A must do tour for those interested in eco tourism. The Kayak tour through the mangroves is beautiful. We observed Ibis and egret, monkeys , lizard and even a small Caimen. Rachel and Nago are great hosts. They are very knowledgeable and friendly and make the trip very comfortable.

Went on a group tour of the mangroves--so much fun. Rachel and Nego split out group up into two and each took half for the tour. I was in Nego's group and he was a great scout, pointing out the flora and fauna. We saw beautiful birds and of course, the Jesus Christ lizard which ran on water! So much fun, at the end Rachel and Nego prepare a fruit spread to enjoy on the beach :)

One of my favorite memories from our trip to CR--just remember wear lots of sunblock, this was the day we all got burt! It's nice to splash water on your legs during the tour but it does wash the sunblock away!!

Thank you Rachel and Nego! I had the best time kayaking!! The Mangroves were peaceful and beautiful. The tour is not strenuous and pretty mellow. Definitely a fun time to spend with friends/family. Make sure you wear sunblock or you'll burn. At the end of the tour, we had the most amazing and delicious fruit spread! YUM! Rachel also set up a bunch of other Dominical activities for our BIG group and made sure all reservations were confirmed and we were taken care of. If you want an unforgettable time in Costa Rica and wonderful customer service, I highly recommend Pineapple Kayak Tours.

We had a great experience. Rachel and Nego (great couple) were very endearing people. They made the tour enjoyable even for those of our group that were busy being mesmorized by the things around them. Both had lots of knowledge about the environments to which we paddled through. It made things very enjoyable/fun. At the end of our tour they provided a light snack which was some very enjoyable pineapple, mango, and papaya (locally grown I suspect), which was delicious. We could not be any happier with the level of service and expertise provided by this dynamic team. It was very nice to connect to them and even get to know them well beyond the tour guides they were.
We were greatful to them for our tour and the fact that my wife told me, Rachel helped set up our horseback ridding tour as well. Thank you Rachel!!
We will definitely recommend you guys to anyone traveling your way and esp for the tour.

Thanks again!!

You can't go wrong with this one! Rachel and Nego took our group of 13 with ease and their knowledge of the mangroves was exceptional. We all really learned a lot about the ecosystems and wildlife while lazily paddling and soaking it all in. The cool thing about kayaking in this area is you can really get close to the wildlife for some amazing encounters and photo opportunities. The natural beauty of the area needs to be seen up close to truly appreciate and in my opinion there is no better way to experience the mangroves than with Pineapple Kayak Tours.
