    We had an amazing tour! Christopher was our guide and he was fabulous. We were able to see multiple birds and heard the howler monkeys. He was very knowledgeable on all things mangrove and was super easy to talk with. We also had to rearrange our schedule due to an injury and the company was amazing in working with us. Would highly recommend
