This was a very reasonably priced tour and I loved how friendly and helpful our guides were. I appreciated the provided waterproof bags and hats to use. The tour was very pleasant and relaxing. Victor took us through the mangroves and helped educate us about the area, the trees and animal life. We saw beautiful birds, monkeys, a snake and... More

It was wonderful 1/2 day adventure that was relaxing, informative,and coupled with some good upper body excercise. We had a wonderful group of people from various parts of the globe and our tour guide was exceptional. He shared his knowledge of the mangroves, wildlife, ecosystem, and tid bits of Costa Rica with enthusiasm. We stopped at a couple sites enroute... More

Wow! What a great review! Thank you for your comments! I'm so glad we took you by surprise. But we really have to give credit to this amazing ecosystem, the mangroves. That place, what some consider just a marsh land swamp, is full of nature, beauty, wildlife, education and amazement. Thank you for taking the time to comment and hope... More

From start to finish, this was a great tour. Our guide, Victor, was knowledgable, personable and patient. We stopped on our way to the river to view and learn about sloths. Once at the river he was very thorough in his explanations, especially for first time SUPers. On this peaceful river tour, we learned about the symbiotic relationships of the... More

We did the kayak tour in the ventanas caves. The landscapes and the sounds of the sea in the caves is something to don't forget. We love it. It's safe and thrilling. Also the people of Pineapple Tours are like good friends. We highly recommend it!

The owner Rachel and tour guide Victor were very nice and earnest. Victor stopped the truck on the way so we could see our first sloths, clearly a tourist pleaser. The mangroves had a variety of plant life. I saw a Caiman alligator but missed out on my elusive snakes.

Pineapple Tours was kind enough to set up a whale watching tour for us through Tiki Tours (not on Trip Advisor). Because we were with an environmental group called Global Water Stewardship, they so kindly offered us a discount and we were in for a fantastic experience! Tiki Tours met us at the entrance to the beach in Bahia Ballena... More

Calm river. Rachel and Nego made the booking extremely easy. Nego had some great insight into the area and how it has changed over the years! Saw some animals and finished at the ocean. Can't wait to come back!
