Our Manuel Antonio Mangrove Tours explore the Damas Island mangroves – just 15 minutes from Manuel Antonio. The calm waterways of the Dams Island mangroves are your pathway to the mysteries of this ecological treasure. The dramatic backdrop of the Fila Chonta Mountains frames this waterway of life. An experienced bilingual guide will lead you through the maze of water paths that are home to whiteface monkeys (they could jump into the boat!!), Caymans, boa constrictors, egrets, sloths, crocodiles and anteaters. In addition, you will see dozens of exotic birds, plants and flowers. You may even catch a glimpse at the rare silky pigmy anteater – barely bigger than the human hand.
