Our peace allows you to enjoy the tranquility of the Costa Rica rainforest soaking in all the sights and sounds of the tropical setting. Be sure to keep an eye out for a variety of monkeys, caimans, iguanas,  Jesus Christ lizards (they actually walk on water!), and a wide assortment of colorful bird species.

This wildlife river float trip is great for nature lovers of all ages – families will love this tour!  A short  25 minutes drive from  Fortuna, this peaceful, slow-flow section of the Peñas Blancas River is easy and relaxing. Keep your eyes open for a glimpse of a sloth or howler Cara Blancaand white-faced monkeys. The river is home to small crocodiles that duck in the water when you cruise past. Your naturalist guide will share local history and knowledge of the plants and animals you encounter on the float. We will spend around 2 hours at a relaxing paddle pace exploring the river banks for rainforest inhabitants. After we float down the river we will make a stop at one of the riverside farms where we will refresh with a locally prepared snack and a cup of coffee before heading back to your  La Fortuna hotel.

Make sure to bring your camera and binoculars on this tour!

MAKE IT A COMBO! – This is half-day tour is a great option to combine with a visit to Dona Mara’s house where you will have a sit-down tortilla-making lesson and a delicious home-cooked Costa Rican lunch.
