The time I spent with the guys at Experience Nosara on the river was such an eye opening experience. I learned about mangos, wildlife, trees, alligators, birds etc. And had a ton of fun being a kid again! I felt safe in the hands of my guides and I would do this again in a heart beat!

Alan has a perfect balance of interesting facts about the local sights with a fun attitude. He is a thoughtful guide that looks after your safety but makes sure you have a fun experience. He will not disappoint you in whatever adventure he guides you on! We did paddle boarding with him & a waterfall/nature hike. Love this guy! Patti

These guys know their wildlife, and they truly love it. It was so interesting to hear about the different birds, see a baby croc, see a huge iguana and hear about all the different trees. And what I loved most of all was how excited the tour leaders got every time a new animal appeared. Highly recommend, these guys are... More

I recently experienced a stand up paddle board adventure on the river with them and my team. The staff were friendly and very knowledgable, particularly Alan! Very impressed and plan on returning or teaching SUP Yoga there too!

A friend and I went on the Birdwatching Tour with Alan today and it was simply amazing. He was very knowledgeable and clearly happy to be our guide and we first kiyaked then hiked a bit to birdwatch. It is worth it to get up early and take this tour at 6 am. If you are a bird watcher or... More

We had such a beautiful, memorable, phenomenal experience! I came to Nosara to teach at a yoga retreat and knew I wanted to lead a SUP Yoga session. Cherie and Alan made it happen! Cherie's communications are solid. So helpful and prompt responses via email. Alan (Rio) was the dream guide. Patient, friendly, experienced and he has eagle eyes! No... More

My family of 8 went kayaking with Jose and loved it! Jose is extremely knowledgeable about the area and the ecosystem. I teach environmental science and had so many great stories from him to share with my students. The best part of our tour was docking the kayaks and following Jose on a trail that led us to a completely... More

We had seven people in our party, most of whom had never done SUP before. Alan was really an excellent instructor and accommodating guide. Paddling up the river was a truly enjoyable experience, with Alan's expert knowledge of the local birds and the diverse fauna of the mangrove swamp. He is personable, speaks excellent English, and is obviously passionate about... More

Our family vacation is now one great memory. Much of this is because of Cherie and the staff at Experience Nosara Adventures. We are a family of 8: my wife and I, her mother, and our 5 kids ages 16-25. We made the most of our vacation in Guiones with three tours with this company: Morning birdwatching hike and kayak-...
