  • Mangroves are places where nature grows at their own pace and become part of the same, with Laura or William, is very easy. Depending on the day and time the animals are more or less active to be able to observe. You can see that they love the mangroves and that also have grown up on them. Besides the tour, which is quite complete, finished with an excellent lunch of homemade tica food. A 10

  • We had a fantastic time on this tour! William is very knowledgeable and hospitable. The ride was very peaceful. Saw several monkeys and snakes. It was a beautiful tour and the meal afterwards was delicious. Definitely recommend. Bring a towel, you will get a little wet in the kayak.
  • We joined William and his team for their Mangrove Tour, which was a great experience. If you like to spend a relaxing afternoon kayaking along a quiet river through mangroves, learning some interesting things about Costa Rica´s nature and spotting some cool animals this is the right tour for you. If you don´t like kayaking, there is also the option to take a seat on a bigger boat in order to experience the same without paddling :) William picked us up from our accomodation on time with a comfortable new minivan, which was very convenient. After around 20 minutes of driving we arrived at his home, where his familiy prepared a very delicous meal for everyone, which was included in the tour. After that we were able to choose if we want to do the tour via kayak or boat, we chose the double kayak. While paddling along the river we stopped regulary, so that William was able to explain something about the history of his familiy, the region around his home, the river, Costa Rica and the animals we spotted. We were able to see white-faced monkeys, different kind of crabs, a sleeping anteater on a tree, very cut bats hanging on a tree and several species of birds. There were also different kinds of mangroves along the river, as we learned through Williams. After around 2 hours of paddling we got back to Williams home, where we started. There we had another nice talk with William and his familiy, before we got transfered back to our accomodation. We think this is a great way to spend a relaxing and informative afternoon and can recommend this tour to everyone including families with children.
