We are so happy we chose this tour. Francisco was our guide and was friendly, knowledgeable, and expert at spotting wildlife. In the span of 2.5 hours we saw spider monkeys, a large capuchin monkey family, a cayman, turtles, both two-toed and three-toed sloths, and beautiful lizards. My kids and I loved this experience and it was a highlight of... More

This was an awesome tour! Our guide Fernando rocked - he was very patient and helpful. We were very lucky on the river portion of the tour. We saw sloths, turtles, toucans and an Iguana. The sea portion was certainly more challenging but the water is refreshing when you lose your balance.

This was a first for me and I wasn't sure what to expect! I had a great afternoon with the most professional instructor Francisco! He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable not just regarding the SUP but also the wildlife. Would always do it again! Would highly recommend green sup!

But I couldn't have dreamed of a guide better than Francisco who is not just a professional SUP instructor but also a very insightful wildlife guide!

It was our first time paddle boarding. Our guide Francesco was really friendly and helpful. His dog joined us as well and would hop from board to board along the way. After a quick lesson we were on our way down the completely placid river. Nice and slow paced for beginners. Saw lots of wildlife including monkeys, sloths, turtles, and... More

Our guide Francesco was very nice. He was really keen to look for animals, in which he succeed many times. We saw sloths, turtles, guanas and even tucans! First we went SUP boarding in the river, very beautiful and quiet. Later on we headed towards the sea. A lot more difficult, but fun too. The tour ended after two hours.... More

This was seriously the best thing I did during my stay here, and I only wish I had gone sooner so I could have spent more time out paddling! I went on the river tour first, with just two other people -- it's very calm and easy for paddling, it is so cool going further into the jungle that way,... More

We had a great trip with a wonderful guide who pointed out the amazing plants and animals as we went along the river. It was a very tranquil paddle up and down the river and then we went out into the sea. It felt like we had 2 completely different trips after the gentleness of the river to then the... More

Our family of four absolutely loved this tour (SUP) ... I made a very last minute booking on Christmas Eve for Christmas day which they accepted. It was arranged via email and their response was prompt. The whole tour was relaxed but professional, and has been the highlight of our holiday to date. Our guide (sorry his name escapes me!),...
