Guided Tour to the Caño Negro Wetland in Canoe

By Canoa Aventura
This is a wonderful and easy trip to enjoy exploring nature among the unique landscapes of the Rio Frio. The river is calm, allowing you to direct the canoe very close to animals such as monkeys, alligators, iguanas, sloths and many others, including a variety of residents and migratory birds, for an incredible wildlife experience. This option is suitable for beginners after receiving instructions for rowing and some information about the nature of our guides. Then, enjoy a traditional Costa Rican meal at El Caiman

George was an amazing tour guide. Not only did we see a troupe of howler monkeys, he took us on shore and we walked to get a close up view of two 100% orange howler monkeys. Then we saw capuchin monkeys cayman iguanas and other lizards and to top it all off we saw a Jaguar in the wild! It was truly a lifelong memory that we will always cherish.

Had an amazing trip along the river by canoe with our tour guild Mario! He was hilarious and so well educated about his country and loved sharing with us. We saw loads of different lizards , iguanas , speckled caimans and birds.
Was an extremely hot day on the river definitely recommend sunscreen and light clothing. Our guild provided water and a simple lunch for us.
Was a beautiful way to experience a Costa Rica river and wetland. Thanks Mario and Horhay!

Both the driver, Jorge, and the tour guide Fauricio we’re excellent as well as very knowledgeable in showing us all of the wildlife. They spotted very well hidden wildlife, we got to see various Costa Rican monkeys that are specific to Costa Rica! We also saw sloths, very unique bird life, and many lizards which were very cool! Also, the lunch provided was fresh and very delicious! I would highly recommend people choosing this tour with Canoa Adventura they were simply amazing. It was a truly wonderful experience!

Thank you so much for joining us in our Caño Negro in Canoe. This wetland is one of the most visited spots in Costa Rica, special for nature lovers looking to spot some of the most impressive wildlife in Costa Rica. One of the highlights of doing this tour with us is that we run the tour in a private section, and with a private restaurant, which makes it a customized adventure. We hope to see you back again soon

Thank you so much for joining us!. This tour to the Wetland of Caño Negro is a Must-Do if you´re looking to connect with nature and explore one of the top spots in Costa Rica for Wildlife sight. What makes our tour a unique experience is that we run the boat trip in a private section to ensure a customized adventure. The tour includes lunch, and a visit to "El Corral" a typical rancho where travelers will be able to learn about our culture, the Cacao and Coffee procedure, and taste lit of unique flavors. We hope to see you back again soon!.
