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 !!

Although i am experienced east coast (USA) surfer, one year SUP surf convert, and repeat visitor to Playa Guiones, I still thought it wise to go for some one on one coaching with a local professional guide. This proved to be one of the best decisions I have made. Alan met me at the beach with a 2 boards for... More

Where do you start? The gorgeous scenery? The multitude of bird species? The most beautiful and private beach you've ever seen? No. I'll start with our tor guide who was extremely knowledgeable about the local Nosara birds, animals and various other species of creatures. Simply put...the best tour you will ever experience because of the people. The kayaking is beautiful... More

Alan (Rio) gave us an extraordinary experience seeing crocodile, numerous birds, spiders, crabs, ctenosaur (lizard) and the beauty of the red mangrove swamp on the Rio Montana near Nosara. We arranged a custom tour, we left early for best light and birdwatching. We had a mid-tour stop at the black sand beach with pineapple, coconut and homemade cookies! And we... More

We went on the waterfall tour with Alan (~2-3 hours) which we thoroughly enjoyed! His vast local knowledge and love of nature made this tour a wonderful experience. He knew about everything we came across (from the vast array of plants to the various birds and animals we saw) which made the tour fun and interesting. And the waterfall was... More
