Flamingo Standup Paddle Boarding, Mountain Biking, & Kayaking

Are you headed to the Flamingo Beach, Guanacaste area for your next adventure in Costa Rica? At Pura Vida Ride we make it our responsibility to create an unforgettable experience for you from start to finish. We offer everything you need to create lifetime memories for you, your friends, and your family! Located 50 meters from the waters edge, we offer a full service rental shop for standup paddleboards, kayaks, mountain bikes, snorkel gear, volleyball, bocce ball, and body boards. The beach at Playa Danta has clean public restrooms, free parking with guards, lockers, ample shade, tables and chairs, outdoor showers, a sand volleyball court, rope swings for kids, and a general store for buying snacks, pastries, soft drinks, coffee, and the best gelato outside of Italy!

Flamingo Kayaking and Flamingo Stand Up Paddle Boarding cannot compare to the dramatic coastlines that Playa Danta boasts, as well as the ideal conditions of a protected flat-water bay shielded from larger swells and wind. Flamingo Mountain Biking enthusiasts regularly come to Pura Vida Ride to ride some of the most extensive and well-built single-track trails in Costa Rica. In fact, there are no real mountain biking opportunities in Flamingo Beach and Pura Vida Ride offers the nearest and most exciting option for mountain bikers! Imagine miles of professionally built and maintained single-track with panoramic ocean views and amazing cross country trails. Built to appeal to a variety of riders, the advanced rider will relish in the design of the climbs and descents built into the track, while beginners can take a slower ride and enjoy the adventure of experiencing something new. The quality hard tail and full suspension mountain bikes offered for rental are professionally maintained after every ride. Our rental equipment is top quality, offering a range of full suspension and hard tail bikes in both 26 inch and 29 er technology and brands including Kona, Trek, Rocky Mountain, and Yetti. In looking for a Flamingo Mountain Biking experience, Pura Vida Ride is located a short drive north in the town of Potrero. We can arrange transportation on your behalf to get you here as hassle free and quickly as possible.

Standup Paddle Boarding in Costa Rica is an adventurous way to view some of Guanacaste’s most stunning beaches and reefs, as well as to tour the coastline while getting a core body workout at the same time! Flamingo Standup Paddle Boarding is less than ideal due to issues of wind, waves, and conflicts with surfers and swimmers that crowd the shoreline. Pura Vida Ride in Playa Danta rivals Flamingo SUP with its protected flat-water bay, nearby islands calling for exploration, and generally mellow surf conditions for easy entry and exit from the ocean. Offering top of the line Surftech, Starboard, Channel Islands, and Ahmundson boards and paddles, the equipment is guaranteed to perform and provide the best experience possible.

Pura Vida Ride’s focus on guest service takes all the work out of enjoying the best SUP experience possible. Our trained and qualified guides bring the SUPs to the waters edge, provide a brief introduction to stand up paddle boarding, and see you safely into the water.

Dramatic coastlines, breathtaking reef systems, and exclusive sand beaches are just a few things you can look forward to on your kayak adventure around the Guanacaste Coast. Flamingo Kayaking offers challenges of wind, rough waves and an abundance of people to avoid, which detract from your kayaking experience. Playa Dante, just a short ride away, offers an amazing alternative: a flat-water bay, protected from wind and waves to provide the ideal kayaking experience. The abundance of sea life and breathtaking views will show you Costa Rica from the waters edge, creating memories for a lifetime. A fully qualified and service oriented staff will guide you to the beach and provide an introduction. Pura Vida Ride also offers tours for those looking to ensure the most amazing adventure possible.

Costa Rica offers a stunning landscape for astonishing photo opportunities and incredible adventure and Pura Vida Ride strives to provide an adventure that allows you to experience Costa Rica in all of its glory.
