Bosque has been working with Escondido Trex, the premier kayaking outfitter on the Osa Peninsula, for over 12 years. Escondido Trex offers many exciting kayaking adventures that will allow you to explore the beautiful scenery and wide variety of wildlife found in the area with the latest in kayaking equipment and fun-loving, knowledgeable guides. The sunset kayaking trip is one of the most popular for guests at Bosque, appropriate for all ages and skill levels. The trip leaves in the early afternoon from Bosque to go to town, where the 14’ skirtless kayaks are put in at a beach on the outskirts of Puerto Jimenez. Depending on the tide, your guide may take you into the mangroves for a look at the plants and animals in this interesting and diverse biological setting, then you will head out to the Golfo Dulce for some kayaking in the open gulf. There is a good chance you will see various fish, birds, dolphins, and rays. There is a beautiful beach where you can swim. The trip culminates with a spectacular 360° view of the sky, lit up with the vivid colors of the sunset, from your kayak in the gulf. Sometimes, if the moon is right, you can also watch the water light up with the incredible photoluminescence! Then you will be treated to dinner in town at one of the local restaurants, and have a chance to see the town’s nightlife. You will arrive back at Bosque about 9:30pm-10pm. It is a good idea to bring a change of clothes for dinner and the ride home (they have a very casual area to shower off after the kayak trip), some pocket money, and a flashlight for when you get back to Bosque.
