Fun!
We loved kayaking with this company!! We went with Lisandro, and his friend (sorry, we don’t remember his name!!). We had a good time kayaking the coast and playing at the beach. Afterwards we had a delicious lunch which was included. We did have some confusion booking the tour, it sounded like they accidentally double booked so we had to go at a different time than planned. It ended up being okay and we had fun regardless of the mix up.

We had a great time with Cesar! He was very friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and kept up with us as we kayaked across the ocean. He also knew where we could snorkel to get the best views. He encouraged us to explore the beach where we landed and was extremely good at maneuvering us back to the rocky shore as we returned. Pedro, the driver was also extremely friendly, showed us some flora we had not seen and explained more about Costa Rica as he shuttled us from the hotel to the beach.

Amazing Tour and Guide
My fiancé and I did the kayak and snorkeling tour with this company. Our driver’s name was Pedro and our guide was Cesar. Pedro was very knowledgeable about the area. He named restaurants and other activities for us to do afterwards. While out on the water with Cesar, he was able to bring us to the best spots to snorkel and see fish which made the experience even better. We overall had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend this excursion company.

Great way to spend an afternoon
Feb 2020
We had so much fun on our trip. We were on our honeymoon and were looking to get out and go on a bit of adventure and this trip definitely scratched that itch. The kayaking was the perfect challenge level for us, just enough to break a sweat and get a light workout in but not too strenuous. The views from the ocean were stunning, and gave a really unique perspective not viewable from the beach alone. Our guide, Ceasar (aka Aquaman) was super friendly and made the trip that much more fun. He was very knowledgeable and had a contagious enthusiasm. We also really liked our driver nicknamed 'Plastico'. After spending alot of the time eating at the hotel, the home-cooked meal we had was a great change of pace for us. Overall would really recommend.

Kayaking in the Mangroves
Jan 2020
The early morning kayaking adventure was great! Our guide, Cesar Roman, was knowledgeable and friendly, pointing out many plants and animals we wouldn't have seen without him. I'm an experienced kayaker and the trip worked well for me. It also worked well for many people in the group who have never paddled before.

Wonderful Kayak & Snorkeling adventure in November
Nov 2019
We went during the last week or so of the rainy/off season and ended up with a private tour with Brian. We expected to be put in a group with other people so that was a nice surprise!

Kayaking requires a bit of stamina so we were definitely a bit tired by the end, but it was still very manageable. The hardest part was just coordinating to steer a 2-person kayak since it was our first time having a 2-person kayak.

Brian pointed out lots of little beaches and gave us interesting info about them. That also allowed for a few breaks on the journey to the snorkeling spot.

We stopped near a volcanic rock to snorkel. There were a lot of blue and yellow fish swimming around us so that was cool. Brian found a starfish (pictured) and let us hold it before he put it back where he found it.

Brian is also a hero! As I was getting back into the kayak, my camera got caught on the edge and it snapped the camera strap, sending it down into the water. Brian managed to find it even though it was at the bottom and the water was very cloudy!

We stopped at a beach after snorkeling and ate some delicious pineapple and explored the beach. You can also swim there.

After that, we headed back to the kayaks, back to where we started, and cleaned up to go to the office where we had what was honestly one of the best meals while we were in Costa Rica! They accommodated me with a vegetarian casado.

Kayaking and Snorkelling
We did a morning kayaking and snorkelling tour with César and had a great time.

We were picked up on time and made our way to a very pretty bay where we got in our kayaks and paddled 30-45 mins to a snorkel spot. The water was pretty murky but We still saw loads of colourful fish. We continued a short paddle to a beautiful beach and parked up for a fruit snack. There was no rush and César was happy to wander round the beach with us pointing out wildlife.

Once we were ready to leave we took a slow paddle back admiring the lovely
Coastline.

Once on dry land we were driven about 15 mins to their main base where we had a delicious lunch prepared fresh by the chefs on site.

Overall, a fun trip with a happy, fun guide.
