This tour offers travelers an excellent opportunity to explore some of the best attractions in the Arenal area.
The tour starts with a safari float along the Peñas Blancas River enjoying the tranquility of the lower section on this easy-going, nature-lover’s safari float. The river winds slowly through the rainforest outside Arenal. Birds and other animals are most active in the morning and you’re pretty much guaranteed to spot a number of creatures while floating on our inflatable rafts. You will experience a relaxing tour, led by one of our expert bilingual naturalist safari guides. He will provide a safe environment and point out the beautiful flora and fauna of this region including animals like sloths, monkeys, and toucans.
We will make two stops on our journey, one to enjoy our fresh locally grown tropical fruits and again for a delicious, authentic Costa Rican Organic lunch. You’ll also learn about the growing, harvesting, and production of chocolate, medicinal plants, fruits and sugar cane.
Finally, as you learn about sugar cane in Costa Rica your guide will help you extract juice from the cane in a traditional fashion, and you’ll get to enjoy a glass of pure sugar cane juice. A sweet ending to a sweet tour!

Cancellation by guests Sometimes your plans may change or unavoidable situations arise that necessitate having to cancel or change your trip plans… we understand that. We provide you with a generous 72-hour cancellation policy for individual bookings, and 7 days for groups of 9 or more, group deposits are non refundable. Please note that our trips depart rain or shine. However, please understand that once your trip is booked we reserve your space, assign staff and resources to ensure your trip runs smoothly. Since few of these costs are recoverable at the last minute, cancellations or reschedules inside of 72 hours (7 days for groups of 9 or more) of your scheduled trip departure are non-refundable and you will be fully charged. Cancellation by Costa Rica Descents Although we rarely cancel our trips, Costa Rica Descents reserve the right to cancel any trips due to low or dangerously high water levels, weather and related conditions or insufficient bookings, a full refund will be made available in this event. If we do have to cancel we will do everything in our power to offer a comparable substitution, and if we do have time we will contact you to offer a solution, unless river levels rise overnight. As soon as we know we will let you know and at that time you can either cancel with a full refund, or you can choose the solution that we have offered. Liability Although we take every precaution to ensure that you have a safe and fun trip, white water rafting does have inherent risks. A release/waiver must be signed prior to the trip and is a condition of participation.
