Tour operator’s description: Float downriver by canoe and enjoy both the pace and the peace of the river and its surrounding rainforest. The brilliant green of the river, the flashing blues of Costa Rica’s famous morpho butterflies, and the sight of numerous brightly colored birds make this an unforgettable trip. The sounds of wrens singing in duet, frogs calling, and monkeys chattering fill the air, while we scan the canopy, river, and quiet farmland to seek basking iguanas and the rich diversity of wildlife along the Rio Peñas Blancas. The tour starts with a short 20 minute drive east of the river, where your guide will give you a brief paddling and safety lesson to ensure your safety and comfort on the river. For the next 3 hours you will float downriver, enjoying the vast array of life surrounding the river, benefiting from the expertise of your guide in all areas of flora and fauna. You will also have the chance to observe the famous red poisonous frog as your guide takes you on a short walk to their home. Then, after some more relaxation on the river, you will stop at a picturesque sandbank to stretch your legs, take a swim, or simply enjoy your surroundings. Also, you’ll enjoy a delicious fruit snack prepared by your guide. Last but not least, you’ll finish your trip with a gentle paddle down the San Carlos River to a meeting point, from where you will be taken back to your hotel.
