This is a wonderful and easy trip to enjoy exploring nature among the unique landscapes of the Rio Frio. The river is calm, allowing you to steer the canoe up close to animals such as monkeys, alligators, iguanas, sloth bears, and many others, including a wide variety of resident and migratory birds, for an incredible wildlife experience. This option is suitable for beginners after receiving paddling instruction and a bit of nature information from our guides. Then, enjoy a traditional Costa Rican meal at El Caiman.
