Kayaking

The kayaking is great at the beach and along the nearby Río Coto Colorado, lined with mangroves.

Cabinas Los Cocos. Cabinas Los Cocos has a popular tour ($50 per person, minimum two passengers) that takes you for a 1½-hour motorboat ride up the Coto Colorado River, then a magical two-hour kayak tour along a jungly mangrove channel and a relaxing paddle, moving downstream with the current, back to the river mouth. Captain Susan can identify the birds you'll see along the way. The company also rents user-friendly sit-on-top kayaks with backrests for $5 per hour. Beach road, north of Cabinas Sol y Mar, Playa Zancudo, 60704. 2776–0012.
