We took the mangrove paddle trip. Was a little longer than expected but very interesting. The guide spotted several boas in the trees, a couple of sloths, many varieties of birds and capuchin monkeys. The owner is very nice and accommodating.More

Hi, Yes definitely a 4 year old can go in a double kayak with an adult! We take young children all the time to the mangroves. We have 3 double kayaks available. Please contact me directly for more information. Thanks!
