A short water tour of the Rio San Juan shore line with several stops. Try to book when the ocean is calm as there is much more to see. The tour also includes a stop at Playa Caleton where there is food and refreshments. The Captain will ask how long you want to stay so take your time and enjoy.

a nice spot to stop and sit under the trees and watch the local kids swim as you have a nice cold beer but the new restaurant across from it is awful and expensive go to café Paris

Plan on seeing the turtles at the spring next to the restaurant. The bird life was unique and fish life all around. and maybe stop for lunch.

I've been to this lagoon a few times and I've actually seen it on lists of "world waterways you need to see. " it is beautiful. Taking a boat ride through it is totally worth it

It was a stormy day but we still managed to see the lagoon, mangrove, egret's nesting, and some coral out in the ocean. It was a fun and interesting trip.

This is a nice little trip through the mangrove swamps, which lead out into the ocean eventually. There are some nice bars and food in the area, if your looking to just chill after a nice boat ride.
