Our guides Daniel, Cesar, & our driver Carlos were excellent. They were very knowledgeable and friendly. The water is very tame so it is easy to paddle and there was shade through much of the kayak tour. The tour leaves according to the high tide, so even though it initially said that the tour started at 0600 am, we got an email saying that we were not actually going to be picked up until 1150 am. They took us to have a buffet lunch first and then we drove about 10 minutes to Damas island where the kayaking actually took place. We saw monkeys, iguanas, crabs, and many different types of birds.

An easy gentle ride down the mangroves. Birds monkeys bats lizards snakes and even a distant sloth with knowledgeable guides.they are pointing out the wildlife with enthusiasm and skill. In the rain we were under cover of the boat canopy Very pleasant. Reliable pick up. Lunch too.

An exceptional environment with a passionate guide who transmits the information to us with such liveliness. Made us see and learn about animals, birds, insects, etc. Unparalleled service in addition we were served a typical meal which was excellent.
