Excellent tour! José was our guide for the hanging bridges and he was a very informative and excellent experience. We had 4 children with us and he was very patient and tailored to tour to our needs. He brought a big lens so we could get pictures and see detail of animals/reptiles. We saw 3 different kinds of monkeys, poisonous frogs, birds, and snakes. Excellent tour, about 3 hours.

This was a perfect tour for our family with young kids. Our guide, Miguel, was excellent. It is clear that all the guides here are passionate about sharing their knowledge about Costa Rica. We learned so much and highly recommend this tour to everyone!

Great tour for all ages. Our family enjoyed the afternoon on the river. Alberto was a great guide and hopped into the river a few times to position the raft to see wildlife. We saw 2 owls, howler monkeys, 2 crocodiles, 1 sloth, a group of tiny bats, turtles, and lots of birds. Choose the afternoon tour if you want more shade. We had shade most of the time and some pleasant breezes. Our guide said they see more crocodiles in the morning, but it can be very hot. The paddling was not strenuous. The snack and chocolate after were delicious, and there were lots of howler monkeys to watch near the food area. The whole trip from pickup to drop off was about 4 hrs with 2hrs on the river.

My wife and I just had the most wonderful time with the Canoa Aventura tour group! Joe and Joshua were excellent guides as we explored Peñas Blancas river by raft. We saw white faced howler monkeys, a brown throated sloth, crocodiles, vultures, and cool lizards. After, to our surprise, we were treated to delicious homemade tortillas with fried cheese and sweet plantains, fresh coffee, and sugarcane tea. Then we had a mini chocolate making workshop and got to taste real milk chocolate! Everyone was so kind and informative. Thank you for a great time! Highly recommend -Alex and Sam

La Fortuna, Costa Rica is home to some of the most breathtaking natural wonders in the world. One of the top attractions in the area are the Lava Flow Trails, which provide visitors with an up-close view of the impressive Arenal Volcano. These trails wind through lush rainforest, with stunning views of lava rocks and lava formations created by the volcano’s past eruptions.

Another must-see attraction in La Fortuna is the stunning La Fortuna Waterfall. This 70-meter waterfall is a true spectacle, with crystal clear water cascading down into a pristine pool. Visitors can swim in the refreshing waters of the pool or take a hike to the base of the waterfall for an even closer view. For those who love hiking and nature, the Hanging Bridges are an excellent way to experience the beauty of the Costa Rican rainforest. 

After a day of exploring, visitors can relax in the natural hot springs that surround the area. These springs are fed by the volcanic activity in the region, creating a warm and soothing experience for visitors. Whether you’re looking for adventure or relaxation, La Fortuna is the perfect destination for nature lovers.
