Tour overview

  • Quiet dinghy ride on the Peñas Blancas River
  • Observation of tropical birds and mammals
  • Small groups and guides with high expertise for best care
  • Perfect for families with children 5 years and older

Enjoy a relaxing half-day trip on the calm waters of the Peñas Blancas River. The river is only about 20 minutes from La Fortuna. 

Of course, safety is a top priority for us. Before the tour starts, you will get a detailed instruction in paddling and be provided with the necessary equipment. In safe and stable inflatable boats we will then drift, follow the paddling instructions of our guide and keep an eye out for rainforest inhabitants such as toucans, sloths, monkeys, but also small caimans and turtles.

The bilingual guides who accompany this tour have a high knowledge of the local flora and fauna and will tell you about the ecosystem of the tropical rainforest. The river flows calmly, so we can relax and observe the nature and wildlife from the water and take as many pictures as we want (please bring waterproof bags).

After this beautiful river safari we will entice our palate with a traditional snack and some beverages on a small ranch. Then we will have an introduction into the secrets of the cocoa bean and chocolate production. Tasting is obviously included! With a happy heart, tons of pictures and maybe new friendships we are then ready to start our journey back to La Fortuna.

No experience is necessary for this adventure. Our qualified guides will give you all the basic instructions to enjoy the activity to the fullest.
