Float downriver by canoe and enjoy the peace of the Rio Peñas Blancas and its surrounding rainforest on a 5-hour trip from La Fortuna. Enjoy the brilliant green of the river, the flashing blues of butterflies, and the pretty sight of tropical birds.
What to Expect
Spend a day surrounded by serenity on a 5-hour canoe safari float down the Rio Peñas Blancas. Leaving from La Fortuna, take a 20-minute drive to the river where your guide will give you a brief paddling and safety lesson to ensure your safety and comfort.
Then for the next 3 hours, float downriver and enjoy the vast array of life surrounding the water. Your guide will tell you all about the local flora and fauna. You will also have the chance to observe the famous red poisonous frog on a short walk in the jungle.
After some more relaxation on the river, stop at a pretty sandbank to stretch your legs, take a swim, or simply enjoy the surroundings. Enjoy a delicious fresh lunch prepared by your guide. Last but not least, finish your trip with a gentle paddle down the San Carlos River before being taken back to your hotel.
