Sarapiqui River
You will go to the Caribbean area to visit the famous Sarapiqui River that crosses a variety of environments: humid tropical forests, mountains, pastures and more. The river is popular with rafters, who come to ride their rapids, but it also has quieter sections that are perfect for safari-style floats. This tour is a relaxed boat trip to explore the vibrant river ecosystem. As your boat sails downstream, be attentive to wildlife in the water and on land. You may be able to see monkeys, iguanas, sloths, crocodiles, lizards, otters and a wide variety of bird species. Your guides will help you detect animals and explain the ecological importance of the surrounding area. This tour lasts two hours and takes place in a comfortable and modern boat. The boat has a special engine designed to minimize the impact on the environment.

Great Day with a great guide.
John_C, 17-09-2022
Philander, our guide for the day, was the absolute best. We were with him for a long day, and he made everything interesting and fun. He is informative, loves his country and it’s beauty, patient, and always pleasant. This ended up being a private tour for the two of us. The long drive back was slow because of rain and traffic, but Philander stayed upbeat and patient even through that.
Excellent Tour

I highly recommend this tour.We were lucky enough to be alone on that day so it was only us and the tour guide Mauricio who was excellent, very knowledgeable and kind.The river safari is nice and pleasant and we did spot a lot of animals in their habitat.During the afternoon the La Paz Waterfall gardens is absolutely gorgeous and a must when in Costa Rica to discover it’s beautiful nature and wildlife.
Amazing and Intimate tour!

This is a must do in Costa Rica!

Our day started on a river cruise in which we saw: sloths, monkeys, birds, crocodiles and otters. Then we went to La Paz Waterfall and Gardens, in which our tour guide, Orturo, lead us through a different way to beat the crowds.

Lunch was amazing and the animals at the sanctuary were cool!

Our driver and tour guide were amazing and extremely informative! They truly made us feel like family! Pura Vida!

If you don't have a rent-a-car, this tour is the best option. And the guide Oscar Sandoval was the best too.

My granddaughter and I took this tour to the La Paz waterfall and gardens, we saw unusual Orchids, and an area were all kinds of butterflies live, my favorite animal the sloth was hanging upside down looking at the people. There are toucans, frogs and many kinds of snakes. Gorgeous jungle cats and Hummingbirds. This is a sanctuary for animals that have been taken illegally and confiscated by the government or surrendered by owners. When in Costa Rica don’t miss this experience. They also have a Hotel in the park.
