Safari Float - Day Trip from Arenal Costa Rica

Jungle Safari Float on Sarapiqui River Costa Rica

Safari Float .....Serenely explore the river by boat on this floating safari nature excursion... safe for all ages!  The Jungle Safari Float is a late morning, day trip from Arenal Costa Rica on the Beautiful Sarapiqui River. It is the ideal rainforest river float for those looking for a peaceful encounter with the plentiful wildlife that abounds along the riverside jungle.

Professional bilingual naturalist guide will assist you as you paddle along a smooth, class-1 river and explain about the various plants and animals of this nature filled area of Costa Rica. Your experienced guide will point out a wide array of flora and fauna. You’ll float next to the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor (San Juan La Selva Biological Corridor) which is home to sloths, howler monkeys, lizards, and black river otter and an incredible amount of tropical birds such as ospreys, boat-billed herons, parrots, kingfishers and the great green macaw (which is on the endangered species list). 

You will also have the chance to get out of the raft and go into the river and refresh yourself as we go down the river.

This morning or ealry afternoon Safari Float tour is a must for photographers! The tour will start with a pick up from your Arenal hotel about 8.30am or at 11.30 and you'll be driven to the start point (about an hour or so away) through some beautiful countryside.

You'll finish your day with a delicious traditional Costa Rican lunch called a “Casado” along with some Costa Rican gourmet coffee at the Red Eye Frog Restaurant.
