Take a tour into your own hands by kayaking the gorgeous Rio Arenal wetlands! Enjoy exploring this incredibly diverse biome by steering your own kayak along the river. Be amazed by the abundant wildlife found in this beautiful Costa Rican rainforest. Our half-day River Kayak Safari tour is perfect for visitors of all ages as it is designed as a float tour to observe nature, not navigating rapids!
Say ¨hola¨ to Toucan Sam and the other 863 bird species that call the Arenal region home. Don´t be surprised to catch a howler or spider monkey swinging through the trees while sloths hang out lazily in their natural habitat. The Rio Arenal wetlands are home to a wide variety of wildlife, and while on the River Kayak Safari tour, lucky visitors will catch sight of the ¨Jesus Christ lizard¨ (common basilisk) running across the water!
Our enthusiastic naturalist guides will provide you with simple kayaking instructions so that you feel confident and safe traversing the Rio Arenal. These bilingual guides are eager to answer any questions that you may have regarding the wildlife, and you can feel like a biologist yourself after their detailed explanations! At the end of the tour, we will visit Don Pedro´s farm for a delicious Costa Rican snack, where you can visit a 100-year old farmhouse hand-built by a lovely family who still lives off the land.
