Full description

Enjoy a unique kayak experience among the mangroves of Nichupte Lagoon. Follow your guide on a 3-hour tour through the aquatic landscape as you take in spectacular views of the local flora and fauna.

Start your day with an introductory safety briefing and lessons on how to kayak. Enter the mangrove forest and admire the great variety of birds that inhabit the ecosystem.

Visit various channels and lagoons and, if you are lucky, spot some exotic animals that live in the area. Some species of birds and fishes that you could see are albatrosses, herons, hawks, cormorants, cao birds, stingrays, barracudas, pufferfish, needlefish, starfish, and many others.

Make a stop to take some pictures and recharge your batteries with a bottle of water and some fruity snacks before heading back to your lodging.

It was very pleasant relaxing time in a quiet atmosphere around nature. Guide Axel is a friendly person, ready to answer questions. Kayaking experience is required to pass waves in open laguna area if windy and coming against water flow in some areas. A small sandy beach on a way back is a nice place to relax in soft waves. I have enjoyed this kayak trip).

A wonderful experience suitable for beginners, 100% worth it! Miss Gabi was really friendly, joyful, patient and informative. We saw so much, including a manta ray, herons, starfish, barracudas, and baby mangroves. No worries - no crocodiles at all ;)

As my first time kayaking, I didn’t have any difficulties because i was given clear instructions by the tour guide. Very professional, patient and sociable. The lagoon is a beautiful place to explore, especially, on a kayak. Also, the stop at Playa Conchitas is the perfect spot to have a break.
