In March 2009 we took a four-day kayaking tour of Golfo Dulce, and there’s no doubt we got our money’s worth. (Actually, a lot more, considering the rather low price Aventuras Tropicales charges.) The logistics were flawless, the equipment was first rate, the food better than anything I eat back home.
I’m writing this review, though, because we got something out of the trip that no amount of money could ever buy: The privilege of being guided into and around the world of Alberto and Adriana Robleto.
Paddling alongside this father-daughter duo, I felt like an honored guest in their backyard. (A backyard, it should be pointed out, that’s filled with dolphins, scarlet macaws and sunsets so obscenely beautiful that only cliches could do them justice.) Alberto and Adriana are good people, good Costa Ricans… and not so incidentally, damn good tour guides.
My son is just a baby now, but as soon as he’s old enough to paddle, I plan on returning to Golfo Dulce to introduce him to the Robletos. He’ll be a better man for it.
