What a wonderful experience! Danny from tucanes tours was a wonderful and friendly guide. You get to get up close and personal with birds, monkeys, and reptiles in the mangrove estuary. Was so fun paddling through tiny channels and ducking under roots and fronds. Would definitely recommend!

We really enjoyed our kayak tour through the mangroves with Alejandro, Danny, and Flaco! Very peaceful morning with a few sightings of capuchin monkeys, tiger mask crabs, and of course, the four types of mangroves. The tour was about two hours, and wasn’t too strenuous (very smooth water.) Finished off with a great breakfast and coffee! Definitely recommend if you enjoy kayaking, a very easy and peaceful activity with knowledgeable guides!

Great experience! Our guide Warner was cheerful, knowledgeable, and fun. We saw capuchin, a baby croc, basilisk lizards, a mangrove snake, ibis, and tons of crabs. It was a beautiful, relaxing, and active time.

Fantastic morning kayaking with the two Allen! Both guides were knowledgeable and very friendly and upbeat - great way to start the morning! They took us through a less travleled part of the mangroves which was dependent on the tides and it was an adventure! The meal afterward was excellent as well. Highly recommend this outfit and this excursion!

We had a great time on our guided tour along the mangroves. We learned a lot and had a blast while doing it. If it’s going to be sunny put extra sunscreen on. Our legs got a bit red but we were pretty white to begin with! 😂 The lunch afterwards was amazing just like all the other food we ate while in Costa Rica. Our guide Allan helped us make celebrating our anniversary so special!

Danny, our guide, and Enrique, our driver, took us for the Damas Island Kayak tour. As soon as we started driving, the tour basically already started by Enrique showing us plants and what they do. Then we went on to make a stop to see a sloth just along the road. After a delicious lunch, we drove to the kayaks, making more stops where Enrique showed us local plants and along the way Danny told us all about the country, palm plants and so much more. And we weren't even in the kayaks yet! The kayaking itself was great. Danny explained all about the trees, the tide, the animals and even though going upstream was quite challenging, it was all fun and we learned a lot from Danny. We had a wonderful tour, I would definitely recommend it!

We loved this tour, and Danny was a fabulous tour guide. The tour bus picked up exactly when promised and Danny gave us great information on the way about the local area. Our guide on the actual kayak tour was great and it was wonderful in the mangroves. We didn’t see loads of wildlife but the guides were super informative and provided loads of great information about the flora and fauna.
We stopped for breakfast on the way home as we had an early start to hit the right tide times.
Lovely breakfast at the immaculate Toucanes cafe. Toucanes Tours is a really professional operator.

What an incredible experience! Alan was the BEST! He was a fantastic guide and spotted so many things we never would have seen… we saw iguanas, basilisks, crabs, bats, herons, white ibis (I think?), hawks, a tiny little tamandua (anteater) but the highlight had to be the troops of capuchin monkeys! They were fearless and as interested in us as we were in them. Alan was friendly, personable and incredibly knowledgeable about the mangrove forest and surrounding area. We all learned so much. Tucanes tours provides water and a typical meal at the end, with an option of chicken, fish or vegetarian. Try the sour juice! One note - accept the offered transportation as the launch site is hidden and confusing to reach. We had our own car and planned to meet them there but we were glad we decided to take the van.

There was a lot that was good about this tour - the mangrove forest itself is amazing, the kayaking is just the right amount of challenge for average tourist participants, and the guides did a good job of managing safety and comfort concerns. The downside was that there was relatively little wildlife pointed out - a few birds and a few sleeping bats. We still enjoyed ourselves, but we didn't feel that the guides were fully engaged in the wildlife spotting that's such a valuable part of the Costa Rican experience.

We were very excited, because of all of the great reviews, but were very disappointed The price for this tour is very high and is out of proportion to the quality of the tour. We had been in Costa Rica for 3 weeks and this is the worst tour we have done. The guide was very focused on putting on 'a good show' and was only looking for the animals that would attract most tourists (like monkeys, crocodiles etc). We passed so many crabs, fishes, birds etc that are so important for the mangroves, but did not get any explanation on this specific ecosystem or these animals. The material used was not of good quality; again not in proportion with the price. Because we joined another group, we could not choose if we got a single or double kayak. I would recommend seeing the mangroves by kayak, but would not recommend this tour.
