in the hammocks under the palm trees enjoying a little tropical snack, while watching the the beautiful sunset in the bay, waiting for it to get dark.
Then we’ll take you on a guided kayak tour exploring the BIO BAY of Costa Rica. Splash your paddle against the water, and you’ll see spinning plankton rain down like an explosion of fireworks in the water.

Bahia Rica Fishing and Kayak Lodge seen from a different angle.
You will always have activities to enjoy when you are staying at Bahia Rica: swimming, sea kayaking, fishing, bird watching, snorkeling or just go for a lovely walk.
But you can also just relax with the sea view and jungle sounds at the beach or in a hammock. Enjoy the pleasure of having your own exotic retreat in a small fishing village. There is an abundance of wild life here, the howler monkeys comes around almost daily and we often spot other animals such as armadillos, squirrels, coaties, iguanas and kinkajous. The diversity of birds and marine life is also rich, so make sure to have your camera ready.
Our beach is away from the road so it is very private. It is a typical “tidal beach” which means that it is nice and big when the tide is down, while the high tide comes all the way up to the palm trees. The water is always calm here as we are on the inside of the gulf.
Our kitchen with dining area is situated only 50 meters back from the beach, so from your breakfast table you can just stroll down to the water and start enjoying your day!
Our very good friends Arlene and Adrian can be of great help to you if you are looking at booking an adventure in Costa Rica, or searching for a nice rental house, or would love help on how to plan your travel in Costa Rica.
