Manuel Antonio Park Nature Guided Tour
"Amazing! I wanted to see sloths while in Costa Rica, and this tour did not disappoint! Beyond that, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He even waited for us to start (add at least 30 mins to any estimated drive time...). In addition to the sloths, we saw different types of monkeys, birds, and frogs! Some of our favorite pictures from this vacation were taken on this tour, and we are so thankful for our guides patience and experience. Near the end of the tour we even got to enjoy a lovely protected beach in a beautiful cove. All in all, this tour was incredible and we highly recommend it for anyone visiting Costa Rica!"..."

Rancho Tipico Don Juan, Horseback Riding tour
"Amazing adventure in the jungle on horseback! Randall picked us promptly at our hotel and drove us to the destination giving us fun facts and history about Costa Rica and the surrounding areas along the way. We were briefed on how to ride our horses (first timers) and we were on our way! The property was absolutely stunning and pristine - there was so much nature and wildlife around and Randall always had an eye out to catch any animals you may want to see. Our horses were super friendly and very easy to ride. We went up mountains and walked across streams horseback and ended at a beautiful waterfall where we were able to cool off and swim for a bit. Once we were back to the ending area Randall brought out beverages and cool towels for refreshment! We ended the day with a wonderful Costa Rican lunch! It was such an amazing experience that I would recommend to anyone!"..."

Damas Island Mangrove Kayaking Tour from Manuel Antonio
"We were on a cruise and booked this tour independently of the ship. We were able to get picked up at the dock and they were very accommodating. The tour had only 6 people and two very informative local guides who spoke English well and knew a lot about the mangrove vegetation and animals. We spent over 2 hours going leisurely through the mangroves and saw many monkeys, birds, iguanas, snakes and a small crocodile. Paddling was very easy and we were able to go into some of the smaller channels which the boat tours could not get to and we could go slower and get closer to the animals. The guides were great about finding the animals and giving informative details on them. At the end of the tour we stopped back at the tour office where they served a local lunch of rice beans and chicken. Overall it was a very enjoyable experience. Time on the bus only about 15-20 minutes each way. At our request, they dropped us off back in downtown Quepos where we could walk back to the ship. Use plenty of sunscreen, where a hat and while the bugs didn't seem bad, apply bug spray also. This"..."
