Great Fun!
Jul 2021
We wanted to see as much wildlife as possible on our trip to Costa Rica and this tour didn't disappoint. Within the first five minutes of paddling we came upon a troop of monkeys and watched them move through the mangroves from just a few feet away. Our guide Danny was awesome! He has decades of experience working as a guide in Costa Rica and it shows. He shared his knowledge of the eco-system and his love for the natural environment and all of it was interesting to us and our teenage daughters.
One tip if you book through an agency, make sure you specify if you want single or double kayaks as that decision has to be made ahead of time. Highly recommend this tour!

Mangrove Magic
Jun 2021 • Family
We traveled in June and we’re excited to see as much natural environment and animals as possible. Our guide, Geiner Mena Murillo was amazing! He greeted our family, all adults, with kind and pleasant demeanor. Geiner was knowledgeable, attentive and made the experience fun and engaged throughout the travel in the van, as well as during the actual kayaking . It rained as we started but Geiner made sure safety was a priority and did not miss one opportunity to show us the magic of the mangrove! My 20 yr old and 16 yr old sons had a great time learning about the environment in the beautiful country. They were able to ask questions throughout.

Geiner also answered questions for my older son about other animals he was interested in learning about in Costa Rica. I just can’t say enough about our tour guides ability to take a rainy day ( which turned sunny half way through) and make it one of our best experiences in CR!! Thank you Geiner!

We were able to get up close with crabs, saw long nosed bats, fish, birds…and all in the peace and beauty of the mangrove. The kayaking was fun and safe. I would highly recommend the experience and if you are lucky enough to get Geiner as a tour guide tell him thank you from the New Jersey Three!

Relax, enjoy and learn
Nov 2020 • Couples
Daniel was not only a knowledgeable and passionate guide, he also managed to get us excited about the littlest of things, like how some mangroves have a single yellow leaf on every branch.

The whole tour was very well organized, communication with Tucanes Tours during booking was clear, precise and speedy.

Definitely recommend going if you are looking for a relaxed afternoon in a rare ecosystem and don't mind learning a new thing or two :)

Kayak tour with great guides through the mangroves
We booked the Tour and we were picked up at our Hotel perfectly on time. The overall organisation was excellent.
Our guides have been Dani and César.
They gave us some good information about the proper rowing technique before the start of the tour. During the tour we got a lot of information about the fauna and flora of the mangroves area. They took very well care about us, being novices as kayakers. Also during the bus trip to and from the mangroves Dani explained about the agricultural cultivation of the Quepos area.
After the tour we had an early dinner at the restaurant of Tucanes Tours together with all kayakers.
A great experience, highly recommended.

Fun and Wonderful, Informative guides
Jan 2020
Wow! This was my first time kayaking and it was very fun. From what others have told me kayaking through the mangroves is a bit more difficult than ocean or lake kayaking.
Daniel and Cesar were very accommodating and helpful. They pointed out wildlife that we may not have seen if they had not done so. The company picked us up at our resort and drove us back. We enjoyed a very nice lunch on the way back to the resort.

DL2010Litleton_CO, Thank you, thank you, thank you! Actually mangrove kayaking is easier (compared to ocean kayaking) as we schedule the trips according to the tide: the trip starts with rising tides (easy to get into the mangroves) and ends with descending tide (easy to come back); bottom line, you are always paddling "pro" tide. Ocean kayaking is easy too, but requires a little more effort. We can only imagine the happiness of Daniel and Cesar when we will tell them about your review! ¡Muchas gracias y saludos!

Kayaking in the massive mangroves
Dec 2019 • Solo
Cesar was our guide! I am an experienced solo traveler and this was my first time I. Costa Rica 🇨🇷. The trip was super fun! I live in Florida so mangroves are not new to me, but WOW! This please is amazing! The wild life was fantastic and the information was perfect and personal from Cesar. There was a couple and a family on the trip as well.

Amazing kayaking
Nov 2019 • Family
We had such a great time with Alan. Our kids, age 13 and 10, loved it as well. We were able to get double kayaks so they didn’t have to go alone. It would have been difficult for them to maneuver by themselves. The guides were super helpful and lunch was excellent. We would definitely book with them again!
