This is a really excellent co.After an admittedly rough ride down to the peninsula for the hiking tour (the captain José did an excellent job) we enjoyed two hikes through the jungle where we saw spider and howler monkeys, two pairs of macaws, sloths, insects, a rare black man kin song bird, vultures, including one guarding her nest, and a...

Corcovado tour - excellent boat ride, saw amazing animals even the elusive tapir, delicious lunch and very welcome cooling off swim in waterfall pool. Cano Island - boat trip was a bit wild as sea/winds were up but so worth it - sharks, rays, turtles then delicious lunch a deserted beach. On both tours Reymer was our guide - unbelievably... More

The whale watching trip started out nice: crew seemed professional, knowledgable and friendly from the start. We did however feel that the we didnt get a lot of value for the 90 USD that the tour cost. Firstly, because we only saw a handful of dolphins throughout the entire trip. Secondly, when we got to 'the' snorkelling spot, we were... More

We did several tours with different tour operators when we stayed in Uvita in January. Bahia Aventuras was by far the nicest and most proffesional company. The guide was full of knowledge of all the different animals, plants and trees. He seemed really intent on giving us the best experience possible and was super helpful and nice. Focus on security...

Impeccably maintained grounds, boats, equipment. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides and captain. Our half-day snorkel trip was fairly priced. They were flexible with rebooking our party when we had a change of plans. This company is on point!

We had an awesome experience! Very professional, fun, knowledgeable! We went out by boat for about 2 1/2 hours. Most of the places we stopped cannot be reached without a boat. We saw a lot of fish and most of all, the crew were great fun! The office staff was very professional as well when setting up our appointment. The... More

We had a great time on the Cano Island snorkel trip! Our guides, Dean & Reymer, were very informative and made the trip fun. We saw lots of fish & a sting ray while snorkeling, and dolphins & whales on the boat ride which was really fun! The highlight of our trip was probably having lunch on a secluded island,... More

It was a great boat ride and Cesar and Raphael were very nice and friendly. We saw a pod of Pantropical spotted dolphins as they were hunting. Many dolphins beaches allowing great photos. The ride was very wet so I recommend bringing extra socks or shoes. Once we got too Corcovado it was HEAVEN. The beaches were absolutely spectacular and... More

I join two naturalistic tours with Bahia Aventuras. Our guide, Alejandro, was really good and also the organization. I went to Corcovado in one day tour; it was very interesting even if I suggest to stay at least one night in the park in order to see more animals and to live the real wild atmosphere of this wonderfoul park....
