We booked this kayak trip by phone from the States, explaining that my wife had back surgery recently, and could not paddle. Would it be possible for her to go with a guide in a 2 person kayak? Nothing was too much trouble, and in the event both my wife and I had a remarkable experience on the river among... More

Fantastic early morning trip guided by Norbert. It's a super relaxing way to get close to the wildlife and truly appreciate the beauty of the Mangrove river area. There's even a beach breakfast of fruits thrown in as an extra treat. We highly recommend this tour and loved hearing about the area and Costa RIca from Norbert as we drifted... More

On our tour was my wife and another couple. Norbert was our tour guide and was wonderful. He not only made sure we had a positive experience actually kayaking but his knowledge of the area and country was impressive. The tour was well-planned and went off without any glitches. The coconut water and fresh pineapple snack added to the experience.... More

Very much enjoyed 2 hour kayak trip on Rio Montana. Our guide Ernesto was very friendly and knowledgeable. Alas, no crocodile sighting, but really enjoyed the mid-trip deserted beach stop with ice cold pineapple and coconut juice. If you are looking for a relaxing, easy paddle, this is it.

This was our second time doing the Experience Nosara SUP tour and once again, it was fantastic. We had a group of 14 ranging in age from 9-50 years old. Jose and Steven were our guides and they showed us a great time. We rode up the river, stopped at the beach for coconut water, watermelon, and pineapple, all the... More

Eight of us did the two hour kayak tour and had a fabulous trip with Rio. We saw crocodiles, lots of birds, monkeys, and lizards. Most of this we wouldn't have seen without his sharp eyes. We had a little break for cocos y pinas and a swim in the Pacific. It was heartening to hear how much he loves... More

Arrived in Nosara two days ago. Our first family adventure (husband, wife, 14 YO and 17 YO) was a SUP trip up the Nosara River. Our guide, Hobart, took great care giving Bob tips on how to SUP as he hadn't done so before. We all got off to a great start, and along the way learned about the ecosystem,... More

Rio is the best! He took my group (with Pivot Journeys) on two excursions. One was hiking to a waterfall. I had a little trouble climbing up the rocks, and he grabbed my arm to lift me up! The other was a kayaking and paddle boarding trip. Both were awesome! Rio's knowledge and appreciation of nature and the local environment... More

This was the best kayaking experience I have ever had!! Rio was a great guide. He made our experience so memorable . You can tell he loves his job and where he lives. I highly recommend taking a Nosara Adventures Tour and cross your fingers that you get Rio as your guide ! Pura Vida !!
