Float along comfortably under the shade of several tall species of mangroves, some which grow only in selected areas of the world. Spot sloths and White Faced Capuchin monkeys as they travel from branch to branch through the tree canopy. Hunt for nocturnal Silky Anteaters, and several types of non-poisonous snake resting amongst the mangroves. Keep your ears open for the songs of various marine birds as they dip and glide above your boat. Sightings of monkeys happen on over 90% of expeditions. So you are almost guaranteed a sighting. They have grown accustomed to seeing humans so sometimes they get curious and jump on the boat, allowing fantastic photo opportunities.
45 minutes drive from Jaco, you will climb aboard a special mangrove boat. As you float through the calm shallow waters your guide will teach you about the biodiversity of the area, and the different types of mangroves. From the boat, you will hopefully spot birds, lizards, and snakes amongst the mangroves. Keep the camera ready because the monkeys in this part of Costa Rica are curious! If you allow them to, they will come right into the boat with you!
Group size will be 2 – 8 people.
