    Great experience
    Jennifer_A, June 2022
    Jorge was a great tour guide. He taught us so much about the wildlife and vegetation, as well as some history and economy and commerce. The kayaking was relaxing and beautiful.
    Wonderful excursion in the mangroves

    The torrential rain cleared up quickly and our trip was fantastic. Jorge was very knowledgeable and engaging. The experience was very worthwhile, and we recommend it highly.
    Fun experience

    Our group enjoyed the kayaking. Roy was knowledgeable and provided history on the area. We saw many animals: monkeys, bats, lizards and an iguana. The kayaking was easy except for the end when you go against the current. The dinner was a bonus and very good. We had a good time.

    Great time kayaking! It was tough at first but one you get to the shade it’s more chill. The monkeys make it all with it in the end!!
    Relaxed tour with great wildlife veiwing
    Annaliese_R, Jan 2022
    The mangrove area is truly beautiful and we saw a ton of birds. Fabio was an excellent tour guide. It was a lot of fun to talk to him about different birds around the country. We even saw a couple of more rare bird species. The pace of kayaking was relaxed, just enough to get a little exercise, but not enough to leave you tired the next day.

    This was so challenging seeing as this was my boyfriends first time kayaking and it was a double kayak. The tour guide was so patient and easy going he never left us behind! Tour was beautiful and very informative!
    Celine_T, July 2021
    The tour was very relaxing and somewhat of an adventure as well. We saw a lot of monkeys from up close as well as a lot of other wildlife
