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.

Canoa Aventura started with the canoe tour, and the name is due to that. The main activity in the beginning was canoeing down the rivers of the area, 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.

Today, Canoa Aventura offers a smartly chosen selection of tours which includes the canoe tours at Rio Peñas Blancas, canoe tours at Caño Negro, but 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.
