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)

I was born in Costa Rica, but am part French and was raised in Golfito. I have always been an adventurer, from skateboarding to hiking in the jungle. I went to school to become a licensed guide in Costa Rica, where I learned about all its animals and wildlife. I have a passion for sharing my love of the wilderness, and look forward to sharing my experiences with you.

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.

El lugar es mágico, ahí uno se olvida del estrés diario; es como hacer una pausa y limpiar el espíritu. Las aguas son tranquilas y se pueden observar garzas tigre, Martínes pescadores, ibiz blancos, reinitas amarillas, gallaretas, monos cara blanca, cangrejos, osos hormigueros y otro montón de especies más.
