It doesn’t matter if you are an experienced kayaker, a wildlife enthusiast looking for a good picture, or just a kayaking newbie looking for a short glide on some smooth water, the Kayak Limón Tour located in the Natural Reserve and Wildlife Refuge of Laguna Limón is by far the best way to experience nature at its finest in The Dominican Republic. This amazing tour offers a sustainable, community-based tour led by a local guide. With tours lasting anywhere from 3-5 hours, depending upon your experience and stamina, the local guide from Los Guineos will help you find the plants and animals that most tourists sticking to the traditional route never get to see.
With its lush mangroves, extensive array of bird species, and even a mammal or two lining the waters, you will want to make sure to pack a waterproof camera and maybe even an animal reference guide. If you aren’t too keen on lugging around reference guides don’t
worry, your guide will be happy to point out local names of plants and animals as well as explain how the local fishermen fish in the lagoon.
For beach goers, the Kayak Limón Tour is going to be especially desirable, as this is one of the only and best ways of getting to the hidden beach of Playa Limón, where you can enjoy a coconut and a swim. For those people
without great swimming skills, don’t worry – all of the Kayak Limón Tour guides have received training in kayaking rescue/assist techniques, first-aid, and are official “Guides of the Environment” as defined by the Dominican Republic Department of Tourism.
