River and Sea Kayaking with Rainforest Hike
We will drive to the most beautiful location in the area, Punta Uva . This trip consists of three sections. After a safety briefing we will first embark in a magical sea kayaking journey paralleling a coast full of cliffs, caves, and the most amazing rainforest. Then we will paddle our way up river though gorgeous rainforest where you can expect to spot monkeys, sloth, colorful birds, river turtles, bats and iguanas. Your professional guide will deliver a lot of interesting insights on this wonderful eco system. Back at the beach we will take a nice break to relax, swim and enjoy some nicely presented fresh fruit and snacks before hiking to the great over view at Grape Point.
Note: If the sea section is cancelled due to unsafe conditions we will offer a longer hike in the jungle. NO REFUND APPLIES.
