Full description
Experience the abundance of nature and wildlife that Costa Rica has to offer. This Costa Rica safari float is a smooth 2-hour paddle down the quiet, lower section of the Sarapiqui River. Your bilingual nature guide will paddle and steer your boat as you float down the river, whilst pointing out all of the exotic wildlife such as birds, frogs, insects, and monkeys in the Costa Rica rainforest.

You will begin going down the river from the Red Eye Frog restaurant, which is located in El Roble de Sarapiqui. Your eagle-eyed guide will begin to show off Costa Rica's amazing wildlife, as they point out a wide array of plant and animal species. You’ll float next to the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor (San Juan La Selva Biological Corridor) where there is a good possibility of seeing sloths, howler monkeys, lizards, and even black-river otters.

This area is also famous for its incredible amount of tropical birds such as ospreys, boat-billed herons, parrots, kingfishers, and the great green macaw, which is on the endangered species list. For those who want to be even closer to nature, you will have the chance to get out of the raft and into the river to refresh yourself along the way. To finish your day you will return to the Red Eye Frog Restaurant to enjoy a delicious traditional Costa Rican lunch called a “Casado”, along with some amazing gourmet Costa Rican coffee.
