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

Victor is the nicest guy and also really knowledgeable about the whole area. After the trip, which isn't at all as tiring as I expected it to be. At the end of the trip they also provide you with fruits and water which are great as well

We did the kayak trip off whales tail yesterday. The water was flat (which was good) sun not too hot! Michael and Hoppy did an excellent job of managing our group and showing us some of the neat sights in the area. Muchas gracias, pura vida!

We had a relaxed, self-guided tour up the Baru in a couple of Pineapple's tandem kayaks. Our two young children (3 & 5) enjoyed the ride! The kayaks were easy to paddle and very stable. I didn't feel like we were going to tip as I have in some other kayaks! I communicated with Rachel, one of the owners. We... More

We took the Hatillo Mangroves tour with Pineapple Kayak Tours while on our honeymoon and we had a great time! Our guide, Michael, was great. He knows so much about the estuaries and you can tell he really loves what he does! We not only saw a bunch of animals on the tour, he even pulled over on the way... More

Our group of 12 young adults had an excellent experience with Pineapple Tours kayaking in the mangrove. As trip organizer I was especially pleased with the service and help in selecting the right tour for our group, and the relaxed and efficient way last-minute, unforeseen adjustments were handled. This is a great way to see wildlife and get out into... More

We did a great mangrove paddle board trip with Pinapple. They looked after us really well from the start (transport, bug spray, hats, teaching and lovely fruit at the end) the conditions were great for beginners and the guide was knowledgable. We saw lots more wildlife than we had anticipated, getting close (but not too close) to all sorts of... More

We went on a day that was a bit overcast which was great. We got a very educational experience and it was a bunch of fun. Kayak up the saltwater side and the freshwater side and see wildlife and have a fruit snack in the middle.

I went with a friend and was put with a guide by the name of Micheal who was incredible! He knew every question we asked him and then some. The guy is a walking encyclopedia for plants and biology.
