Wonderful tour, very surprising and beautiful. We recommend you to do it! It was one of the most exciting trip we made in costa rica. The best is to walk from drake to a jungle path to rio claro (1h and a half walk) ! Enjoy!

We scaled up a steep path under a waterfall and... More

We had a great experience! First of all: the welcome by Ricardo was very friendly and nice, he has a great little spot just at the mouth of the Rio Claro. Secondly: the canoe tour was great! So much fun and our very friendly 'captain' Steven waited ten minutes smiling when I was deliberating whether to jump a cliff or... More

This was the highlight of our stay in Drake Bay. Beautiful scenery and incredible value. A refreshing and invigorating activity, esp. recommended for older children. Saw toucans and monkeys, as well as hawksbill turtles that just hatched! Can swim or boat up the river. Very friendly and helpful guide and owner.

Besides the canoe tour to wonderful waterfalls and a natural jacuzzi you can watch Adriana creating bacelets and necklaces made of materials found at the beach. What we really liked is Ricardo's effort of conserving sea turtles by saving the eggs from... More

We had fun jumping from a rope swing (haven't done that in 15 years; The river is beautifully clean and clear, and docking the canoe later and walking up the waterfall is an adventure not to be missed. Kids would have fun here.

Ricardo has a wonderful tour set up for tourists that want a little adventure. We did a 3 hour tour with our 11, 9 & 7 yr olds. You have to go on this tour, you will love it. We even spotted monkeys while canoeing back down the river. Your kids should be swimmers to really enjoy this tour. There... More

One of my favorite days. The snorkeling was not as spectacular as Cano Island but no jellyfish and still nice. Gorgeous beach, fun walk..
