Why go to Aguas Claras?
A Costa Rica holiday is bound to include action, adventure and travel, so it’s good to balance these with a spell of relaxation, preferably by the coast. Aguas Claras is just the place! With its attractive architecture, lush gardens and friendly service you soon succumb to the laid back lifestyle of the southern Caribbean coast. Laze by the pool, sip a chilled drink, enjoy a spa treatment, amble down to the beach, and, if feeling energetic explore by sea kayak, test your surfing skills and go hiking in the rainforest. The time is yours to fill as you wish.
Wildlife around Aguas Claras
The flower-filled gardens at Aguas Claras attract a variety of birds and butterflies which you can observe as you relax. In nearby Gandoca-Manzanillo Refuge you can expect to see monkeys, sloths and a wide range of birds including toucans.
