      Had a great time. Juan Castro (our guide) made the trip a gem. I would recommend adding this morning tour to any stay in Quepos.

      Great tour, great tour company! Jade Tours.
      Marcy_K, Apr 2024
      Kenneth our tour guide from Jade Tours was amazing! He was knowledgeable and really knew how to locate the animals that we wanted to see. Loved our tour so much that we booked the mangrove night tour that very same day. Saw baby crocodiles in the morning and their mama at night. Monkeys, snakes, raccoons, we saw them all!

      Never visited a Mangrove before. Good trip. Guide was very sweet and knowledgeable, and passionate about the place. Would recommend to friends who visit.
      Monkeys, Iguanas, & Sloths Oh My!
      Maria_B, Apr 2024
      Monkeys. Iguanas & Crocodiles oh my! And even a rare sloth sighting! What a day on the river. It was our last day in Costa Rica and we were rather despairing since we had not seen a monkey or sloth yet and to have experienced both and in such numbers on this tour was spectacular to say the least. Our guides were wonderful, funny, insightful, and did a great job spotting animals and relating fun information about the animals we found. They held the interest of everyone in our boat from young kids to teens which is no small feat. We encountered other boat tours during our time in the Mangrove - one of which was guided by a man who was loudly whistling at the animals and calling out to them which in no short order simply caused them to disburse - I was very grateful for our quiet, respectful guide Edgar who allowed us to see but not disturb all these glorious creatures in the Mangrove. Enthusiastically endorse this tour - meal afterwards was really nice - all in all a great way to end our trip!
      Great…. Pura vida

      Your guide Eli was excellent. Also appreciated they didn’t try feeding the monkeys and wildlife like some of the other companies were doing to put on a show

      Our guide and boat captain did an excellent job on our trip however the front office did a horrible job in communicating with us in a timely manner and sent us to the wrong location for the tour I give their front office a score of 1 star
      Must do

      It was a good time with Kenneth an experienced and funny guide. During the tour we got a big monkey show.

      Really pleasant boat ride into the Mangroves with lots of wildlife sightings. Andersen did a great job of locating animals to see and photograph. He was a happy and enthusiastic guide. Dinner back in Quepos was a good one. Enjoyed the experience.
      Solid tour experience
      Vince_C, Mar 2024
      Super great time for first time Costa Rica visitor. All depends which animals are out and about when you take the tour so it's best to go early in the morning to see the Flora and fauna. You also cannot pick your tour guide but most are pretty great. Jade Tours is it good resource in Quepos, We also enjoyed their little office visitor section. Will use them again in the future.
      Monkey Trouble
      David_J, Mar 2024
      Didn't really see much for animals even though Edgar did a great job of spotting What he could. But way too much time was spent trying to find a boa that they had heard about. I wish we would have just give further down the river to see what was there. Lunch was good
      To much expensive for what it is but was ok.
      Martin_o, Mar 2024
      Seeing monkeys. And the vegetations was nice but not a lot to see . You better take the canoe tour and bring a banana if you want to see monkeys very well
      We had a very...
      Trevor_M, Feb 2024
      We had a very knowledgeable guide, Roy who made the trip a great success. We saw a variety of wildlife and the included lunch was most enjoyable. A worthwhile experience and one that I highly recommend.
      Great expetience

      Interesting and informative
      Cory_D, Feb 2024
      Anderson was such a great and knowledgeable guide. We saw so many animals. We even had a crazy sight of a Boa attacking an iguana. Lunch (@5:00) was very good as well. The only thing that was confiding and a little frustrating is when e booked the tour it stayed ot started at 1:00. We were them messaged We will be picked up at 1:30 and were picked up at 1:45. We didn't arrive until 2:15 to the boat site. Since the 2/12 hour tour didn't drop us off until after 5:00 we missed our reservation after. A more realistic time of the tour would have made it better.
      Fun few hours

      Enjoyed boat tour down the River - wildlife interesting - Tour guide Roy excellent - pointed up and explained many animals
      Enjoyable and fun.
      Wendy_E, Jan 2024
      We had a great time, saw crocodiles, snakes, birds, turtles , iguana and monkeys on the boat. Our guide was very knowledgable and had a great sense of humour. Very relaxing and interesting day.

      H_V, Jan 2024
      The pickup was on time and the trip through the mangroves was very illuminating. Royvin, our guide was energetic and informative. It was one of those days and although we didn't see the animals we were expecting to see , I'm sure on a different day things might have worked out differently.
      capuchin galore
      Jeannette_K, Jan 2024
      This was an amazing little adventure. We saw many creatures. Our guide (I forget his name) was very informative. I highly recommend this tour. Oh, and the lunch was very good. Thank you so much for showing me a little more, but a lot of your country.
      Saw white faced monkeys
      Barbara_L, Dec 2023
      Great trip! We saw lots of white faced monkeys. I was shocked how close they came to us. Seriously... one monkey jumped on the roof of our boat then came within a foot of my face.
      Save your money
      Christina_b, Nov 2023
      From all our tours this was our least favorite and most expensive. Our guide was very nice but he didn’t explain much. The boat got stuck a few times because the water was so shallow. We saw a few animals…snake, raccoon, lizard, sloth, and monkeys. But everything was far away. The boat ride is relaxing, but my kids were bored. After we went to lunch and the restaurant was okay. If you are bored and need something to do and have extra $$ do the tour. If you are deciding between this tour and something else don’t do it. I rather have done a crocodile tour down by Jaco which is way cheaper and more exciting or white water rafting. Too expensive for what it was.
      Nice trip fulfilling all our expectations.
      Robert_L, Nov 2023
      Our guide Armando was great. We had him once before. Trip was exceptional, and the lunch was unexpectedly good also. (Wife and I had the fish and we both thought it worth coming back just for the food.

      From $70.00
