During our honeymoon in Uvita, my husband and I booked 3 amazing excursions with Bahia Aventuras: Snorkeling at Cano Island, the Corcovado Nature Hike, and a Private Beach and Waterfall Tour. This review will be for all 3 tours in the order listed above. Our first tour was Snorkeling at Cano Island and after reading several reviews we became a... More

We had our Bahia Aventuras trip planned through Kura Design Villa where we were staying. As it was the end of June, this is a little early for seeing whales, yet our tour guide and boat captain managed to drive some 25km out to sea and find us a result! We saw a Bride Whale. The tour guide was very... More

Guide, staff, and crew made this a terrific experience. Wonderful to explore Corcovado for first time. Tour is pretty superficial excursion no more than a half mile into forest, but we understood it had to be that way to be friendly for all audiences.

This was an interesting tour and would have been much better had the weather cooperated. The seas were very rough and it rained on us most of the way to Cano Island. It seemed like the boat captain was in a hurry which made the trip that much rougher. Snorkeling was good as long as you have no problems with... More

My fiance and I came to Bahia Adventures for the whale watching tour one day and the Corcovado tour the next day. Both tours were well run. Our guides were fun, witty, and knowledgeable. It was literally door to door service and everyone couldn't have been nicer. We did see a whale on the tour despite it being late in... More

I booked a Corcovado day trip back in a March for today and paid for it. We drove 1.5 hours each way to get to Bahia. Upon arrival I was told our tour was for tomorrow, not today. I pulled out my email to show the date confirmed (today) and they then said someone made a mistake. We spent the... More

We booked the trip to Corcovado National Park. After a 2 hour trip across a very rough Pacific Ocean we arrived at the Ranger Station and begain our guided tour. This is no nature tour. It is what it is advertised as, "A Hiking Tour". This was a non-stop hike that was not enjoyable. It was more like a forced... More

We took the full day boat tour to Corcovado and had a wonderful day. The entire staff - the office manager, boat captain, mate and nature guide - were fun, fabulous, professional and very knowledgable. The boat and all equipment was clean and well maintained and we felt very safe in their competent hands while on the ocean and on... More

Whale and Dolphin Encounter Tour, Bahia Aventuras - 4.5 out of 5 I’d have definitely given this tour 5 out of 5 if we’d actually seen a whale or dolphin! Great views of brown boobies, frigate birds and hawksbill turtle with wonderful local stories from our guide who was an ex-fisherman. We really enjoyed snorkelling off the reef and saw... More

Had a great day despite some heavy rain...being prepared makes sense in the "rain forest"...my wife, son and I were part of a group of nine with Caesar as our guide. Not ten steps into the forest from the beach my wife spotted a rather large lump curled up next to a tree...she alerted everyone in the group and Caesar... More
