We reached out to Experience Nosara via email the morning we were hoping to book an excursion and were pleased when we got a response at 9am sharp. We were able to get a river tour of Rio Montana at 2pm that same day.

Our tour guide Norbert was wonderful. A smart, enthusiastic young man with impeccable English and a ton of knowledge about the river and its fauna and flora. He provided plenty of content that was fun and applicable for both adults and children. He'll teach your kids how to speak the Howler Monkey language!

Our family of four (2 adults, a 10 year old and a 7 year old) shared 2 double kayaks. It worked out great, however if we didn't have the kids with us we would have loved doing the tour on SUPs instead. The river was calm without much current.

One of the highlights was our pit-stop on Nosara Beach, a black sand beach that was literally deserted. We hung out there drinking from coconuts, watching the birds, scanning the shoreline for shells, and swimming.

We would definitely recommend Norbert and Experience Nosara!

We had an incredible experience SUPing up the Nosara river. Our guide spotted many different species of birds for us and types vegetation. We stopped for a snack break on a beautiful beach. I highly recommend this trip!

Ernesto is a wonderful guide! Such a fun, mellow and beautiful experience! Would go again! It is not expensive and lasts about three hours. You can opt to get your own ride there or be picked up where you are staying.

Went with a group for SUP at Playa Guinones. Alan was an awesome guide. I had a really hard time at first but Alan was patient and kept helping me. Let’s just say I made it work and made it the whole way. The pink sand beach was really pretty and it was nice to get a break. The coconut water and pineapple were delicious! It was windy during our trip so even the experienced SUPers fell into the water some. But everyone had a great time and want to do it again.

Norberth was our guide. He was very knowledgeable and interesting. We learned about the birds and the plants. The waterfall was fabulous. Wear a bathing suit so you can jump in the water.
