Meet a driver at your downtown La Fortuna hotel for a morning departure, then make the trip to Los Chiles, a small village close to the Nicaraguan border.
Upon arrival in Los Chiles, transfer to a motor boat to explore the wetlands, which are fed by the Río Frío. Keep your eyes on the water throughout the tour, as caimans, fish, and even freshwater sharks can be spotted in the river.
White-faced monkeys, howler monkeys, and spider monkeys forage in the treetops, and the reserve is also an important stop for thousands of migratory birds that spend the winter in Caño Negro’s warm, shallow waters. Pause along the river for a lunch of authentic Costa Rican cuisine, then head back to Los Chiles, watching for wildlife along the way. This tour concludes with return transfer to La Fortuna, and drop-off at your hotel in mid-afternoon.
Please note: It may be possible to explore Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge by canoe or kayak. For details, please contact the supplier directly after booking.
