          Get mangrove tour with Tocanes and Jeremy
          We really enjoyed the boat ride. Jeremy was our guide and he made it terrific. We have been on a mangrove tour in the Galapagos and learned a lot more from Jeremy. He expertly explained the ecosystem and identified a variety of birds. However this particular time of year is not the best for birding since a lot of the migratory birds have already left. The boat captain spotted several iguanas and a rarely seen Pygmy Anteater, the smallest one in the world. It’s amaziNguyen that he found him since he only weights 1 lb.

          A must for Manuel Antonio!
          SUCH A FUN EXPERIENCE! Our tour guide, Warner, was an excellent guide! He knew so much about the park and was able to show us so many different animals that we would not have seen without him. If you’re going to Manuel Antonio, I would 100% recommend going with this tour company. We saw sloths, monkeys, different birds (parrots), and an anteater all thanks to our tour guide! They also offer breakfast and lunch with the tour. Very pleased!

          Great adventura
          Very well organised from pick up to drop off. They drove us through a palm plantation and then up the hills along the Savegre river. The guides and the driver were really good and we had a great time. Everyone was passionate about their job and really made our day. It was the end of the dry season, so the rapids we more class 2, and they told us at the very beginning. In any case, it was our first rafting experience and we enjoyed it. Swimming in the river and jumping in was also fun. One of the guides follows with a kayak and takes pictures which we bought separately at the end. We then had lunch at their restaurant, which is on the main Costa Rica coastal highway. We could also change into dry clothes there. Food was OK and much appreciated after an adventurous day.

          Hugo was absolutely amazing and we were so glad to have chosen this trip, The stables and surroundings are charming and the ride up to the waterfall was a blast. For all levels of riders. Definitely put on your list as a must do while in the Manuel Antonio area. Thank you, Hugo!!!

          A great day!
          Manuel Antonio National Park was great, but without our guide Sylvia, it would not have been near as memorable! She was phenomenal! She was extremely knowledgeable about everything in the park and made a point to engage the entire group! We saw many more animals than we expected and closer than expected, thanks to Sylvia's scope. Definitely a must do!

          GO RAFTING in Costa Rica!!
          Our rafting trip on the Naranjo River was AMAZING! Our guide Orlando and our safety kayaker Erick were the best. They were super knowledgeable and friendly. It was just my partner and I on the trip and it was so fun. My partner is a raft guide and they treated him as one of their own! We enjoyed the trip and would highly recommend it if you want to go rafting in Costa Rica. We saw lots of wildlife and the whole operation was smooth and easy.

          Incredible guided tour of Manuel Antonio National Park
          We had a fabulous tour led by Brenda, an amazing naturalist! Brenda had an incredible way of picking out animals that you could never see in plain sight, grabbing them quickly in her telescopic lens, and making it easy for us to see them close up even though if they were high up in the trees. She also had an uncanny way of being able to obtain pictures on our phone through the scope for us to bring home. She provided tons of information, and taught us about the history of Manuel Antonio National Park, the beaches, and about birds, plants, trees, and animals. She engaged our two young sons, and the tour was incredibly informative and it was super special having her lead us there. We end of the day at Manuel Antonio Beach, which is an amazing place to catch a wave! Highly recommend this tour if you want information that you cannot otherwise know and to see animals you might not otherwise spot just from going to the National Park by yourself.

          Tucanes is a full service tour company and their park experience is top notch.
          We actually booked all of our Manuel Antonio activities with Tucanes. Melissa was key in helping us fit in everything that we wanted to do. We enjoyed surfing, the park tour, kayaking, and the crocodile tour. We did not rent a car, so having transportation lined up for each of the activities was helpful. Our guides were knowledgable and able to conduct tours and lessons in Spanish and English. I have already recommended our itinerary and Tucanes to our friends at home! The whitewater rafting really is season dependent - be sure to ask what level the water is likely to be during your trip.

          Most exciting was the squirrel monkey! Having a guide ensures you see things you would not notice otherwise.
          Our guide was fantastic and we saw some interesting things. The park is crowded and it was very hot. At the end we had to choose between staying in the park longer or enjoying the provided snacks and transportation back. We chose to stay in the park, but I think if I had to do it over, I would have returned with the group.

          Eli our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour interesting and enjoyable. He and our driver made stops for the group that were interesting and fun . A once in a lifetime visit to the park and share numerous photos with friends and family . A tour to experience.

          Beautiful day of kayaking and snorkeling in Manuel Antonio!
          We kayaked and snorkeled with Warner at Tucanes Tours and it was awesome! Warner was knowledgeable, entertaining and fun. We had beautiful blue skies and the water was smooth. Snorkeling was very relaxing, although water was a little murky. All in all, another perfect day of "pura vida!"

