Go on an incredible raft ride through the Costa Rican jungle and admire tropical plants and wildlife as your cruise down the river.
Rafting in Peñas Blancas
After picking you up from your hotel in Arenal, we'll head to the Peñas Blancas River. Surrounded by lush rainforest, volanic springs, waterfalls and canyons, we'll board our rafts and set off on a relaxing trip along the river.
During the raft ride, we'll admire the rainforest scenery of tall trees and tropical plants and enjoy the unique sounds of wildlife in the jungle landscapes of Costa Rica.
Many different types of animals inhabit the area, so if we're lucky, we may even spot monkeys, caimans, sloths, red frogs or bats. It's also very common to see tropical birds such as the kingfisher.
After three and a half hours rafting through the magnificent Costa Rican jungle, we'll take you back to your hotel in Arenal.
The wildlife that inhabits the area is very common in Costa Rica, however animals are unpredictable and we cannot guarantee how many or which species you'll see on the tour.
