This is an excellent way of enjoying Tortuguero's natural wonders, quietly navigating throughout it's network of rivers, lagoons and canals. We offers 3 different tour options: from 2 days and 1 night to 4 days and 3 nights. First day and last day are the same on all options, but depending on the length of your stay you will have some more opportunities to do some extra paddling. On day one, we will travel on the van through Banana Plantations until reaching the starting point in Guapiles, in the boundary of the National Park on the Tortuguero River where the fun starts.

Late afternoon arrival to Mawamba Lodge. If staying longer than 1 night, next day paddle will take you to an exploration of a lifetime in Samay Laguna. Here you will board the kayaks for a 3 to 4 hours exploration of the area. The magical entrance to Laguna Nueve and a brief visit to the beach will be some of the day's highlights. Wonderful clean waters and total solitude will be part of the experience. Lunch is served on site and return to Mawamba Lodge for overnight.

On day of departure, after breakfast you will board the boat for the return trip to Matina where the bus will be waiting for the return to San José, stopping en route for lunch at the private Rio Danta Restaurant.