          Magic in the Mangroves
          Videos and research didn't quite prepare me for the actual experience of floating through these incredible expressions of strength, resilience, beauty, and pura vida. The road there freaked me the eff out but being greeted by Gustavo and welcomed into his home with his mom, Mary, and dad, William (who runs the boat tours). We got equipped with lifejackets, settled any remaining balances and placed orders for our homemade lunch (yes and it's fabulous) and ushered to the kayaks. Took a tandem with my daughter and we marveled at all that the mangrove offered - from tiger herons to the mangroves themselves - which were navigated one kayak by one kayak and watching my big girl move through a real-life Pandora -- priceless and magical. After the two-hour tour which involved our guide, Gustavo, hanging back for a bit to talk us through what we were seeing or hearing... and sometimes couldn't see like how this ecosystem has protected itself and the land the way it has... the dinner (we had it closer to 5) was magnificent. Yes, another casado. But an excellent one at that. If you got fidgety folks or don't like to get dirty or risk getting wet, take the boat tour. Also there are no croccodiles - do don't fear or don't expect them here. But do it. This is a beautiful fam of guides. Pura vida!

          If you are interested in birds,Carara NP is a must.
          On 26 March we had a guided tour of Carara National Park with Beto Rojas. It was an excellent tour and Beto was very attentive and knowledgeable about the NP and the wildlife that resides there. We were blown away by the birds Beto found. He took time to explain about the life and habits of the wildlife, including the history of the NP. Thank you for spending time with us. A big thanks too to Marlon our driver. Our tour included lunch at a local restaurant, which was superb. If you want a less crowded location, this the place.

        Very nice float trip. Our guides were friendly, helpful and informative. Only caveat was low water made the trip pretty tame. Visited in mid January, beginning if dry season.

        This trip was amazing well worth the money. Our pick up team George and Mono were great. They were followed by more great guides. Orlando was personable and an expert in rafting. He made our trip smooth and fun even with our kids 13 &14. They were knowledgeable about animals, plants and the river. We were beyond happy with the experience they all provided and it's a locally owned business. This is a great trip to take for the whole family. Best river rafting in Costa Rica.

        Orlando, Miguel and Antonio are amazing guides and hosts. Mario top! We learned so much about the countryside on the ride up and had an absolute blast on the river. Food was amazing- definitely worth doing. The views are breathtaking and the river is fun and safe- at least when the water is low.

        From pick up to drop off everything was great. We had a four person raft for the two of us and Marcos our guide. Jonathan was the safety and line spotter in a forward kayak. The drive up to the put in was a one hour trip with lots to see in the jungle. Marcos lives up the road so he said hello to many friends. We were given a good safety lesson and put in easily. We quickly hit Class 3 water and continued to enjoy many rapids for almost two hours, stopping for a short walk to a large waterfall. Marcos gave us clear instructions when to paddle and made the trip fun and very wet! They gave us fruit after, then the ride back to the office and a tasty casado lunch. The weather was wonderful. I would do this again! Definitely take extra dry clothes for after. You will be soaked.

        Booked a trip through Costa Rica Holiday Rentals for a 7 AM pick-up......waited until 7:30 and called....no answer....... 8 AM security at our condo found the manager's phone #......apparently our p/u was missed......no call or e-mail. Offered us a 1/2 day tour for same price........then $55 off of a $380 total. Opted for a full refund instead.

        Justin was our guide on the raft and we had a marvelous time. The staff provided a nice breakfast before our trip to the beginning of the raft trip, a snack of fruit and juice at the conclusion and a great lunch after the trip back. I will say the hot lunch of chicken and rice prepared in such a way exceeded expectations.

        The river was low and so the rapids for the most part were class 1.5 to class 2.5. A description would not be complete without mentioning the beauty and the lush vegetation and ecosystem surrounding the river. However, it was white water most of the way. In the first third of the trip, there was an area where we were encouraged to jump in the water and swim with the current. The water was extremely comfortable. Near the end, there was a quarter mile walk to a great waterfall. On a 90 degree day, it was great to put your head under waterfall.

        I will add it would be a difficult trip without water shoes. Water shoes are also helpful for the 200 yard or so walk at the conclusion of the raft trip to the truck.

        Also, on a trip like this DON'T FORGET SUN SCREEN.

        Staff worked hard and I recommend the trip. Full disclosure on travel: 75 minutes from our hotel in Los Suenos to the "meeting place near Quopos; 1:45 to the raft site; a 10 KM raft ride, then an hour from the end of the raft site to the "meeting place" (breakfast and lunch) and the back to Los Suenos.

        Again, for us the trip was great and I recommend it.

        The river was fun with Class 11 and 111 rapids. Nicolas was a funny and knowledgeable tour guide. I enjoyed the ride from the restaurant to the start of the white water rafting through the jungle and various small villages.

        The transportation to and from Jaco was a disaster. We were picked up 45 minutes late and they didn’t seem to have or understand the location that I had provided in advanced. On the way home, I think they wanted us to wait another 45 minutes or so until another group returned so we could carpool. Since we had people in our group that needed to go to the airport, they hired us a different driver so we could leave immediately.
