Sail AwayWhether under the noonday sun or overlooking a romantic sunset, one of the best ways to explore the Nicoya Peninsula is by sailboat or catamaran. There's a good chance you'll spot green turtles and dolphins swimming through the Guanacaste waters and, depending on the season, even humpback whales will join the show. Most tours offer snorkeling and swimming stops so you can get up close and personal with the tropical fish and coral.
