Select tour language
    What to Expect
    Kick off your experience with pickup at your La Fortuna hotel at either 7am, 1pm, or 4pm. Make sure you’re armed with insect repellant and sunscreen.

    Following a short 30-minute journey to the Peñas Blancas River, you’ll arrive at your docking point and, after a safety briefing and life vest fitting, board an inflatable boat to begin your 1.5-hour cruise.

    At a leisurely speed, glide past tropical rain forest abundant with wildlife and, using the provided binoculars, keep your eyes peeled for monkeys, sloths, and toucans.

    Stop to enjoy tropical fruit and cold drinks midway through your journey and conclude the cruise with lunch on the banks of the river. Your experience ends with hotel drop-off in La Fortuna.
