As you progress down the river you will come to the farm of Don Pedro where you will have the opportunity to get an up-close and personal glimpse of traditional Costa Rican farm life. Don Pedro will greet you personally and show you a little of the famous Costa Rica hospitality known as “Pura Vida.” Departing the home of Don Pedro, the final 40-minute segment of your river float experience will pass by the extraordinary vistas of Boca Arenal.

The rest of the day is yours to relax and enjoy poolside at the hotel -or- you may choose to visit the many natural hot springs or the nearby town of Fortuna for some local flare and restaurant options. Dinner on your own.

Day Three – Rainforest Canopy Tour and Horseback Ride

Costa Rica Family Vacation

Costa Rica is famous for its Canopy Tours. This is a not to be missed Costa Rica original. We will start our adventure with a 40-minute horseback ride through the Costa Rican countryside, followed by a short hike through a tropical rain forest. Along the way your naturalist guide will provide you with insights into the Flora and Fauna that you will encounter along the way. Common to the area are white-faced monkeys, howler monkeys, agoutis, a variety of snakes, and great diversity of birds.

The excitement and anticipation builds as you arrive at the edge of the rainforest and the first platform. High up in the canopy, you can glide through the forest via ropes and cables. This is an exciting and safe adventure for all, combined with an educational experience that you will never forget. The Canopy Tour concludes with a rappel ending at the edge of the rainforest and a picturesque river bend.

The rest of the day is yours to relax in the hot springs, go for a volcano exploration hike or hang out at the pool at your hotel!
