Canoeing

Price $65 per person

This tour starts on a private farm about 20 minutes from the town of Puerto Viejo and ends in the city of Puerto Viejo. You will be given a life jacket, helmet and a paddle… and yes you will be expected to paddle, a little. The guides will show you how to paddle and give you instructions on basic river safety.
The section of the Puerto Viejo River you will run is class I (flat water) and is a great opportunity to float down through the pristine rainforest of the La Selva Biological Station.
In this protected lowland tropical rainforest: you will be able to see howler monkeys, sloths, iguanas and all manner of birds which are often difficult to spot while hiking, including sunbitterns, toucans, herons, ospreys and more. This trip is a must for bird watchers. Depending on the water level, the tour lasts between 2 and 3 hours. Children & adults of all ages are welcome on this peaceful float as it is perfect for families. Canoes are recommended for the trip, but arrangements can also be made for duckies (inflatable kayak) or raft trips.
