Your day of adventure and sweet indulgence starts with a Safari Float down the Peas Blancas. This is a wonderful river trip for the youngest to the oldest nature lover in your group. The design of the rafts allow you to get up close to the banks as you spot wildlife, flora and fauna.

You will be picked up at your La fortuna area hotel, and take a short drive to the dock along the Peas Blancas River. Your knowledgeable, friendly guide will assist everyone with life jackets before helping you board the rafts.
