Share the incredible wildlife of Costa Rica with the whole family on this gentle float down the Corobicí River. Located right in the heart of the Guanacaste province, the Corobicí is a wide and fast-flowing Class I and II river with moderate waves. This float is great for all ages, safe enough for children (7+) and gentle enough for the elderly to enjoy. Nature lovers and bird watchers will appreciate the lush vegetation and abundant wildlife in this tropical dry forest.
Along the float, we’ll have ample opportunity to observe lots of animals: howler monkeys, white-faced monkeys, coatis, iguanas and otters. You may also see some of the 300 species of birds that inhabit the nearby Palo Verde National Park: wood stork, kingfishers, roseate spoonbill, boat-billed heron, bare-throated tiger heron, white ibis and many, many more. All of these can be spotted in the trees along the riverbanks of the Corobicí and Tenorio rivers.
