We had our first ever SUP experience with Pineapple Tours and loved every minute of it! Our guide, Victor, was excellent and knew a lot about the wildlife and vegetation along the river. After a few hours of peaceful paddling, we were greeted with refreshments by Japo and watched the sunset over the beach. A fantastic tour and awesome people!... More

Great fun! I had never paddle boarded before and felt very comfortable after the great instruction we received from our guides. It was a beautiful excursion. It ended with a beach snack of wonderful fresh fruit while we watched the sunset over the ocean. Great times!

We had a great time, Michael was an excellent guide, he took us inside many caves with and without the kayak and at the end of the tour we also did some kayak surfing. Rachel prepared a beautiful fruit table after our adventure and they sent us the pictures that Michael took without charging anything. I truly recommend the Pineapple... More

I did this as an additional activity while I was on a yoga retreat. The people are super nice and our guide was very knowledgable about the ecosystem. We spent 2.5 hours on the river where it meets the ocean and saw tons of wildlife. I learned so much about the mangroves as well. The SUP was really fun and... More

This is the best way to experience Costa Rica! Loved every minute of it! Rachel and Nego and their guides are extremely knowledgeable and super friendly. I would highly recommend their tours to family and friends. Worth every penny. Would definitley explore their other tours. Pura vida!

For the price, I had expected a lot more than we got. I've done kayakking tours in the U.S. through mangroves and seasidemarshes and paid half the price for a guided tour that I understood. The guides were clearly knowledgeable and understood English but spoke it with such a thick accent that they were difficult to understand, so I really... More

I am very sorry you felt so horribly about your tour. The mangroves are a magical world that we, as a company, love showing people. The tour IS about wildlife, but it is also educational and beautiful and relaxing, with a little exercise too. We would really like to respond to your review because we put 100% of our heart...

If you like birds this tour is an absolute must but what really makes it are the people that run it. The couple that runs this business and their trusted side kick, Linda are great to be around and truly love what they do. That excitement makes the tour a joy as you paddle through the mangroves and see countless... More

Yes, the mangroves are a great place to go birding. On a typical tour, we see up to 20 different types of birds. And with my amazing guides, they will tell you all about the birds (and the mangroves and the other wildlife!) Thank you for coming with us! More

My fiancé and I toured the mangroves right outside of Dominical with Rachel, one of the owners of Pineapple Tours. Rachel was extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife, the area, and made us feel very comfortable. We saw some great birds and Rachel had a knack for spotting all the creatures hanging around. We highly recommend these guys for any of... More
