Resort Private beach club
The resort owns a small private beach club about a 10 minute boat ride from the black sand beach where the resort is located. This beach is nice and has very clear water were you can watch the fish and rays and sharks swim near your feet. Just don't get too close! They have a snack bar there and it is included in the package. There are 4 trips a day and you have to book in advance because the boat is small and demand is high. It is a great little excursion and too bad that it is so hard to get the opportunity to get over there. See more photos in travelog.
- Diving and Snorkeling
The Allegro Papagayo Resort has a hike on the property. This path is clearly marked if you want to go on your own or every day at 10 am (except Sunday I think) they have a guided tour. The heat is extreme later in the day and the animals are less active so I would advise going early (like around 8 am). It will take about 2 hours out and back at a leisurely pace. It is surprising how many people don't make the effort to take the hike as it is really enjoyable and a great way to see more wildlife. We saw lots of birds including parakeets, many many iguanas, howler monkeys and lizards; most even cooperated and were near their designated sign! Also saw many cacti and interesting trees. See travelog for more photos.
