Great kayaking experience on Nosara river. Plenty of wildlife to spot while paddling the river. Knowledgable and friendly guide. Tandem kayaks are available. Guide brings water, coconuts and pineapple to enjoy on Nosara beach - nice break from paddling. See birds, monkeys, crabs, spiders and more! Excellent adventure! Alan is phenomenal!

On our first day in Nosara, we had the waterfall hike with Allen. Allen and Steve provided a great and informative tour of the area. We enjoyed listening to Allen and appreciated his concern of providing an excellent tour for us. We were so impressed, we signed up for a second tour with Allen to see a true working coffee... More

Had a very good paddleboard tour up the river. A very easy tour, no problem for a couple of people in our party that have never SUP'd before. Steven was a great guide, very knowledgeable about the plants and birds. You could tell that he loved the river. Highly recommended. We stopped at the beautiful Nosara beach and had refreshments....

We went on the kayak river tour and were extremely happy with Allen's professionalism and the knowledge of his staff. The tour takes you on two different rives and we were able to see multiple kinds of Herons, Egrets, Flycatchers, Kingfishers, and more that I cannot remember. Our guide, Stephen, was very passionate and enthusiastic about the birds and rivers... More

We were supposed to SUP last week but couldn't due to ocean conditions. We did get to snorkel however. Allan & Chito picked us up, drove us out to our boat and could not have been more delightful. They did the best they could with the ocean conditions and we had a nice morning out on the water. They even... More

We went with another family with teens... Alan & Ernesto, our guides, were exceptionally knowledgeable about the wildlife. We paddled through the mangroves about a mile and then took a break to jump in the waves on the black sand beach. We were served fresh cut pineapple and watermelon and were given time to cool off. Then we began our... More

Loved paddle boarding with a group of kayakers up the river, learning about the birds and crocs and spiders and trees, and eating fresh pineapple and watermelon. Great guides and relaxing atmosphere. Much easier to do than I expected with lots of support if needed.

Alan is the coolest guy I met during my time here in Nosara. Snorkeling was awesome and Alan was just the nicest guy. He knew a lot about the different fish and the area in general. Would 100% recommend to anyone.

My husband and I stayed in Nosara and hired Alan to show us around his area. He is very knowledgable about everything he does, loves nature and his history and his heritage. He shows you experiences from the locals point of view so it is a very cultural experience. I highly recommend Alan and his team at Experience Nosara
