Headed for Manuel Antonio National Park on your travels to Costa Rica? I have some very good advice for you.  There is a wonderful adventure tour company there called Iguana Tours, located in the little town of Quepos which is  adjacent to the national park.  Iguana tours is the oldest and best tour operator in this area, offering  the following tours.

Horseback riding  Lead by Don Gilberto, an expert horseman  who has lived in Quepos for many years.  Ride deep into the Tocori biological preserve where you see toucans,  hike through the rain forest to a forty foot waterfall and take a refreshing swim.  Afterwards Don Gilberto’s family prepare for you a delicious typical Costa Rican meal of rice and beans, picadilla  de chayote,  fresh tomatoes, and baked shredded chicken.  A fresh drink made of  local pineapple and papaya was just perfect!   All in all a great half day tour.

White water rafting on the Naranjo  River -difficulty depends on the amount of recent rainfall.  It is a seven mile section and is generally recommended for experienced paddlers.  and you much be over 12 years of age.  Another great half day tour.

White water rafting on the Savegre   River .  This is a 13 mile section into the remote back country of the Savegre River. Must be in good physical condition and  must be over 10 years of age.

Horseback riding on the beach with Don Gilbert and his daughter Dyala.   Ride at you own pace along the beautiful Pacific beaches and also take a hike through exotic plant life adjacent to the beach.  Must be at least 6 years of age.

Mangrove Boat tour.  See mangrove forests and lots of wildlife in the Damas Island Estuary. This is a great half day tour where you sit comfortably in the boat which has a cover to protect you from the sun. What are  mangroves? They are salt living-salt resistant  marine forest comprising trees, shrubs, palms, and grasses. They filter pollution and hold nutrients.
