Manuel Antonio Sea Kayaking Isla Damas
Paddle through one of the most unique ecosystems on the planet—a mangrove forest. The smooth inland waterways of the Damas Island Estuary by Quepos are a perfect place to learn about this important habitat and why we need to protect it. Mangrove forests are disappearing around the world at an alarming rate.
Mangroves thrive where the ocean’s saltwater meets the fresh water of tropical rivers, creating a periodically submerged forest of interlacing aerial roots. These “trees on stilts” play a key role in protecting coasts from storm surges and erosion, filtering water, storing carbon, and hosting high levels of biodiversity.
