Tour overview

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. On safe and stable rubber dinghies we will drift and look for rainforest inhabitants like toucans, sloths, monkeys, small caimans and turtles.

You will be accompanied by bilingual guides who have a high knowledge of the local flora and fauna and can tell you a lot about the ecosystem of the tropical rainforest.

Of course, safety is a top priority. Before the tour starts you will get a detailed instruction in paddling and will be equipped with the necessary equipment.

After the beautiful river safari we will spoil your palate. On a small ranch we will be guided through the garden and examine the cultivation of coffee, cacao and sugar cane. Afterwards we will have a small tasting.

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