Ahhhhhhh.....few things are more peaceful and calming than floating and feeling at one with nature on a kayak. If that sounds like and excellent day of vacation to you, our Tamarindo Mangroves & Estuary Kayak tour is perfect for you. And with the best guides in Tamarindo and the best tour deals in Costa Rica, our Tamarindo estuary kayak tour definitely does not disappoint!
As you drift quietly down the Matapalo River through the Tamarindo estuary canals, you will be enveloped by the gorgeous mangroves intertwining the river banks creating this incredibly unique ecosystem in Costa Rica. Without a motor, kayaks are much less likely to disturb the wildlife, so get your cameras ready and prepare to be dazzled as the jungle menagerie that make their home in this section of the Las Baulas National Park.
As our kayaks silently glide through the Tamarindo Wildlife Refuge, our expert guides will help spot and identify the incredibly diverse variety of tropical birds and water fowl hidden throughout the mangrove ecosystem. Most commonly found birds in the Tamarindo Mangroves are a variety of herons and egrets as well as the green kingfisher and black hawks, but there are also some smaller beauties such as warblers and parrots that hang out in the estuary as well. Howler monkeys grace the trees above, turtles take a break on a log, butterflies flutter about....and oh yeah, be on the lookout for crocodiles that also glide silently down the river with you.
As you may know, eco-tourism in Costa Rica is a high priority, and nothing embodies that like a kayak tour in Tamarindo through the mangroves estuary. Even better, you can customize your Tamarindo Mangroves & Estuary Kayak tour to make it private for just you and one of our guides or a small group of friends, or join the more economic group tour. However you customize your Tamarindo Mangroves kayak tour, we are sure it will be the highlight of your Tamarindo vacation.
