Things to Do at Bahia Pez Vela Resort
Start your day off with a light breakfast as you sit out on the patio and enjoy the waves crashing in the distance. With each villa offering WiFi, spectacular ocean views, and central A/C to keep the heat at bay, comfort is a top priority. After you've sipped your freshly roasted coffee, head down to the beach to soak up some sun and let the day slip by. Check out the two infinity pools to do a few laps, or simply unwind poolside with a good book and a cocktail.
Contact the staff and arrange a deep-sea fishing tour with an experienced captain to take you out onto the high seas to cast a line and try to reel in a coveted trophy fish. If fishing isn't your thing, try an ocean exploring adventure to learn about the history of the coast and sail the same waters as ancient explorers.
Jump on your mountain bike and navigate the rugged terrain of the jungle when you reserve your spot on a mountain biking tour. If you're looking for something a little faster, try hopping on an ATV and weave your way through the dense jungles, over rocks, and through running streams.
Nearby Fun and Daytrips
Take a helicopter high into the sky on an aerial tour of the coast and over dotted jungles. Be sure to snap a few panoramic shots to preserve this once-in-a-lifetime moment for years to come.

This is also a great spot to go dolphin and whale watching, or swim and build sand castles on the beach of the calm bay.
