The Mangrove Tour was fun as kayaking in a new and exotic location often is, but on the whole it was not one of our more memorable events. Paddling was slow, guide was sometimes very soft spoken, and the flies were prolific requiring head nets that it not immediately clear were necessary when first boarding the kayaks.That said the place...

Spent the morning on a relaxing kayak tour through a mangrove forest along the Pacific Ocean. The owners are wonderful and their guides speak perfect English--which was important to us. They are completely prepared for everything and very knowledgeable about the area and concerned that their guests have a great experience. On the way to the launching area we stopped... More

We (a group of 4) took the combo tour with Pineapple Tours. It included sea kayaking, snorkeling, and the mangrove kayaking. There was a big swell in (waves up to 10+ feet!), so the snorkeling was not that great because it was so churned up from the current that you couldn't see much. We still saw some fish, sea urchins,... More

Great tour. Very friendly and relaxed staff. Good coffee waiting for us when we showed up for the tour. Short drive to the mangroves, supplied us with hats, sunscreen, and bug spray for the tour. Nice relaxing paddle through the mangroves, guides were very knowledgeable about the mangroves and all the creatures that live there. We saw many birds, monkeys,... More

This tour was well worth it. Everyone at Pineapple Tours was friendly and a pleasure to spend the day with. The mangroves were beautiful, and although we were swarmed by bugs, donning a provided mosquito net made it a non-issue. I'm a fan of kayaking, anyway, and this was a nice relaxed pace for a day trip, just taking it... More

It was amazing. I never know what to expect and understand that you can't always see wildlife but we did! We saw monkeys twice and 2 two toed sloths and 2 three toed sloths and a huge green parrot. We kayaked through a river to a beach and took a break to enjoy the scenery. Then we went back along... More

The Caves (Las Ventanas) was the most exciting, fun and beautiful run of our kayaking trips in CR. Our guide was so fantastic teaching us to surf launch and land and took us thu the caves around the rocks in an adrenaline rush of water. After landing on a beach for a rest we saw colorful tucans in the trees;... More

We took two tours with Pinapple - both very well guided by Victor. The first was to the Whale's Tail - and included kayaking, snorkeling and lots of information. Being on the Ocean on our first day in CR was a great way to get started. The guides carefully and safely got us over the waves to flat water and... More
