What you'll do

I will be taking you to a private dock in the middle of the mangrove jungle, where we will launch our kayaks. I will guide and help you the whole way as well as take pictures for you to keep as memories. I will explain about the different mangrove trees and point out any wildlife or other unique parts of the jungle. I will be your guide for the duration to answer any questions you may have. If you get tired I can customize the rests along the way to suit you.

If the tour is at 4pm this is a night and day tour. We will be arriving back in the dark but will have lights and it can be even more magical at night.

This tour has been altered from 15 people max to 5. It will make it more intimate and safer during the Covid pandemic. If a larger group or family wishes to book please send a request as airbnb allows up to 10 people at this time.
Other things to note
You will need to figure out transportation to the mangroves by shuttle, taxi or your car. I can help coordinate the taxi or shuttle for you if needed.
(Taxis and shuttles have additional cost)

Where you'll be

You will see pineapple, white, red, and black mangrove trees along with other beautiful flora. You may also see wildlife, including crabs, bats, monkeys, silky anteaters, iguanas, lizards, herons, and other birds. If you want, I will take you down an iconic route which is very narrow and fun.

We were pretty early that morning and waiting for Alex in front of the kayak lodge. A very polite lady who didn’t speak English warmly welcomed us. During the waiting period she took us into the garden where she showed up a lot of plants like cashew, grapes, oranges, avocados and papayas. It was a pretty cool start into the adventure with Alex. The kayak tour was great. We were a group of only 5 persons including Alex and his friend. For example we saw many birds, crabs, iguanas and bats. Alex explained so many plants and roots to us. Besides it was very impressive to see such a rare location of nature. I highly recommend.

Alex was very knowledgeable and a lovely person. We didn’t see the animals we wanted to, but it really didn’t matter. The magic was Alex and his adorable dog and being in the middle of the mangroves. So peaceful and unique. A must do.

This was a great experience! The views were amazing and Alex’s knowledge of Costa Rica’s nature was top tier. He went above and beyond to ensure that we had a great time.

Beautiful and relaxing kayaking tour! Alex and his friend were great guides for my fiancé and I. Alex tried his best to point out different types of birds throughout the tour as we floated through the Mangroves. At one point he even saved an eel from a fishing line! A true lover of the magical nature we were in.

Very nice and relaxing float through the mangroves. Saw some cool animals but mainly enjoyed the mangroves and environment on a very casual paddle. Would definitely recommend for anyone who wants to see mangroves up close and personal.
