Tour operator’s description: Get Ready to “Walk on Water!” Try the fastest-growing paddle sport in the world during your vacation in Costa Rica! Stand Up Paddling (SUP) was developed by surfers in Hawaii but has its roots in ancient Polynesia as an early form of transportation from island to island — now it’s the latest craze among water enthusiasts! Try Stand Up Paddling in Costa Rica! Stand Up Paddling looks exactly as it sounds: you stand up on a large, wide, super buoyant board similar to a surfboard & use a long paddle to move yourself along. If you’re a first-timer, you should try doing Stand Up Paddling on the picturesque Lake Arenal while you are in the La Fortuna and Arenal Volcano areas. You will have the picturesque, behemoth Arenal Volcano as gorgeous the backdrop of your photos if you do Stand Up Paddling in Arenal! Once you get the hang of Stand Up Paddling, you’ll fall in love with the sport and want to try it again! Stand Up Paddle (SUP) Lesson and Tour Logistics: We pick-you up from your hotel and head to Lake Arenal. The pristine, undeveloped Lake Arenal is the 2nd-largest body of fresh water in Central America and the ideal location to take a SUP lesson. Receive a thorough safety talk and Stand Up Paddle (SUP) lesson and continue to practice under the careful watch of your SUP instructor. Take a tour of the West-end of Lake Arenal while you go paddle boarding along. Get excellent views of the behemoth Arenal Volcano in the background for the best picture-taking opportunities. Learn about the interesting flora and fauna of the Arenal Volcano area. Enjoy a tropical fruit snack & drinks. Additional details: We use some of the best Stand Up Paddle boards in the industry.
