We’ll drive 45 minutes to Los Chiles, a culturally mixed village only 4-km from the Nicaraguan border. Once there, we’ll provide you the gear necessary for canoeing and after a briefing, you’ll be ready to get started.
We’ll take a 2½ hour canoe ride, which takes place in Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge. This refuge gathers together a group of 9969 hectares of humid areas considered to be one of the richest in biological diversity in Costa Rica. It gives shelter to a great variety of resident and migratory birds, three of the four different species of monkeys we have in Costa Rica, iguanas, sloths, turtles, spectacled caimans, and many other animals.
Besides, Caño Negro is also home to endemic types of fish and endangered animals, being a place essential for the country and unique as well. Its tremendous value makes this adventure worthy of living. While you glide along two curtains of the forest, you can explore the abundant beauty of this internationally recognized ecosystem and discover the fantastic resident fauna.
Finally, we’ll end the journey with a traditional lunch at Aventuras Arenal’s facilities in Los Chiles.
This trip includes a typical Costa Rican lunch, local fruits, natural juices, and coffee. Plus, it comprises a snack of bottled water, fruits, and cookies during the canoe ride.
