The Damas Island is about half an hour by boat from Manuel Antonio. On the trip to the island we will pass through the estuary, a magnificent opportunity to admire birds, as well as wildlife such as caimans, sloths, crocodiles, boas, white face monkeys, egrets and much more. Once on the island, a walking tour through the trails will take us to magic places. Enjoy the fascinating mangrove of Isla Damas on this relaxing covered boat tour through the complex estuary system. It is one of the most highly recommended tours of the area. This relaxing half-day tour begins just off shore of the Damas Island Estuary, about 5 kms south of Quepos. Your guide will pick you up at the hotel and drive you to the launch at Damas Island. Lunch will be served either before or after the tour depending on the time of departure. As you glide along the fascinating waterways in your covered motor boat, your guide will provide comprehensive information about the complex self-sustaining mangrove system. White, black, red, and pineapple mangroves are some of the varieties that you will learn to identify. Isla Damas features three types of mangrove forests connected by a myriad of choked and hidden waterways. Guests on this highly recommended tour are often rewarded with sightings of white-faced monkeys, silky anteaters, three-toed sloths, exotic bird species, crocodiles, boa constrictors, rare crab-eating raccoons, and the list goes on.
