Beautiful Tour!
Michelle_B, Feb 2023
Extraordinary canoe tour with Jarrison! He was clearly well versed on Costa Rican wildlife and was extremely helpful and interesting on the tour. We saw several caimen, sloths, and monkeys, not to mention the abundance of amazing birds! Aside from the animals, the scenery was extraordinary. Definitely would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Tortuguero, but especially for photographers and bird enthusiasts.
Unique experience of tropical forest

Unique experience with a guide who made us observe leguans, turtles, little caymans, monkeys etc. Very beautiful Natural area of tropical forest. With the canoe, you work yourself and you are rather slow, but the tour feels private and very rewarding.
Amazing educational Tour

Absolut empfehlenswert.

Die Kanutour wurde durch den Guide kompetent und aufschlussreich durchgeführt. Wir sahen Vögel, Kaimane, Geckos und verschiedene andere Tiere. Es wurde über das Leben der Tiere informiert sowie über die Region und über Costa Rica.
Estupendo paseo por canoa y avistamiento de fauna.

Nous avons parcouru la lagune et la rivière pendant 3h avec Boa notre guide, très sympathique, et qui nous a appris pleins de choses sur la rainforest et ses animaux avec beaucoup d'humour ! Nous le remercions pour cette expérience enrichissante et le bon moment passé en sa compagnie :-)
