An incredible experience. William and his wife are amazing people. Very knowledgeable in mangrove wildlife. This is not a zoo though, so seeing wildlife will be difficult, as in their natural state animals will always avoid humans. But no the less this is definitively a wonderful experience for this who wants to sail the mangroves canals in peace and commune with nature. In the end, all the chatter and discussions with them are what make the experience wonderful. Also, William’s wife makes an amazing Costa Rican breakfast! 5 stars service!
