La Fortuna: Half-Day Wildlife Safari Float

Overview

This safari float on the Peñas Blancas River offers a relaxing way to enjoy the abundant wildlife surrounding the banks of this lush paradise. Use your hands to take pictures of the rainforest canopy teeming with monkeys or take a closer look of a tropical bird with your binoculars while you float in this oar boat where your expert naturalist will paddle and you will relax like the iguanas nearby sunning themselves on the branches. The trip begins with a twenty minute drive from Fortuna to the river. You will float down the river for the duration of approximately 2-hours during which you will have an opportunity to see much of Costa Rica’s famous wildlife and have an interactive conversation with your expert guide. At the end of the river portion of this trip, you will arrive at a local working farm where the owner is a well-known Costa Rican horse breeder and trainer. His wife also makes delicious typical homemade snacks and serves these treats with a world-renowned coffee made the old fashioned way in a special sock. If you prefer juice over coffee, then there will be something for everyone’s desires. By the way, everything you eat at this farm comes directly from the land to you.
