What a spectacular tour. If you're already in Costa Rica you've heard about Pura Vida, an all-purpose term meaning life is good, that's great, even 'thank you' or 'you're welcome.' To me, Linn and his daughter Abi turn the herons (we probably saw 4 types), rainbow-festooned macaws, ridiculously cute capucin monkeys, tiny squirrel monkeys (endemic to this very spot), crocodiles flashing goofy smiles, into pura vida. They're having as much fun beneath the mangroves as we are.

They're deeply knowledgeable about animal behaviors, mating, and eating, not to mention, the plants, bugs, butterflies. The more you ask, the deeper they'll go. I cannot recommend Linn and his daughter Abi highly enough.

Lin and his daughter Abi were the best people to take us on the 3hour

tour today . They know the place backwards and forwards. Every tree plant and animal. We saw 3 tipes of monkeys, Iguana, racoons snake,Macau lots of other birds.
The father and daughter made a special effort to find the best angle for us to see and take pictures with lots of patience.
We had a lovely day and recommend you hire then instead of a big company

We had an amazing tour and an amazing guide. Lynn took great passion in his work and made sure that we saw plenty of animals along the way. Definitely recommend both the Mangrove and Caño Island tours.

We had a wonderful time with Linn and his daughter. They are the only river tour in Sierpe owned and operated by locals. They spotted wildlife and were friendly and accommodating with our two toddlers. Highly recommended!

I highly recommend this tour. It was a relaxed and delightful way to see the abundant wildlife in this area. Link and his daughter (who helped to point out so many animals we would otherwise have missed) are excellent guides and very accommodating. Everyone in our group thought this was one of the highlights of our trip to Costa Rica!

Amazing experience! We did this tour with my two young daughters and they were so thrilled to see so many animals and beautiful views. Linn and his daughter are extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife in the area, and were wonderfully kind and accommodating to our family. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know another part of Costa Rica and this unique ecosystem, and were so impressed by the abundant wildlife. We highly recommend this experience to visitors of all ages.

¡Gracias Linn y Abby por una experiencia inolvidable!

Great experience and Great guides! Contact Linn directly via WhatsApp/text. +506 8589 7573. All very easy and flexible, super fun for the kids. Great boat for viewing and saw a ton of wildlife. Linn customized what we saw/how long based on our interests, which was wonderful (my 8 year old was very excited to see lots of lizards up close, and I was excited to spend lots of time watching monkeys!). All around a great experience. Highly highly recommend.

This was an excellent tour of the local area for wildlife enthusiasts. You can't book this on Tripadvisor and his website is down but it is well worth the extra effort to call or email Linn to set up a tour. He speaks very good English and answers texts quickly. Reach him at 506 8589-7573 or email at linncontreras@gmail.com if you want to plan your trip in advance. As for the tour, we saw so much diversity of wildlife you would think we were in a Zoo. My wife took almost 300 photos during this 3 hour tour. We saw a Crocodile, Macaws, 3 species of monkeys (more Capuchin monkeys than on our 2 day stay in Corcovado), and too many beautiful birds to recall. Of special note was the Pygmy Kingfisher and the Common Potoo. Both of which are difficult to find. Thank you Linn for such a wonderful time.

We had an AWESOME time on our boat tour through Sierpe with Linn and his crew. We saw SO many awesome creatures and learned so much about the area and history.

We saw a TON of monkeys and crocodiles, and Oscar (our boat driver) spotted THREE snakes chilling curled up in the trees. I have no idea how they are so skilled at spotting so much wildlife!

I think the biggest highlight was setting a bird killing devouring a basilisk.. never seen anything like THAT before!

The Sierpe area also felt really special and off the beaten path for typical Costa Rica tourism spots, so had a really cool and wild vibe. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour for anyone visiting Costa Rica. Great for families, too!
