If spending a couple of hours as close to nature as you can get is on your bucket list, then this trip may be for you. Our guide, Gilbert, led a kayaking group of eight through the Damas Island Mangrove Forest near Quepos, Costa Rica. Monkeys were within arms reach and the picture-taking opportunities were endless. As a guide, Gilbert... More

Totally loved it, had a blast, felt safe and never had doubts in my mind we were going to make it back home safe :). Our guide Roy CC was absolutely great. Always made sure everyone was driving saely, but still made it fun. We had a fabulous time and enjoy the meal very much. Thank you for everything!

Great group of people. Everyone was professional and knowledgeable. We had a blast on both tours. Didier was our guide during the ATV tour and he treated us just like family. That was the best ATV tour we've taken and we've taken a few. The zip line guides (Alex, Diego... that's all I can remember) were phenomenal. We felt safe... More

We booked this company through the hotel we were staying at (Costa Verde). We have zip-lined before, but this was the most safety conscious company we have ever seen. Besides the zip line they had an optional tarzan swing and an optional drop into water at the end or the "chicken line" for those not interested in getting wet. Tour... More

The comment here is meant to be supportive. Please review the photos you've taken and improve on taken better photos. Our were fair at best. Some of our photos were good, some were in poor lighting ( at the water fall), some weren't in focus other were too far away. Take a class, if the photos are good I'm certain... More

My husband and I did the ATV tour and loved it! The tour guides picked us up where we were staying and then drove a group of us to where the ATVs were. On the drive they pointed out animals,plants and talked about the plantations.They went over how to use the ATVs and the importance of all staying together/driving in... More

Had a blast ! Miguel and Didier were fabulous guides. The ATV ride is well worth the cost. A great way to see part of the country.

Although a very good tour, it was not quite as good as other nature tours that I took while in Costa Rica. If I could, I would give it 3-1/2 stars and rate it as good - but that's not an option. The boat is a relaxing tour that was a welcome respite after a 1/2 day of hiking. It... More

Our hotel owner recommended this company over the others offering similar tours. She was right on. They offer Mango Grove, Zip Line, ATV and other tours. We elected to take two tours with this company. The snorkel tour was EXCELLENT. We were picked up at our hotel, paid for the tour in Quepos, then we were transported to the Quepos... More

This tour was fairly unclear from the start, but we rolled with it and saw some terrific wildlife. Our guide Augusto was a nice young man, but shy and had limited English. Was not clear he was coming with us until he got in a kayak, was very glad he did. Tour was on a bayou, very beautiful. Saw bats,... More
