We really loved the Safari Floating tour. We had Juan Pablo as a guide and he was AMAZING! We saw toucans, lots of king fishers, turtles, an otter, big orange iguanas, and most importantly felt safe and enjoyed a lovely last day of 2021 in such a lovely ambiance. When we finished the floating your the cook presented us with a yummy lunch and the best cup of coffee ever! Juan Pablo was very personable and made our kids comfortable. ¡Mil Gracias!

This was by far the best excursion we did. Yes zip lines and hanging bridges are fun but this was so much more than just floating down a river. The people there are super nice and friendly making sure you have everything you could possibly need to enjoy your day. Just sit and relax. The river was Beautiful. We saw lots of iguanas, birds, monkeys and more. Unfortunately/Fortunately we had a perfect sunny hot day so we didn’t see any sloths. You don’t even realize you were on the river for almost 3 hours because there is so much. We were lucky to have Pablo as a guide. He was so knowledgeable of everything Costa Rica from history to present day as well as all animals. When we got back he served us up the best and freshest food we had in CR. No wonder, afterwards he took us on a tour of their working farm. I cannot say enough of every person working here. By far the best place we booked an excursion through. Our only wish was if we had only booked our previous tours through here. DO NOT MISS BOOKING A TOUR THROUGH HERE I PROMISE YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU DID !

This was the most beautiful, fun and enlightening excursion I have been on. Guided by Pablo, who was not only entertaining, but knowledgeable in the history and natural habitat of Costa Rica. The tour started with a 2 &. 1/2 hour raft float down the river where we got to see many different species of birds, white faced Cappuccino monkey and Congo Monkeys. During the float we were treated to fresh Watermelon and Mango from a local farm stand. Upon return we were then rewarded with the best dish of fresh vegetables, chicken and rice and beans. Then we were delighted with a tour of the working farm where we got to hold baby goats, see how their fresh spices were grown and harvested. To end our adventure, we were given the opportunity to process an actual sugar cane and use that as a chaser to some homemade Moonshine!! If you are in La Fortuna, please don’t miss the opportunity to experience a tour with these amazing guys!!!

Had a great time on this Safari Float. We saw howler monkeys, white-faced capuchins, orange iguanas, and more! The float itself was fairly easy...except for portaging the boat in and out of the water haha. We got lunch at the Costa Rica Descents restaurant afterwards and got a tour of their farm. Definitely recommend! Shout out to Pablo for being a great tour guide!

My wife and I did the safari float and Mario was our guide. The river was calm and relaxing with a lot of great wildlife to see. We saw monkeys, birds, snakes, lizards, and even a cayman! The lunch provided was comida tipico de Costa Rica and they went out of their way to make it vegan for us. They also made coffee at our table from fresh coffee beans and it was amazing! I highly recommend any tour that they offer. Will absolutely come back again. Thank you for such a great adventure!

This was such an amazing part of my Costa Rican journey and I am so happy that I booked with this awesome company. The guide was super knowledgeable and fun. We saw Jesus lizards, river otters, howler monkeys, white faced monkeys, all sorts of birds and more. After we were given an interactive tour of their organic farm and treated to a delicious meal and old school Costa Rican coffee. I 1000% recommend.

Our family of 6, aged 18 to 76, spent the morning with Warner (Sala) on a safari float and then a tour of a small farm. From my first contact with Sylvia, our arrangements and lunch with Mathilde and then Warner.......wow!!! Best service, expert knowledge of the jungle, and passion for the job. Prompt pick-up, safe vehicle and good driver. Nicely prepared Costa Rica lunch. And the float tour......can't think of a better tour we have ever taken. We all agreed. Warner belongs to the BriBri tribe and knows the land, the medicinal plants and spots animals we could hardly find even after they were pointed out. We stopped for fruit and he taught us to fish with a hand held line, a single hook and watermelon. We could take this tour again and again. Thanks, Costa Rica Descents!

We had a GREAT day on the river! We were blessed with the sightings of white faced monkeys, howler monkeys, a sloth, toucans, a baby owl, a momma owl, a tiger heron, and some bats! Even without seeing any animals, the float down the river would have been nearly heaven! And - all this was topped off with an absolutely excellent guide! He was courteous, skilled at navigating the boat, and an expert at spotting animals!
