By luck, we came across Pineapple Tours because our original itinerary got double-booked. Carlos, a friend we had met early during our trip, recommended we try kayaking instead and called his friend Nego to set us up. When we arrived, everyone was super friendly and their office setting was laid back but beautiful. Our guide, Victor, was very informative and... More

Awesome experience with wonderful guides. We saw sloths, monkeys, a boa, and all kinds of birds and lizards. Our guide Felix was great and a lot of fun. Rachel in the office was very helpful and the whole crew was fantastic. The fruit and pictures were an added bonus!
