Nature Wildlife Safari Float in La Fortuna

Families will love this tour! This is an adventure you can bring the little kids on too. This wildlife river float trip is great for nature lovers of all ages, so bring the kids and the grandparents along. A short 25-minute drive from Fortuna, this peaceful, slow-flow section of the Peñas Blancas River is easy and relaxing.

Enjoy the sights and sounds of Costa Rica’s wildlife on our Costa Rica for Kids Nature Wildlife Safari Float Tour. The peace and tranquility of the rainforest allows you to really take in all the sights and sounds of this tropical setting. And you don’t have to do a thing but enjoy the ride and keep your eyes peeled for wildlife, the river guide will do all of the paddling for you.

This nature wildlife safari float trip down the Peñas Blancas River is great for nature lovers, no matter what age. It is a great river for spotting a sloth or some of the two species of the monkeys that call this river home – the howler monkey and white-faced capuchin monkeys. You are likely to see small crocodiles, big iguanas, Jesus Christ lizards (they actually walk on water!) and a wide array of migratory birds.

Your naturalist guide loves sharing his or her knowledge of the plants and animals you encounter on the float, and your captain will put your boat close enough to get a good look at the animals, reptiles and birds. They will also share information about the community and the locals that live here.

Your trip on the river will be around two hours, moving at a relaxing pace as you explore the Peñas Blancas river looking for rainforest creatures big and small. After the float down the river, you will stop at one of the neighboring farms where you will rehydrate with a freshly prepared snack and enjoy a cup of coffee before heading back to your Arenal area hotel.
