Description

Explore The Hidden Mangrove Forests. Paddle through the smooth inland waterways of the Damas Island Estuary, one of the most unusual types of vegetation on the planet, and learn the importance of this delicate ecosystem.

Trip Itinerary

Mangroves thrive where the salt waters of the ocean meet the fresh waters of tropical rivers creating a periodically submerged forest of interlacing aerial roots. You will be given paddling instructions at the beginning of the tour.

Your bilingual guide will show you the wealth of animal and bird life that lives in this unique habitat, such as mangrove wrens, swallows and an abundance of shore birds.

On the banks of the estuary, you’ll see the main protagonists of the mangrove ecosystem; the Sally light foot crab, as well as boa constrictors tangled in the aerial roots, silky anteaters and monkeys in the upper branches and crocodiles slipping in and out of the water.

Transportation from and to your hotel in the Manuel Antonio / Quepos area; specialized gear for the activity (sea kayaks, paddles, PFD’s); snack during the tour, professional & bilingual guide.

Not Included:

Transportation from any location outside the Manuel Antonio / Quepos area; video and photography service, gratuities for guides.

Mangrove kayak tour

Our family of 6 did a kayak tour through the mangrove with this company. We really loved the experience. Top class professional tour. Cristian our tour guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and flexible. We had booked for the sea tour but changed our minds at the last minute to do the mangrove tour and Cristian was fully accommodating of this. He displayed great knowledge of the mangrove ecosystem and we enjoyed learning all about it as we wound our way through the narrow but very calm and peaceful mangrove ecosystem. Beginner kayakers will find this an ideal way to learn kayaking, and even experienced kayakers will enjoy the very different terrain and narrow clogged waterways that are on offer in the mangrove forest. A great day out and a great guide.

Best Company In Costa Rica

My wife and I are in our 40’s and this was our first white water rafting trip. We were a bit nervous and unsure about the level of rapids that would be appropriate for beginners. H2O Adventures assured us the trip would be good for beginners. Luis was our guide and he was amazing. He went over safety instruction and expectations before getting into the raft. We set out on our trip and didn’t stop smiling for the entire time. During our time on the river Luis was clear with his direction and made us feel safe and well taken care of. What a fun, exciting way to see a very beautiful area of Costa Rica. Thank you to everyone at H2O Adventures for taking such great care of us and all of the terrific information on your country. Don’t forget to bring extra money for the photos afterwards that were great and so worth buying.

Naranjo river rafting

We went on the Naranjo rafting trip (not the Chorro section). They picked us up at our hotel and took us to the office in Quepos before heading to the river. On the short walk down to the river, our guide showed us some of the native plants like vanilla, ginger, bamboo etc. He even picked some fresh lychee from a tree for us to eat. We got a safety lesson and we were off. I managed to fall in (a rare thing and just dumb on my part) but before my head even popped out of the water our guide had his paddle for me to grab and he pulled me back in the raft in what had to be less than 30 seconds. The whole trip was amazing and definitely recommended.
