This is a small family run treehouses rentals and adventure center. We offer surf tours, surf camps, daily surf lessons & kayak tours services. Our tree houses are nice and mellow with a truly Tico flair. You will learn to surf or improve your surfing abilities, soak up the sunshine, have transportation to and from the airport and area beaches. At Blue Barrel Surf School you learn to surf with those who do it every day of their lives at some of the best beaches on Earth. We take you through undeveloped villages, across rivers, and along jungles teeming with monkeys, and tropical birds. Popo's Kayak Tours are one of a kind adventures! Kayaking & snorkelingi with us to the Isla Chora and join us on our wildlife float trip down the Ora River. Lots of action, but in a safe, mindful way. We are the pionners of kayaking in the area, since 1991. If you are looking for fun & safe adventures in Costa Rica, you're at the right place!!
