“mangrove kayak tour”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Had an absoultely fabulous tour with Rachel and Nego. The mangroves were stunning, full of wildlife and wonder. Rachel, the self-confessed bird nerd was a wealth of information, and a generally all round fun girl too. And Nego being a lifelong local had lots of interesting facts and history. I LOVE that she took pictures and e-mailed them to us! I can't wait until we can return to Dominical and take the Ventanas caves kayak tour.

We had a great time at the mangroves with you and your family, as well. I am glad we got those photos to you, because my camera was lost the very next day. So unfortunately, you were the last family to receive photos....until I buy a new one. Please come back to visit us soon!

“Above and beyond”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I can't say enough positive things about Pineapple tours. Rachel in the booking office was extremely helpful in suggesting activities including things to do back near our hotel. We chose the mangrove kayak tour. Felix was our guide. Felix was extremely attentive, patient, and helpful. We saw tons of wildlife and had a great time. Felix even drove my girlfriends hat back to our hotel when she accidentally left in Felix's van. They also had fresh fruit and water for us after the tour. This tour company is very safe and highly recommended.

“Don't miss”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

A great interesting and relaxing Kayak trip in the mangroves witch Rachel from Pinapple Kayak Tours . Excellent Organization with a Rachel who does not miss any of the many birds and animals and giving you at the same time a lot of meaningful explanations about the fauna and nature of this little paradise. A highlight in Dominical

“Two fabulous tours!”
Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

My husband and I used Pineapple tours for two things- kayaking through the mangroves and a surf lesson and loved both trips! Junior was our surf instructor and Rachel was our guide for the kayaking. Junior was fun to talk to and very helpful during the lesson, working well with two different skill levels and Rachel was very well versed in all sorts of plants and animals in the area. Both trips ended with an assortment of the freshest local fruits and cold water. It was easy to book the tours and easy to find the shop- we would absolutely recommend this company to other visitors and would use them again if we are able to return!

“Our Family's #1 Dominical-Area Experience”
Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

Hands down, touring the mangrove tributaries in kayaks with Rachel and her husband, Nego, was our best family experience during our recent week in the Dominical area. We were 10 in all, grandparents, children and grandchildren ranging from 16 down to 7. We all kayaked solo except for the 7 year old who toured with h is dad. Rachel and Nego set our itinerary to meet our interests and needs and are filled with knowledge that brought our surrounding alive. Sunset on the beach at tour's end was a great finale for the family. Don't miss this.
