Experience Nosara is a great and professional tour company in Nosara, offering a range of tours to suit people through all walks of their lives. Tour groups are small and personal, and guides are amiable and knowledgable. They even deliver you to and from your hotel, a big perk since it's very hard to get around Nosara yourself (roads aren't... More

My 13 year old daughter and I really enjoyed the stand up paddleboarding on the Rio Montana through the mangrove forest with our guide Jose. He was very knowledgable and shared his passion for the fauna and flora . It was an easy paddle in a unique area and I highly recommend experience Nosara. Pura vida Deb

I initially dragged my family along - my husband is an avid surfer and so he was suspicious this would fun, and my three kids (14, 12, 8) generally give me, the mom, a hard time - but they were all singing my praises by the time this tour was over! Hands down our favorite adventure we had together. Alan... More

This was my 3rd year on this trip, each year bringing a group of women from a retreat at Ahki B&B for the Women's Circle. As an option,women chose this adventure to either kayak or stand up paddle. Our guide this year and last was Alan, who was exceptional. He helped those new to SUP who were paddling like pros... More

We took the morning Boca Nosara Wildlife & Birding Kayaking tour. We were picked up at our hotel in Playa Guiones (6:30 AM) and driven to the Lagarta Lodge. Views from up there are amazing. We descended into the mangrove where got a nice little guided walk through the reserve by our Cholutecan guide. He had plenty of natural, cultural... More

Experience Nosara was the highlight of our trip in February 2015! Alan and Jose use their tours to help us feel their love of this area and all it's inhabitants. Joined them for low-impact stand-up paddle, kayaking, hiking along the Nosara and Montana rivers and a very special night tour on the beach to watch the sea turtles laying their... More

We took the SUP tour and could not have been more pleased! Our guides Alan and Jose did a great job leading our group which ranged from first-timers to experienced boarders. We also chose to extend our excursion to include a night time beach trek to watch sea turtles coming ashore to lay their eggs.

Enjoyed our SUP tour of the Mangrove in Nosara. Fun day for all. Easy to navigate and learn. Great way to see a different part of Nosara. Jose did a great job on the tour and later gave us a fantastic tour of the Turtle nesting...right in his backyard! Loved our afternoon with Experience Nosara!!

Alan and jose were so great! I really appreciated the knowledge, respect and care for and about the wildlife in the area! It was a great stand up paddle and kayaking adventure for the entire retreat group, from complete beginners to "experts". Thanks for making it such a great day!
