SUP rentals at Bahia Rica

Stand up paddle boards (SUP) offer a fun, relaxing way to play on the water. With a minimum of gear, you can paddle the smooth waters of the Nicoya Gulf.

Paddle boarding delivers a full-body workout and thus has become a popular cross-training activity. And since you stand at your full height, you can enjoy unique views of everything from sea creatures to what’s on the horizon.

Now you can rent SUP Boards here at Bahia Rica Fishing & Kayak Lodge, and go explore these waters.

SUPs have been spotted around the globe, anywhere where there is easy access to safe waters, as well as the surfing line ups of the world – and now also at Bahia Rica Fishing & Kayak Lodge. The rise in popularity of stand up paddle-boarding can also be attributed to how easy it is to learn. Within a very short time, you can become comfortable in the water and on your board.
You can take the SUP’s out for a fun day with your friends or even do your yoga exercises on the SUP. Come enjoy this awesome sport with us, rent a board and get out on the beautiful Gulf of Nicoya.

resized_IMG_1948We have a very good friend and contributor to the local Priamry School at Punta Cuchillo, Mike Pruitt.
We took the kids and the teacher on an outing to Paquera, where Mike bought them new shoes to the school uniform. Mike also gave each kid a backpack.
Of course the kids also really enjoyed the ice cream break when we took them to Passion Fruit in Paquera

The little primary school here in our community, Punta Cuchillo, is missing a lot of basics for the kids. Our friend Mike Pruitt from USA have brought down quite some material for the kids already. With his help we have now also bought new school uniforms and books for the kids. Mike also donated a used computer and projector to the school.

Today we also brought the school a soccer ball donated by Sam Wilson from Canada (a guest at Bahia Rica). And also a contribution to the school lunch for the rest of the week from CAPATUR (the Chamber of Tourism in Paquera).

Thank you Mike, Sam and CAPATUR for helping us help the school
