The kayaks are comfortable, safe and easy to navigate. The mangroves tour is relaxing, easy and our guide, Victor, was entertaining and knowledgeable.

Thanks Margaret, for your review. I'm glad you decided to go kayaking on your own, verses having our guide do all the paddling for you, like you had originally asked. My guides are amazing because he would have paddled the entire tour for you. Rachel Pineapple Tours More

We enjoyed our trip out to the mangroves, which was our first time SUP-ing. We got the hang of it pretty quickly, though if balance isn't your thing, it might be a rather difficult (or worse, miserable!) couple of hours. (In that case, I'd recommend kayaking.) The tour was pleasant, and our guide seemed knowledgeable and kind. If you're a... More

Thank you for your review. It seems like you had a nice time. The tour is not meant to be fast paced at all. This tour is about taking a moment from the fast pace of life, breathing the fresh air, learning about the environment, viewing the wildlife and going with the flow. So, whether you are in kayak OR... More

I had communicated with Rachel the week before our arrival and she was great to talk to and was very helpful in deciding which tour to do with our group of eight family members.

I had an amazing time on my mangrove kayak tour with Nego. I got to see so many birds and even saw a few sloths. Rachel was incredibly helpful with any questions, not only regarding their tours, but about Costa Rica in general. Super friendly people and amazing tour. Highly recommend you stop by when in Dominical.
