Beach & Snorkeling
The beach by Tiskita is a wilderness beach stretching for miles. Along the beach there are rock formations with tide pools to explore. Some of the tide pools become like swimming pools at low tide and are ideal for swimming and snorkeling.
The beach by Tiskita has black volcanic sand lined with Coconut Palm and Beach Almond trees. The laid-back surf town Pavones is located a 50-minute walk up north, and to the south of Tiskita lies Punta Burica, the largely undeveloped peninsula that shares a border with Panama.
The beach and the warm ocean are ideal for horseback riding, bodyboarding, surfing, and snorkeling. Bodyboards and snorkel gear are available at the lodge, free of charge.
The tide pools vary in size and temperature. Some of the tide pools that are exposed at low tide are large enough to swim and snorkel in. They can also be explored on foot.
There are many colorful species of tropical fish and other marine life in the tide pools, for example, parrot fish, pufferfish, moray eels, and angelfish. When the tide comes in, bigger fish appear.
Snorkel gear is available at the lodge, free of charge. More experienced snorkelers may want to bring their own gear.
