    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.

    Great kayaking experience
    Joyce_G, Aug 2023
    Had a great time with my two kids, aged 11 and 13. The guide was extremely helpful and very nice (patient) whilst we learned to navigate through the mangrove - none of us had done kayaking before. The equipment was good and the organisers very efficient from start to finish. The meal at the end was a surprise (in the heart of town) and very delicious. They also picked up & dropped off at the hotel, which was super convenient. We got to see monkeys up close too, which was a bonus. Would definitely recommend!
    Awe inspiring
    Neil_Y, Aug 2023
    We felt so privileged to watch the monkeys playing with each other. I was particularly transfixed as one tiny monkey played with half a coconut shell in the water. Roberto our guide was so knowledgeable and went above and beyond to ensure our safety and enjoyment was paramount at all times. He was a gentleman.

    Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly and showed us several animals in the mangroves that just blended in with the trees. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing Kayak tour.
    A relaxing morning out of Quepos.
    Colin_N, Mar 2023
    Xavier was a good guide, explaining to us about the different types of mangroves. We saw capuchin monkeys along the way. It was a very peaceful way to spend the morning.

    El Gordo was fantastic! Who is a wealth of knowledge, great sense of humor, trust, rush, to get through hard stuff with our tandem kayaks, and we met the challenge. Look for an anteater, but didn’t find him and he was disappointed as Marie, but the whole trip was super enjoyable and relaxing. We were in the shade most of the time sometimes in the sun produce a very worthwhile trip. Our meal afterward was satisfying with some arroz con huevos and some plantains that were delicious. to make a point that Esteban was elite.
    Enjoyed this experience; was peaceful and relaxing

    This was a nice little excursion although going later in the day (330 pm) means the flies are out and in your face, so remember the bug spray.
    Neat Family Experience in the Mangroves!
    larcher, Dec 2022
    Our large family of 13, with ages ranging from 18-78 years of age, loved this excursion! We learned so much about the Mangroves and their ecosystem. It was peaceful and enjoyable! The lunch was great in Quepos; the tour guides Danny & Lisandro were very helpful and knowledgeable; and, Chiky the driver was great as well! Thank you, Jade Tours, for a fun day!

    Fun experience
    Kim_B, May 2022
    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.
    John_W, Mar 2022
    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.
    A Must Vaca Do

    Had a fabulous trip with Edgar, our tour guide. Very knowledgeable about the birds, amphibians and all of nature. Very gentle manner. Went with 4 other friends and was a highlight of our trip.
    Tina_D, Nov 2021
    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!
