We loved the tour, the guide was knowledgeable however we could have finished it 30 minutes earlier, the kids felt it was too long for rowing and being on the river.

This was one of the best activities we had in Costa Rica. The guides are very knowledgeable and funny. Two hours paddling, learning and enjoying on the river was the best use of our time there.

We saw howler monkeys, caymans, and a number of different birds on this trip. It's a two hour drive from Fortuna to the river and back, but enough stops for bathroom breaks. Best part were the guides. They are friendly, funny, and have so much...More
