Immerse yourself in indescribable beauty, where nature reveals its flawlessness. In the mangrove tour everything flows harmoniously, the blend of fresh water and salt water, the diversity of the most extraordinary Costa Rica plants and wildlife in all its splendor. Allow us to guide you through our amazing mangrove areas in a boat or a kayak; the most natural way to get to know the nature and avoid heart it. The tide will help us by giving us a little push, while you’re paddling on a kayak the sounds of nature are pure and the breeze coming from the ocean mouth will hit you and make you love this Costa Rican piece of gold.

We had great time in this monkey tour. Jason the guide was absolutely amazing. He was funny, knowledgeable, very kind and professional. We saw crocodiles, snakes, special birds and obviously monkeys. We were able to take great pictures of the monkeys. Well worth the time and money. Highly recommended.

We were a group of 4 and joined the tour arranged by our hotel. Minibus pickup from the hotel was great for us as we were the last on but one family had been on the minibus for an hour, and they were very unhappy. The guide was Jason and he was very knowledgable about all the flora and fauna.... More

Jason collected us in a mini bus from our rented house the we stopped as the informal restaurant they frequent to order our food for after the trip.

This is a review of the mangrove boat tour. As per usual in Costa Rica our guide was great and knowledgeable/informative. The problem was we didn't see much in the way of wildlife (which is always a risk with this type of tour). You do get up close and personal with some monkeys (I'm guessing this is predictable as they... More

Basically the only reason I joined trip advisor right now is to review this tour. First off this was my first trip to Costa Rica and absolutely fell in love with it! There was very few bad moments, this was one of them. We paid $55 dollars per person which I had no problem with because I am a monkey... More

After meeting several people on our trip who told us about this tour, I knew we had to do it. We traveled the last week of May, during the beginning of low season. We made our reservation through our hotel, The Falls (also highly recommended) the day before. The tour hours are based on the tide. It ended up only... More

My boyfriend and I had the best time on our mangrove boat tour yesterday. Because it was the low season it ended up just being the two of us, our guide Jason, his adorable 3 year old son, and the boat driver. We saw lots of monkeys, several sloths, bats, crabs, lizards, vultures, kingfishers, engrids, and more wildlife. We also... More

We had our hotel call morning of to arrange an excursion and this was one of the only activities available last minute. Not only that, but originally we had planned to kayak but decided we would rather do the boat to go with the highly recommended guide, Jason. They were very accommodating and made it work.
