About Canoa Aventura Company

La Fortuna Tour Operator Canoa Aventura

Canoa Aventura is a tour operator located in La Fortuna de San Carlos, at the foot of the Arenal Volcano. The company was born 20 years ago, and today is one of the most stable, professional, and strongest tour operators in the region.

The beginning

Canoa Aventura started with the canoe tour, and the name is due to that. The main activity, in the beginning, was canoeing down the area’s rivers, especially the Peñas Blancas River, a tributary of the San Carlos River, as well as other rivers in the northern region.

Another tour that soon became popular was the canoe trip through the Caño Negro wetland.


The years went by, and due to the great satisfaction of the clients, word-of-mouth recommendations as well as the integration of several national and international travel agencies as well as hotels in the area which started to send clients, the company grew rapidly.


Canoa Aventura offers a smartly chosen selection of tours which includes the canoe tours at Rio Peñas Blancas, and canoe tours at Caño Negro. Still, additionally, with the incorporation of inflatable rafts as well as land transport units and several Pantoon-type boats, the option of excursions grew even more.

Contribution to the local economy

Canoa Aventura also contributes to the local economy of La Fortuna, as it has a fairly large staff, including office personnel for reservations, and the operations department, as well as guides, transporters, boat captains, concierges, and more.

Sense of personal service to the client

While the company grew, it never lost its sense of personal service to the client. Another important point that differentiates us is that we always offer unique tours, thus showing our clients the beauties of the northern region and La Fortuna, both famous destinations but also unique and authentic destinations, which is to the liking of many people.
