See more of Costa Rica’s rain forest on a tour that combines a river safari float with an easy walk to La Fortuna waterfall. Glide down the calm waters of Penas Blancas River and look for wildlife such as monkeys, iguanas, and birds. Have a traditional Costa Rican lunch at a riverside restaurant, then walk through the rain forest to the waterfall and take a dip (conditions permitting).
