River Float Wildlife Tour + Llanos de Cortez Waterfall (Private Tour from Guanacaste)

From: $170.00 +VAT


River Float Trip with Llanos de Cortez Waterfall Stop – Private Tour from Guanacaste

This is a great opportunity to see wildlife by boat during your time in Guanacaste.

On an inflatable raft with your own private guide, you will explore the tropical dry forest around the lower Tenorio or Corobici River (depends on water levels).

As you float along the calm water, your naturalist guide will help you spot birds and animals. When we did this tour, we saw monkeys, bats, iguanas, crocodiles, a river otter, and many types of birds like osprey, herons, parrots, and kingfisher. You’ll also learn about the interesting plants and trees like gigantic kapoks, fig, and rubber. This trip is a combination of tranquility plus a bit of adventure when you pass some very safe Class 1 or 2 rapids. 

After the float, you’ll head to a local restaurant for lunch next to a scenic river. 

On the way back, you’ll stop at the gorgeous Llanos de Cortez. This waterfall is really wide and wispy. The base has a big pool that is good for swimming and a sandy “beach” area to hang out and take pictures. It’s easy to reach the waterfall. From the parking area, it’s a short 5 minute hike down some well-maintained steps.

Cost of Private Tour (only your family/group): $170 per person adults, $90 per person children ages 5-11. Rates plus 13% tax.

Offered: Pickup time is around 7:00 a.m./7:30 a.m.

Includes: Private round-trip transportation from your hotel or vacation rental home, private bilingual naturalist guides, all equipment, entrance fees, snack, lunch, and drinks.

Minimum Age: 5. If you’re traveling with younger children, we recommend the Palo Verde tour, which is on a sturdy pontoon boat.
