We love Costa Rica and the Dominical/Uvita area. Last year we wanted to do something a little more physical and strenuous than the usual mangrove tours. We had toured with Rachel and her team at Pineapple before and her Mangrove tour was fantastic. Rachel knows her stuff!! But we wanted a little more exercise this time along with an opportunity...

Michael is wonderful, authentic and a great guide. Relaxing tour with interesting birds, lizards, fish, monkeys, sloths. Educational and fun mangrove tour. Will book with Michael again.

There were only 4 of us on this kayak tour through the mangroves which made it intimate and personalized. We followed our guide Michael to the launch point, stopping along the way to look at sloths and dolphins surfing in the ocean!! Michael had thought of everything for his guests, from sunblock to hats to bugspray and dry bags. While... More

I did two tours with Pineapple while in Dominical and loved them both. The river mangrove SUP trip was very mellow and nice. Michael was a great and informative guide and we all learned a lot about the environment. Excellent trip to do if you have kids as it is safe and fun. I also did the kayak tour to... More

Our family did the mangrove tour with Michael as our tour guide. It was one of my favorite experiences on our trip. We did a lot of high adrenaline activities, and this was less so--perfect for our last day. You don't need any previous kayak experience--this is totally chill. Michael was a fantastic guy and shared so much knowledge about... More

We own a vacation rental in Ojochal, Costa Rica and when my nieces came to visit, they found this fantastic SUP tour! Neither had done SUP before, but the guides were great and taught them everything they needed to know. Every detail was perfect (including the massive rain storm while they were out!). It was a great experience for both... More

Our guide Felix was knowledgeable and funny. He pointed out many birds, crabs and even a boa up in a tree. Our daughter and Felix used SUPs, while my husband and I decided upon kayaks. We easily stayed together and all greatly enjoyed the sights and sounds of the mangrove forest. Highly recommended!

We took the mangrove today with our family including a 4 and 8 year old and had a great and informative time. Michael was just wonderful and so full of information and passion for the natural world. He spotted so many birds, tons of raccoons, crabs, iguanas, and taught us a lot about the ecosystem. Highly recommend, not to mention... More

We have been on a number of mangrove tours in Florida and we knew we'd like the ecosystem but didn't expect to learn so much about the mangroves! Our guide, Michael, and his partner Dainir (hope I spelled that right) were great. Michael knows more about mangroves than any guide we ever had in the states and led us deep... More
