Dominical and Uvita are two neighbouring surf towns on the Pacific side of Costa Rica.

Luckily Zion Paragliding have rounded up the best tours in the area so you can make the most of your time here.


Tandem Paragliding with Zion Paragliding in Dominical

Flying over the jungle, looking at the view of the Whales Tale and feeling like a bird are just a few of the magical moments you can experience when you paraglide with us. We think our tandem paragliding tour in Dominical is the best of all the tours out there and that’s why its top of the list. Of course, we might be just a little but biased but try it for yourself and find out what its like to free fly, just like a bird.


Costa Rica Dive and Surf - Uvita and Dominical

The crew here have locations in Uvita and Dominical and lots of different tours to choose from. They are PADI certified and one of the only places in the area to scuba dive but if you want something a little more relaxed the snorkel tour in Marino Ballena lets you experience the beautiful nature of Costa Rica living under the sea. The Marino Ballena National Park is home to one of the largest Pacific coral reefs in Central America and has plenty of life to feast your eyes on.

Monkey Rides ATV Tours - Dominical

See the jungle from the other perspective and ride through mountain roads and trails on quad bikes.

And don’t forget to hit these guys up if you need a shuttle to get to the airport or your next destination along the coast.

Dolphin Tours, Uvita

As the name suggests these guys offer Dolphin watching tours amongst other boat tours around Uvita and towards the Osa. The best tour they offer is the Whale and Dolphin tour. Seeing these prehistoric mammals in their natural habitat is a truly magical experience.
