The clear water inhabits an impressive variety of marine life. Narrow passages between the branches of the mangroves will fascinate with what you find! The river opens into the sea at a sandy beach with spectacular views of the Golfo Dulce bay and the Pacific Ocean. It’s time to stretch your legs, savor tropical fruits and even swim in the warm water before continuing your journey.
Tours in the mangroves of the Osa Peninsula are done at high tide. Consult with us to know the tour schedule according to your travel dates in the area. If the tide is high enough in the afternoon, try our sunset kayak tour for the most amazing light!
Paddling at night is an unforgettable experience as well. The Golfo Dulce has a low amount of salt water allowing innumerable plankton that sparkle to the movement of the water as you paddle through them. The water below you will sparkle almost as brilliantly as the sky above. This is one tour that you will never forget!
