This tour was one of my favorite travel activities thus far. The kayak tour was incredible in itself, but with the guidance of Ignacio we were provided with endless information about the area's culture, history, and wildlife. In addition to his vast knowledge, Ignacio is incredibly friendly and easy to talk to, which makes the interactions and question asking more... More

Ignacio runs a very nice and relaxed tour along a very calm river. You are sure to photo capture wild life, whether it be Howler and Spider Monkeys playing or fighting. Also, sloths, toucan's, turtles and coatimundi. Ignacio is a wonderful person who will teach you about the fauna and fora of the area then show you a perfect coral... More

I was the only paying customer this morning. Two guides to one tourist is pretty luxurious! They were both friendly and helpful, and they took care to give me the full experience. They say they're expecting a group of 11 tomorrow. I'm sure they will all have a good time.

From the moment that we entered the river, we started to get immersed in a world different to what we have known before. We saw a whole range of animals that we have only known from wildlife documentaries, and they were right there, in front of us. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly, sharing a his knowledge on... More

I visited Costa Rica with a friend looking for fun and getting into know the wildlife! The kayak trip was a great idea to start with! Combination of sport and fun with great people. Nacho took us through the river showing and explaining us everything about the animals and typical vegetation that we saw, while having well fun! Even though... More

A really great (and easy) way to see the local wildlife, experience the river and the jungle. Igancio was very helpful and knowledgeable. And took some great photos - thank you. I'd definitely do this trip again. I loved it.

We had a fantastic time with Ignacio and Nature Riders and highly recommend them! Ignacio is a wonderful guide and a kind man who is invested in the progress and ecology of the region. He was deft and confident with any obstacle we met on the river (fallen logs etc), and we enjoyed our yummy fruit break. The kayaking out... More

Ignacio was right on time to pick us up, had everything ready in the river, to start our adventure, it... More

Just returned from Puerto Viejo where we did this excursion and it was awesome! We kayaked up a river, learned about different wildlife and stopped to eat delicious fruit. At the end we tried sea kayaking, which was such a fun/ crazy experience! Ignacio, our guide, was really nice and knowledgable. We actually learned quite a bit about the area!... More
