Always striving for ways to combine eco-friendly technology with ecotourism in Costa Rica, we have a new eco-tour option that is great for all ages. Combining our comfortable rafts with the modern technology of a low carbon emission motor, our Eco Safari is the best way to connect with Costa Rica's wildlife on the Rio Frio and the surrounding the Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge. If you´ve been looking for a way to relax and be at one with nature, floating lazily down the river as the Cano Negro Wildlife Refuge unfolds before you is absolutely the way to go! This is the ultimate nature tour in Costa Rica! Trust us, it´s magic.
We´ll start our day with a scenic 90 minute drive from La Fortuna through the local banana, yucca and papaya plantations, and on to the Cano Negro Wildlife Preserve which is part of RAMSAR,an international coalition to protect wetlands around the world. This unique destination in Costa Rica is actually on the border of Nicaragua. Stopping at a local restaurant, we´ll take a little time to stretch our legs and have a snack before continuing our travels.
Soon we´ll board our individual inflatable rafts fitted with specially designed eco-friendly motors, and set off for another world entirely. The river is wide and slow flowing, which creates a peaceful environment in which the trees come alive with Capuchin and Arana monkeys, where iguanas and Jesus Christ lizards sun themselves on rocks just feet from your boat, and cormorants dry their wings after feasting on fresh sushi takeout from the Rio Frio. Experience true tranquility here! No vehicle noise, no other people, no technology. Just us and the rainforest for over two hours.
Don't worry, you won't go hungry after the rafting tour in Caño Negro. On the way back we will make a stop in the small town of Los Chiles to enjoy a typical Costa Rican lunch...yum!!
The Cano Negro Eco Safari is a must-do activity in Costa Rica for relaxation, communion with nature, and capturing some amazing animal photography. Don't miss out on your chance to create your own memories of a lifetime. Book your Caño Negro Eco Safari with The Real Deal Tours today!
