Tours & Activities
Manuel Antonio Park Guided Tour
What can we say about someone experiencing Costa Rica’s number one visitors’ spot for the first time with The Manuel Antonio Specialist – at Manuel Antonio National Park. It’s just like experiencing Costa Rica for the first time absolutely unforgettable. Take a leisurely stroll or an intense hike (it’s your choice, since it’s your tour) with a highly trained, well-educated Costa Rican naturalist guide through our exotic, bio-diverse tropical rain forest preserved for more than 40 years, our treasure, Manuel Antonio National Park. The pace of this adventure is determined by your group’s abilities and interests, and the abundance of wildlife you want to stop and observe (or learn about) – all in its natural and breathtaking habitat. Watch sloths and numerous species of monkeys travel through the tree canopy, hunt for nocturnal silky anteaters and several types of non-poisonous snakes resting in the tropical rain forest, and listen to the songs of the various birds as they glide above your group, curiously looking for adventure. See how many different kinds of flora and fauna you can spot just in the span of a 2 ½ hour nature walk or hike.
Easy walk or hike, depending upon your abilities and self-paced tour. You might want to bring water, a camera, sunscreen, bug spray, and your binoculars while you hike in the Park, and if you so desire bring your bathing suit and towel for a relaxing beach time during the tour. “Childrens under 5 years old are free”
Includes: Bilingual and certified naturalists guide and entrance fee.
Damas Island Mangrove Tour Kayak or Boat
Don't pass up the opportunity to see one of the most amazing and important ecological systems of the planet at work right here at the Damas Island Mangrove Tour. A bilingual guide will take you through the lush mangrove in search of wild animals, birds and much more. You will experience first-hand the importance of such a unique ecological resource and find out how these amazing fo-rests contribute to the formation of islands and coastline.
Excellent for adventurous individuals, families or groups of any age who want to learn and experience nature first hand – but children under age 10 might have to paddle in a double kayak with an adult. In the boat all the family can come.
We recommend that you are relatively physically fit for paddling in an open-seat kayak for a few hours, and please wear comfortable clothing and water shoes that might get wet, sun block lotion, towel, camera, bug spray and a hat. Single or Double Open-Seat Kayaks Available.

Naranjo River (III— IV)
For more experienced rafters, the Naranjo River runs from April to December and is a consistently adrenaline-pumping Class III and IV wild ride.
The wild and ever-changing Naranjo River White Water Rafting challenge is recommended for physically fit adventure seekers and experienced rafters who are familiar with Class III and IV rapids.
On this high-octane, half-day adventure, the trip begins when the Naranjo River drops steeply from the Costa Ri-can mountains and charges though pristine jungle gorges, then winds around rocky curves to take you on a wild, adventurous ride back to sea level waters. While your internationally trained, bilingual guides and safety kayakers work with you to navigate this exciting river, you’ll pass by (rapidly) stunning farmland, working cat-tle ranches, and beautiful African Palm Plantations.
Savegre River Rafting (II—III)
Our more family-friendly Savegre River provides Class II, III and some rare IV rapids that are more than manageable. And of course you can expect that our internationally trained, bilingual guides and safety kayakers will ex-pertly coach you through navigating either river.
This adventurous, family-friendly, full-day trip is a unique white water river rafting adventure with lots of “perks”.
