Our Sea Kayak trip takes about 3 hours.
It starts on the coastal highway and ends
up at the Bahari-Rafiki Beach camp. It is
great for families, although some paddling
is required. We do have a double kayak if
someone does not feel up to the challenge
alone. We also carry a rope to tow anyone
who gets tired. The adventure explores the
river, estuary and mangrove habitats of the
Savegre River, Playa El Rey National Park
and the Portalón Private Reserve. Guests
have a unique opportunity to see birds,
monkeys, reptiles, and aquatic life. This
trip is magical!
Matapalo has a well-established turtle
program. Each year thousands of turtles
are released from the beach! Guests can see
Olive Ridley turtles nesting between the
months of July and November. Baby turtles
are released starting at the end of August
through December. The Bahari-Rafiki Beach
Camp may have a nest on site, and we will
publish the expected birth date of the
turtles if any guests are interested.
Visiting the turtle project is free, but
if guests are interested in going for a
night turtle walk.
The walks lasts about 2 hours,
it costs $15 per person.
