Very, very nice crew and driver but.....first off, lunch took too long. Felt like our tour could have been more energetic-also-didn't need to sit in stagnet, bug filled water to see local species I'd already seen multiple times before. We literally sat in our kayaks for 30 minutes looking at one sleeping anteater...boring,

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.
