We had a great experience! First of all: the welcome by Ricardo was very friendly and nice, he has a great little spot just at the mouth of the Rio Claro. Secondly: the canoe tour was great! So much fun and our very friendly 'captain' Steven waited ten minutes smiling when I was deliberating whether to jump a cliff or not. We paddled upstream and swam down, finishing at the waterfalls. Very nice jungle experience. Last and best of all: Ricardo is doing some amazing work conserving sea turtles and over a cup of coffee he showed us the ones that just hatched, which we could set free at sunset! Magical added bonus!

This was the highlight of our stay in Drake Bay. Beautiful scenery and incredible value. A refreshing and invigorating activity, esp. recommended for older children. Saw toucans and monkeys, as well as hawksbill turtles that just hatched! Can swim or boat up the river. Very friendly and helpful guide and owner.

Ricardo has a really nice place at Rio Claro which he decorates and treats with love and care. Besides the canoe tour to wonderful waterfalls and a natural jacuzzi you can watch Adriana creating bacelets and necklaces made of materials found at the beach.

What we really liked is Ricardo's effort of conserving sea turtles by saving the eggs from being eaten by dogs or humans and taking care of them until the babies hatch. When the time comes, Ricardo takes them back to the beach and waves good bye, until they savely reach the ocean.

Really frindly and open hearted guys!
