Standup paddle boarding, aka SUP, is one of the coolest new sports on the hot beaches of Guanacaste! The tour starts off with a pickup at your local area hotel and then you will be brought to the Flamingo Marina to start your adventure. Your bilingual guide will teach you the basics if you are not experienced and then you will be off.
The concept of standup paddle boarding is to stand on a specialized, stable and oversized surf board and paddle through relatively calm waters. Paddle boarders have been known to travel several miles out, but todays tour will not be quite as rigorous.
After leaving the Flamingo Marina, your guide will lead you to a hidden beach on the point. You will have a little time to swim or explore. After a little while you will make your way back to the marina for the take out.
After the tour you will be brought back to your local area hotel. The standup paddle boarding tour is available for all levels of experience and of course for first timers as well. This is a great way to take in the scenic Flamingo coastline and get a little exercise while you are at it. Of course, the location of the tour is subject to change for a wide range of reasons which are out of our control. Playa Conchal is the most frequent substitute location. This fun filled half day tour usually lasts around three to four hours including transportation and includes transportation, guide, equipment, water, and fruits.
The Standup Paddle Boarding at Flamingo is available from Central Guanacaste, Playa Grande, and Tamarindo

Our guide was knowledgeable about the ocean life and was able to point out sea turtles during out paddles trip to and from the island. Surprisingly easy to do and a great workout as well!
