Attraction details
Owner description: Immerse yourself in indescribable beauty, where nature reveals its flawlessness. In the mangrove tour everything flows harmoniously, the blend of fresh water and salt water, the diversity of the most extraordinary Costa Rica plants and wildlife in all its splendor. Allow us to guide you through our amazing mangrove areas in a boat or a kayak; the most natural way to get to know the nature and avoid heart it. The tide will help us by giving us a little push, while you’re paddling on a kayak the sounds of nature are pure and the breeze coming from the ocean mouth will hit you and make you love this Costa Rican piece of gold.

“Mangrove boat tour”
Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

We did this tour in the late afternoon and had a great time! They schedule the tour time based on the tide. I could tell our guide really loves nature and did a great job explaining the mangrove ecosystem and the Damas island. We saw lots of monkeys, birds, a fer de lance (very poisonous snake), and an incredible sunset! I brought my large camera and got really great pictures! It was fun and relaxing!! We had dinner at the end of the tour at a nearby restaurant that was pretty good, traditional Costa Rican fare. We would do this tour again!

“By Far the Best Monkey Mangrove Tour”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

Diego was an amazing guide. He was very knowledgeable about the area. We saw a handful of different wildlife. It was a very private tour. Monkey came right up to the boat and they ate bananas right out of our hand. Highly recommended. A very awesome experience.

“Relaxing, exciting, and informative.....”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

We had a great experience on this tour. We opted for the boat as we wanted to sit back and relax. Atillio was our guide and he couldn't have been better.
Our captain, who's name is escaping me, was great too.
Learning about Damas Island was cool. I actually saw where the river and the ocean met. It's an actual line in the water. Pretty cool. We saw a rainbow boa, a unique (and poisonous) caterpillar, a 7 foot crocodile, a three foot crocodile (which we got to hold), and of course lots of monkeys. We did not have crowds at all and only saw 2 kayaks and 1 other boat the entire tour.
Lunch afterwards was delicious.
I highly recommend this tour for people of all ages and abilities.
