I took the Savegre river mangroves tour in August. The Savegre River is a Unesco world heritage biopshere site and it is wild and beautiful. the tour was led by a wonderful guide named Victor, and the owner of the company watched the cars so everything was safe. I was on a stand up paddleboard and the water was deep enough the whole way. We paddled slowly most of the time but I was also able to go fast if I wanted to. There was nothing scarey and the guide answered all my questions. We also spent a little time where the river meets the beach, to see the untouched pristine beach and the turbulence where the river comes into the sea. When my friends come to visit me in Costa Rica I will take them on this tour because I know it will uplift them and give them a great view of this kind of Costa Rican nature. I have taken Pineapple tours before and they are my first choice.

I absolutely loved this trip from start to finish. The organizers and guides are superb, super friendly, highly knowledgeable, and it was a real pleasure to be around and share their passion for the mangrove system. At high tide, in the afternoon, the wildlife is not at its fullest, but I was delighted seeing two, two toed sloths, many Jesus Lizards, and an abundance of birds, including a pair of beautiful falcons. And lasting over 4 hours, including travel and some sloth stops, this tour is excellent value. The mangroves themselves and simply serene and stunning. Thank you Rachel, Nego and Victor.

Again, Pineapple Tours is the place visit while in Dominical. This is my third visit in the last 4 years. Always try a new experience while visiting in Dominical. The crew at Pineapple are just great, from the owners Rachel and Nego, in the office with Brian and on a tour with Victor and the rest of the crew.

From start to finish we were super happy with this company. They were very responsive to emails, easy to reserve, and when we came for the tour, we were welcomed right away. The tour to the mangroves was amazing. We had a big group, but they split the groups so there was only 5 people in our group with our guide, Nego. He was the highlight of our trip. He had so much knowledge and information and taught us so much about the mangroves and what an incredible place it is. I would definitely do this tour again if I go back to Costa Rica. On the tour we saw 3 sloths on the way to the tour, in the mangroves we saw monkeys, a boa, lots of herons, kingfishers, a hawk attacking a heron, some Jesus lizards and some bats. Besides the wildlife, we learned so much and the views were amazing. After the tour, I sat with the woman at the office for at least 45 minutes, where she vividly described tons of other activities to do in the area. She knew about every tour company and helped me set up the rest of my 5 days in Dominical. Dominical was my favorite part of this trip and I would definitely go back again and use this company again.
