This was the best kayak trip I've ever been on! It was about three hours in length and worth every penny. Jorge was our guide in what ended up being a private tour for just my husband and nine year old daughter (in one kayak) and Jorge and myself in the other kayak. We can't say enough good things about Jorge who pointed out so much wildlife that we wouldn't have seen otherwise - crocodile, oreo snake, howler monkeys, green and grey iguanas, sloth, bats and a huge variety of colorful birds.
Also Jorge spotted a Jesus Christ lizard on a rock in the middle of the river which he purposely paddled back up river so as to get a better photo op for me then proceeded to smack the water with his paddle in order for us to see the lizard "run" across the river!
Jorge also offered to take my camera to get better wildlife shots when he was in a better position than me.
This float trip (by kayak or raft) also includes a refreshment break (cheese, fruit, juice) at an old Tico homestead, a "bare bones" wooden home literally built on the dirt and without any creature comforts that many of us have come to rely on, an eye opener for sure.
In a nutshell this kayak trip is a definite recommend, with the visible wildlife and lush forest all around a beautiful calm river guided by a patient and considerate guide we couldn't have asked for more. We went at the end of March and it was comfortable on the water, not too hot and a fairly shaded paddle.
