Tours and Activities

Want to tour a volcano? Go scuba diving? Whale watching? Looking for a rainforest adventure? Rent a bike? Or perhaps you love surfing, kayaking, rafting, riding horses or golf?

Tourist Information FlamingoWhatever your preferred activity, whatever your passion, the go-to place is Tourist Information Flamingo. Randall Fields will arrange it all for you, and it won't cost you a penny more than booking it yourself. There's so many choices, the only thing you will be lacking is enough time!

Fishing Charters

Las Brisas is a sturdy craft that can take you out to where the big billfish are, or just cruise around the inshore area, where people have made some surprising catches. Your skipper is Captain Tom, a longtime Surfside resident who has handled boats all his life and knows all the best places on our coast. A day out with Capt. Tom is an unforgettable experience.


There are many good local places to eat and drink. While all the favourites are on the menus, as you might expect, seafood is a specialty here. And it's fresh! When you see Catch of the Day on these menus, they really mean it! Prices are low to moderate, about half what you'd pay in Canada. Local spots include: El Castillo, Las Brisas, Maxwell's, PlaeMar, the Shack, and Sol y Mar. Further afield are Don Brasilito's and many more. We have provided a detailed map of our favourites for download here.

Night Life

Things get pretty quiet in Surfside most evenings after about 10 PM. On weekends, there is often an excellent band at El Castillo or the Happy Snapper.

In fact, the southern version of Canada's world-renowned Downchild Blues Band plays local venues weekly for a few months in high season. Three bars in town have karaoke nights.

There are a few clubs in nearby Flamingo, like the Monkey Bar and Amberes with dancing to deejays or live music.
