Tour Description


The Cano Negro Wildlife Refuge is considered one of the richest sites in the continent for the observation of birds. Besides the abundance of birds, Cano Negro is also a refuge to many other rainforest animals, like sloths, three types of monkeys, caimans, lizards, bats, and the native flora of the wet lands. Our wildlife tour to this beautiful region leaves from your Arenal hotel, driving for about an hour and a half until Los Chiles, which is a rustic town only five kilometers from the border of Nicaragua, where we take the boat down to Rio Frio for about four hours. From the beginning of the trip, our professional guide will explain each one of the plantations that we will see on the way, as well as the flora and fauna of the region. At the end of your wildlife tour, a typical Costa Rican lunch will be served on the tranquil banks of the river.
