Wildlife & Birding Kayak Tour on the Nicoya Peninsula

Kayak through the mangrove forests of Boca Nosara

The Río Nosara and the Río Montana are the two largest rivers in the Nosara region on the Nicoya Peninsula. Where these waterways converge, they meet at the Boca Nosara river mouth, an area of great natural beauty. You'll find expansive mangrove forests home to various waterbirds here, including blue herons, anhingas, and roseate spoonbills. You might even see slightly more exotic animals, like howler monkeys, iguanas, and crocodiles, too.

Keep an eye out for these animals on your kayaking tour through Boca Nosara. As you paddle along the waterways and mangrove tunnels, your bilingual guide and birding expert will point out the most unusual specimens in the area. Finally, the excursion ends at the river mouth, where you'll cap the adventure with a refreshing slice of watermelon and, should you choose, a cold beer.
