I thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful morning kayaking tour this November in the Baru reserve. Our guide was very kind, helpful, knowledgeable, gave us lots of information, and pointed out wildlife on the way. He took wonderful photos which were later emailed to us by Rachel free of charge, including one of the red macaws who arrived in the trees outside... More

We took the 7 AM mangrove tour with Victor as our guide. The morning was sunny and pleasant and the kayaking leisurely. We did not see much wildlife but the mangroves themselves are eerily beautiful. We did have to "drag" our kayaks at one point so be prepared to walk in the water , not deep, but also grateful that... More

Rachel, Nego and team were the consummate hosts! Pleasant, curious, informative, educational and… ah… relaxing! We traveled down from the Marriot Los Suenos on two separate occasions to take advantage of their expertise in the local eco environments. The first was a leisurely paddle through the mangrove’s let by Rachel; we enjoyed the flora, monkeys, birds and a glorious sunset!... More

We were expecting just to rent kayaks to go ocean kayaking. What we got was a very knowledgeable guide who took us on a 3 hour tour of the mangroves. He explained a lot of the eco system and wildlife. Afterwards, we were treated to fresh local fruit. It was a very beautiful tour. We were so glad we were... More

My partner and I were led on a wonderful kayak tour of the Mangroves at Hacienda Baru by Victor. It was serene, peaceful, beautiful and fun!! Victor is extremely knowledgeable about the flora and fauna--telling us everything about the ecosystem of the Mangrove, and pointing out different kinds of critters and their role in it. We even saw a caiman!... More

We were recommended by a friend from home to check with Junior for surfing lessons in Dominical, Costa Rica. Their daughter got lessons from him the last two two years at summer camp. Our kids loved it, had fun and wanted to go surfing everyday. Junior and his brother Wonka are very friendly and caring. If you are in Dominical... More

Our guide Michael for the half day tour was terrific. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. He explained a lot about the local ecosystem and history.This tour is a lot more than just kayaking. We saw white faced monkeys, brown pelicans and a sea turtle. We surfed waves on our kayaks, walked through 2 caves, and drank from a coconut... More

I am more of an adrenaline junky, apparently. We have kayaks at home and for me, this trip was too slow. That being said, I did enjoy it! Our three girls (6, 8, 9) REALLY liked it. The older two paddled themselves most of the time. When they needed a break the guides pulled them ;-) If you know how... More
