Get to know the tropical river ecosystem, experience the tranquility of the forest while floating slowly down the Peñas Blancas River with the opportunity to observe many species of arboreal and aquatic animals such as: monkeys, sloths, iguanas, turtles, alligators and different types of birds such as herons, cormorants, American darters, and passerines, along with the possibility of observing a reptile species called the basilisk lizard, which is capable of walking on water. The interesting vegetation includes dense branches of ficus, luehea, and kapok trees full of lianas and epiphytic plants, which intersect from both sides of the river forming tunnels full of various shapes and exuberant green colors where very little sunlight gets through.

This tour is perfect for those who do not want much walking, but plenty of opportunities to observe and photograph the natural beauty and wildlife. The raft makes for a quiet and peaceful trip, where you will only occasionally need to lightly paddle to avoid an obstacle. Its material allows it to be light, highly buoyant, and stable without affecting the river floor as it passes nor disturbing the animals that inhabit it.

The boat captain is also an experienced naturalist guide with great knowledge to interpret the ecosystem and provide interesting information about it. His experience has also given him a unique ability to locate species in the dense vegetation, even those with camouflage and mimicry adaptations.

Duration: 8 hours
