    We did alot of tours in the area and this was one of our favorites - very interesting to learn about the various animals, how they ended up there and potential release - we were lucky to see most of the nocturnal ones on the 3pm tour - this is a nonprofit so all of the fees go to support the volunteer organization - you can also order food/drinks before or after at Villas Alturas with a beautiful view.

    There were a lot of WOWs as we explored this exhibit! Lots to see! Good price too! Nice setting set up in the mountain surrounded by the rainforest.

    We love this little beach. Shared by Ticos and visitors especially at sunset, it has a more local feel than many of the of the other beaches around. There is no fee to use this beach and ample parking. It can get crowded on the weekends. There are a few locals selling coconuts and simple treats especially on the weekends. This is the beach where beginner surfers like to come at high tide. At low tide it is a wide landing strip for parasailers that come in off the higher hills. Great sunsets and you often see local fishing boats getting ready to go out at high tide. We found this is a family oriented beach where kids are playing and adults can manage the waves and spend time in the water. There are no life guards.

    This is the most gorgeous shala I have ever been to. The teaching is world class- Eleonora and Amelie are great - all the teachers are world class and varied. If you live yoga be sure to come to class. A healing good feeling experience

    Thank you

    We were in Dominical and looking for a massage. I had the most wonderful massage by Cristina and my mom by Sianny. Perfect amount of pressure but also relaxing. Felt reborn afterwards. Heaven! If I lived here I would visit weekly.

    Very professional and helpful. In time for our rides. We felt safe and it was so nice of him to get to atm machine. And most of all, all cred to him for turning back and help a sloth over a high trafficking road.

    I've gotten TONS of massages all around the world, and WOW what an experience this was, Karla took me on such a wonderful spiritual journey and left me in the clouds. Her touch is so magical, your body will be left in a trance of peace, love & light. I'd highly recommend her and can't wait for our paths to cross again.
    Thank you again for such an amazing experience!

    My husband and kids and I recently took the mangrove kayak tour and it was great. Our guide Victor shared so much information with us, not only about the mangroves and their ecology, but also about local history. Booking and meetup were super smooth and we wouldn't hesitate to go again.

    My Girlfriend and I decided to come to Dominical for 19 days to surf. After two days of surfing on our own, we decided to take an intermediate surflesson at Dominical Surf School. We had an amazing time and took from there a surflesson each day.

    Our Surf-teacher Alex was amazing! He is an amazing guy, friendly, funny and yet very professional! He understood our (different) surfing levels perfectly and planned the lessons accordingly, so we both made huge improvments. Since the intermediate lessons are in max groups size of 3 you get the absolut best out of it.

    Debbie and the rest of the Team are super friendly aswell, and try to help wherever they can. There is also the possibility to make videos of your surflesson for a fair price and review them together with your teacher and that helps a lot with your improvment!

    The Surflessons give you access to 3 different beaches, according to your skill level aswell!

    All in all I can only recommand going there. You will have the time lf your live! We are already looking into the next possibility to come here!

    Great Work, keep it up!!

    I went white water rafting on the 25th January, I had the most amazing time. The team consisting of Luis, Ronnie and the driver (apologies I can’t remember his name) were fantastic. The trip was really well organised, easy to understand safety briefing and the trip was great fun. Luis is lovely, knowledgable about the area, plants, birds the list goes on. I can’t recommend this company highly enough. If you are thinking of going white water rafting then choose this company.

    Perfect place to learn to surf. Our instructor Gonsalo was great! He not only ensured we had two great days of surfing but also empowered us for the future. Thank you! Easy place to work with. Nice surf & lovely quiet beach. Great town!

    Our family was looking for some reasonably priced things to remember our vacation. We almost walked past this gem, it looked too small. We went in and found the motherload of both typical touristy stuff but also had cool and affordable artsy things. We loaded up. Carlos was super cool and his shop was awesome!
