A 20-minute hike toward Agujitas from Playa San Josecito, a hermit called Ricardo ('Clavito') lives by the Río Claro and runs hugely entertaining canoeing tours that start with a rope-swing plunge and continue to some waterfalls with refreshing plunge pools. Various tour operators can drop you off by boat, leaving you to walk back to Agujitas afterward.
