Your day of adventure and sweet indulgence starts with a Safari Float down the Peñas Blancas. This is a wonderful river trip for the youngest to the oldest nature lover in your group. The design of the rafts allow you to get up close to the banks as you spot wildlife, flora and fauna.

You will be picked up at your La Fortuna area hotel, and take a short drive to the dock along the Peñas Blancas River. Your knowledgeable, friendly guide will assist everyone with life jackets before helping you board the rafts. During your two-hour float down the Peñas Blancas your guide will share the history of the region and their love of Costa Rica!

You will move along at a leisurely pace down the Peñas Blancas River to improve your opportunities to sight the abundant life that inhabit this river. Monkeys, the Long-Nosed bat, iguanas, Jesus Christ lizards, owls and much more reside along the banks of the Peñas Blancas River.

After returning to the dock, you will depart for the Sweet Chocolate Tour, where you will learn about the history of chocolate from its discovery and through the process of making chocolate in the delicious forms we enjoy eating now.

During this hands-on discovery, you will participate in the production, harvesting of the cacoa, drying techniques and grinding the seeds.

At the end of the tour, you will get a chance to sample some of the high-quality gourment chocolate!  Sweet day, indeed.
