The Rio Frio is the main water source for the lake area and the largest flowing river in the Arenal region. During the dry season, the water recedes, leaving only the Rio Frios main channel, and during this time visitors can typically spot neotropic cormorants, glossy ibises, wood storks, green-backed herons, blue-winged teals, black-bellied whistling ducks and more. For avid bird watchers, Cao Negro is one of the prime spots to see the Nicaraguan grackle or the endangered Jabirus, the largest bird found in Central America. Fishing is allowed on the Rio Frio from July 1 through March 31, and licenses are available through the ranger station in the village.
Some of the more commonly spotted species include howler, spider and white-faced monkeys, three-toed sloths, turtles and even Jesus Christ lizards. Keep your eyes peeled on the water, as a number of visitors have reported seeing the fin of a freshwater shark.
