“A perfect cross section of Costa Rican hospitality, adventure, wildlife and culture”
I'm a travel agent and I love Costa Rica. I had taken a group of 10 women to Costa Rica, first stop Arenal, and we decided to do the Penas Blancas rafting trip on the spur of the moment. Our original plan was a trip to the Cano River but we did not want to spend hours in the car again and the close proximity of the river to La Fortuna appealed to us.
Were we ever glad! It was raining that day and the experience of the warm rain, the gently flowing river, the animals and the farm visit combined in a way that was truly memorable. Our guides were very funny, extremely well-informed about the animals and birds we saw, and very good at spotting wildlife on the riverbanks. We saw and heard lots of Howler Monkeys, crocodiles, snakes, lizards and many types of birds. Our stop at Don Pedro's farm for coffee and a snack was simply delightful. It was a truly charming way to see how some Costa Ricans really live. The Canoa Aventura employees were all very hospitable, professional and friendly.
