Description

Float along the Damas Island estuary on a guided boat tour to get up-close views of mangroves growing in abundance along the brackish water. Learn about the area’s native wildlife from your expert guide as you pass through lush rainforests aboard your comfortable vessel.

Your tour begins when you’re picked up at your hotel in Manuel Antonio and transferred to the boating dock. Climb aboard your vessel and glide out onto the tranquil waters of the estuary that borders the thick greenery of Damas Island. As your guide details the native flora and fauna that can be found in the area, keep your eyes peeled for caimans, sloths, white-faced monkeys, and anteaters who are often found in the area’s rainforests.

Learn how and why mangroves grow in salty water as you pass by an abundance of shrubs and small trees thriving in the estuary’s shallow depths. Before your tour comes to an end, enjoy a delicious meal of local specialties at a nearby restaurant while soaking up the warm sunshine amid this tropical paradise.

This was by far my favorite tour I’ve taken since I’ve been in Costa Rica and I’ve taken some awesome tours. Verney was our tour guide and he was personable and very knowledgeable. He was very passionate about what he does. I would definitely recommend Verney and Toucanes tours to anyone! Pura Vida
