Enjoy one of the wonders of Damas, 1 hour away from Jaco and 15 minutes before Manuel Antonio national park. The tour takes you on a boat ride (duration of the boat ride varies with the tides, from 1.5 to 2.5 hours) through a mangrove canal where animals such as white-faced monkeys, herons, different types of birds, snakes, small crocodiles and iguanas can be seen daily. The boat, designed for your safety and comfort, has a naturalist guide on board describing a variety of biological relationships between many organisms in this delicate habitat. Depending on the start time (determined by the tides), your private driver can schedule a stop for lunch or drinks before or after your tour. Food or drinks are not included.

  • Duration: approximately 1 ½ -2 hours of guided boat ride.
  • Days of operation: everyday. 
  • Hours of operation: the tour is scheduled around high tide, email us for details.
