We will start aboard the boat and move down or up the river depending on the tide. You will immerse yourself in the fascinating world of the mangroves—extremely adaptive trees.

Out on the river we will find three different species of monkeys including the white-headed capuchins, endemic squirrel…

Where you'll be

We will be in the Sierpe River in Osa. Osa is considered one of the more biodiverse places in the world. It holds two and a half percent of the whole world's biodiversity. The Terraba Sierpe wet lands conservation area is the largest in Pacific Central America, with five different species of mangroves protected here.

Guest safety

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 10 guests of all ages can attend. The tour is in a boat so you'll need light clothes and any kind of shoes. Hiking shoes are not needed. This experience is available to people of any age. Parents can bring kids under two, as well.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

Bring sunblock, camera, extra water, a hat, sunglasses, and a raincoat from May to November.
