Safari Float on Sarapiqui River
Great For Families and Nature Lovers
Jungle Safari Float on the Sarapiqui River
Come see the abundance of nature and wildlife that Costa Rica has to offer! This Costa Rica Safari Float is a smooth, two-hour paddle down the quiet, lower section of the Sarapiqui River and great for nature lovers of all ages —especially children and their parents! Your bilingual nature guide will paddle and steer your boat as you float down the river and point out all of the exotic wildlife such as birds, frogs, insects, and monkeys in the Costa Rica rainforest!
We will start down the river at our restaurant, the Red Eye Frog located in El Roble de Sarapiqui and finish up in Jacare. Your eagle-eyed guide will show off Costa Rica's amazing wildlife as he points 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.
Plus, this area is 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 and refresh yourself as we go down the river.
The Jungle Safari Float is great for nature lovers of all ages – children love this tour! It’s also perfect for couples or large groups who want to spend some quality time and relax together in the middle of a tropical paradise!
And to finish your day we will return to the Red Eye Frog Restaurant to have a delicious traditional Costa Rican lunch called a “Casado” along with some amazing Costa Rican gourmet coffee.

The river float was an easy two plus hour glide down the Penas Blancas River. The guides provided by Canoa Advetura were fun and informative. They knew all the places to stop on the river and show us the wildlife and birds. An array of birds, bats, lizards and monkey. Even a crocodile sighting thrown in. The stop at a small home at the midpoint of the journey was a delight. Home baked sweet bread, cheeses and plantains, washed down with coffee and juice. It really was an idyllic hideaway and totally unexpected. It was a wonderful way to spend the first afternoon and an introduction to the sights of the surrounding area. The perfect, real estate trip for anyone not seeking a strenuous day tour.
