My fiancée and I signed up for the mangrove kayaking experience, and Amigos Del Rio delivered from the moment we were picked up outside our Airbnb to the moment they dropped us off after a delicious lunch at their home base. Orlando was an excellent guide, and a Quepos native with a palpable passion for his hometown, who taught us not only about the indigenous creatures of the Damas estuary and mangrove habitat, but about the history of Quepos as well. Seeing the capuchin monkeys up close was the highlight of our trip. I highly recommend Amigos Del Rio for your next adventure in Quepos. Pura vida!
