Kayak in the jungle with an adventurer

Quepos, Costa Rica

Experience hosted by Alex

  1. 2.5 hours
  2. Hosted in English, Spanish, and French

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 4 or 4:30pm 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. A full night tour can be done by request.

If a larger group or family wishes to book a private tour please send me a request and I will try to accommodate.

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)

Nací en Costa Rica, pero soy francés y crecí en Golfito. Siempre he sido un aventurero, desde el skate hasta el senderismo en la jungla. Fui a la escuela para convertirme en un guía autorizado en Costa Rica, donde aprendí sobre todos sus animales y vida silvestre. Me apasiona compartir mi amor por la naturaleza y espero compartir mis experiencias con usted.

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.

    Hacer kayak en el medio de los manglares permite conectar de una manera maravillosa con la naturaleza. Alex es un chico muy amable y empeñado en explicar lo que se está viendo y en que la gente pase un muy buen momento. Sin duda una actividad que volveríamos a repetir.

    I loved this experience. The location was super unique and interesting. I especially liked going in the evening and seeing the bats at night. I highly recommend this tour with Alex.

    Definitely a unique kayaking experience navigating through narrow paths in the mangroves! Alex was very informative and you could tell he’s passionate about that ecosystem. Bring your eco-friendly bug repellent
